IDF troops on high alert on the Lebanese border intercepted a Hezbollah terror cell Monday on the Israel-Lebanon border, forcing the terrorists to retreat in a heavy exchange of fire.

No Israeli troops or civilians were injured in the incident, officials said.

On Monday afternoon Israel civil defense authorities suddenly ordered all residents of the upper Galilee region to shelter indoors after the IDF spotted a terror cell trying to infiltrate into Israeli territory.

The IDF already had reinforced its troops on the northern border and put them on high alert. The Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization threatened last week to attack Israel after one of its mercenaries was killed in an airstrike in Syria that they blamed on Israel.

According to the IDF, three to five terrorists crossed the international border and fled back to Lebanon after they were fired on. Contrary to reports in Lebanese media, the IDF stressed that no anti-tank fire was directed at Israel, and after about two hours the all-clear was given – northern roads were opened to traffic and residents were told to return to their normal routine.

However, the Hezbollah threat remains, and an army spokesperson statement said that several “tense days” still lie ahead.

The attempted attack took place in an area without Israeli settlements but also where there is no physical barrier between Lebanon and Israel due to the mountainous terrain. Hezbollah has carried out several attacks in the exact same area in recent years.

Earlier Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Hezbollah and its Iranian sponsors against attacking Israel.
