A Lebanese man attempted to cross the technical fence into Israel Sunday in the southern district of Marjayoun, the Hezbollah-run War Media Center reported.

The man, identified as Ali Imad Marai, reportedly made the crossing near the town of Kfar Kila, and was immediately arrested by a passing Israeli military patrol.

Quoting informed sources, the War Media Center said that Marai had attempted a similar crossing six months ago and had been arrested in the occupied-Israeli settlement of Kiryat Shmona.

The War Media Center said the man reportedly suffers from mental illness, although they gave no further details.
