On 27 July 2020, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) ordered residents living near the country’s Blue Line – the border with Lebanon – to remain in their homes until further notice due to a clash with Lebanese Hizballah militants . IDF officials later stated that at least three Hizballah militants attempted to enter Israeli-controlled territory near Mount Dov when a gunfight broke out. Israeli authorities stated that there were no casualties amongst IDF personnel; it remains unknown if Hizballah suffered casualties. The attack was reportedly a response to an Israeli airstrike in Syria the previous week that killed a Hizballah fighter in Syria.
