BEIRUT: The Lebanese soldier behind the recent killing of an Israeli soldier had probably only planned to deter his victim from engaging in “provocative and indecent” acts on the border, a local Lebanese newspaper reported Friday.

Al-Liwaa newspaper, quoting a source, said Lebanese soldiers stationed on the border had been repulsed for weeks by the Israeli soldier who visibly “urinated” in a “provocative and indecent” manner.

The Lebanese soldiers saw the behavior as an affront to them and one of the soldiers, identified in the report as Hasan Adel Ibrahim, decided to shoot at the Israeli “possibly not with the aim of killing but rather terrorizing him.”

On Sunday, a Lebanese soldier shot and killed an Israeli soldier on the border dividing the two states, in an act that both the Lebanese government and the United Nations Interim Forces in south Lebanon have said was unsanctioned by the Lebanese military.

The Israeli army identified the victim of the border incident as Shlomi Cohen, 31.
