Residents from the southern Lebanese city of Nabatiyeh Tuesday overnight intercepted a patrol belonging to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon [UNIFIL], state-run National News Agency reported on Wednesday.

The residents intercepted the patrol after “seeing its members photographing the street extending from Nabatiyeh’s western entrance to the Bir al-Qandil intersection,” NNA said.

“The Irish patrol, consisted of three military vehicles one of them an ambulance, was on its way back from Beirut and took roads that are not part of its routine route,” the agency added.

“It entered from Wadi al-Nmeiriyeh, Doueir and Marj Zabdine before reaching the city of Nabatiyeh where it was intercepted,” NNA said, adding that a Lebanese Army intelligence patrol arrived on the scene and that the Irish patrol was evacuated following a series of contacts.
