BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Hezbollah’s official media wing said on Thursday that the Lebanese Army arrested a U.S. national inside the city of Soor (var. Tyre) for suspicion of illegal entry from Israel.

Hezbollah’s military wing claimed a man identified as Colin Emery was arrested in Soor after he bypassed the border fences and entered Lebanon illegally.

He was allegedly apprehended while trying to purchase clothing at an unnamed store in Soor.

No further details have been released.
