Mentally Ill Lebanese Man Says Hezbollah Forced Him to Cross Into Israel

The Times of Israel reports: The Israeli army arrested a mentally ill Lebanese man on Sunday, after he crossed the security fence, claiming he was pressured to do so by two Hezbollah operatives who had threatened to have him institutionalized.
