One report claimed that he threw the pages at locals who he encountered and fled the scene.
On Lebanese social media, an alleged picture of the man is in circulation; reports say that he was photographed while shopping for clothes.
Allegedly, he attempted to cross over into Lebanon via the village of Ayta ash Shab, the same village from which a Hezbollah unit attacked IDF forces and starting the Second Lebanon War in 2006.
IDF forces canvassed the norther border on Tuesday using helicopters, and Lebanese army forces and Hezbollah units searched for the man on the Lebanese side of the border.
It remains unclear what motivated him to cross into Lebanon.
