Israel fired flare lighting shells Friday night off the Lebanese coast and over South Lebanon's border town of Nakoura in search of its missing soldier, Al-Arabia TV reported.

Yasmina Bouziane, a spokeswoman for the UN Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) was quoted as confirming that she acknowledged that Israel fires flare shells 4-6 km off the Lebanese coast and over Nakoura where UNIFIL headquarter is located.

However, the spokeswoman told a radio that UNIFIL "has no information about the disappearance of an Israeli soldier."

There has been conflicting reports over the disappearance of the Israeli soldier.

Al-Arabia TV reported earlier on Friday night that the soldier disappeared while doing physical exercises near the borders with Lebanon.

But its reporter said later that the soldier was doing his exercise off Haifa shore where he drawn and was driven away by the wind, adding Israeli forces were looking for him along the shore reaching South Lebanon.

Earlier, Lebanon's ANB TV reported that Israel informed the UNIFIL command that an Israeli boat was missing in the sea.

The accident has raised fear of an operation carried out by Hezbollah in revenge of the assassination of its commander Imad Mughnieyh, as Hezbollah Chief Hasan Nasrallah promised.

Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in 2006, prompting Israel to launch a devastating 34-day war against Lebanon.
