In News The Israel-Palestine Conflict
Israeli moves to arrest Lebanese shepherds have now taken a new turn after army units crossed the Israeli pullout line in the south and “kidnapped” 185 goats in the area of al-Shahel on the outskirts of the town of Shebaa.A Lebanese army communiqué said Wednesday the Israeli soldiers took the goats to the occupied Palestinian territories. However, after contacts between the army command and U.N. peacekeepers stationed in the south, Israel returned the goats to Lebanon. Israel usually detains Lebanese shepherds in the border area of Ghajar claiming they have crossed the Blue Line separating the two countries.
