Israeli troops stole a herd of cattle Sunday after failing to abduct a number of shepherds in the outskirts of the southern town of Shebaa inside Lebanese territory, state-run National News Agency reported.
“An Israeli infantry force crossed the border this afternoon in the Jabal al-Zalqa area in the outskirts of the town of Shebaa, where it tried to kidnap a number of shepherds who eventually managed to escape,” NNA said.
After their botched attempt, the soldiers nabbed a herd of cattle and took it to the occupied Shebaa Farms, the agency added.
Al-Manar television identified the shepherds as Mohammed Hashem, Youssef Zahra and Khodr Nabaa.
On June 1, a Lebanese shepherd escaped an abduction attempt by Israeli troops in a nearby area.
In April, Israeli troops made an incursion into Lebanese territory in a bid to abduct a shepherd but the attempt was foiled by the Lebanese man's dog.
Israeli forces had abducted several Lebanese shepherds in recent years. They were all released after interrogation.
