An Israeli force attempted to kidnap a Lebanese shepherd on Thursday morning after crossing the line of withdrawal into Lebanon’s territories but failed in its endeavor, a statement released by the Lebanese Army-Orientation Directorate said.
The troops trespassed 25 meters into disputed Lebanese territories in the outskirts of the border town of Kfarshouba. They tried to kidnap, but failed, the shepherd whose name was not identified, added the statement.
Lebanese Army troops took the needed security measures in the area.
Meanwhile the issue of the breach is being pursued with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon.
