IDF arrests shepherd who entered Israel from Lebanon

The Israel Defense Forces say troops arrested a shepherd who crossed into Israeli territory from Lebanon.

An IDF statement says the shepherd was taken for questioning after he was nabbed near Har Dov, a contested area claimed by Israel, Lebanon and Syria.

“The IDF won’t allow any attempt to violate the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” it says.

The Lebanese terror group Hezbollah has been reported to use shepherds to gather intelligence on Israeli military operations along the border.
