Israel Nabs 2 Shepherds as 12 Troops Breach Electronic Fence

W300

An Israeli commando force on Wednesday kidnapped two shepherds in the vicinity of the southern border town of Shebaa, the National News Agency said.

It identified the shepherds as Lebanese national A.D., who hails from Shebaa, and Syrian national M.A., saying they were taken into the occupied Shebaa Farms.

“In coordination with UNIFIL, the Lebanese Army is working on recovering the abductees,” NNA added.

Separately, twelve Israeli soldiers breached the electronic fence at the Kroum al-Sharraqi area in the outskirts of the town of Mays al-Jabal without crossing the U.N.-demarcated Blue Line, the agency said.

They later withdrew and retreated behind the cement wall, it added.

I stil don't understand. Which of the two was in the territory of the other, the Lebanese in Syrian territory or the Syrian in Lebanese territory.
What is the big deal if the Israelis did not cross the UN-demarcated Blue Line?

Easy peasy, there’s a village called Shebaa, a part of it is on Lebanese soil, the other controversial side is Syrian and annexed by Israel. Its inhabitants are Sunni unlike most of the towns in the Nabatiyeh governorate.

Is Israel planning on trading the two shepherds for the Israeli civilians being held by Hamas?
