Lebanese army slams Israel over kidnappings


The Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) on Tuesday issued a statement that the Israeli kidnapping of two Lebanese citizens in the Southern town of Rmeish along the Blue Line is “a violation of Lebanese sovereignty and the freedom of its citizens.”

The statement added that “the LAF are communicating with UNIFIL to seek the immediate release of the two citizens.”

Two shepherds were kidnapped by Israeli forces earlier in the day near the town of Rmeish on the Lebanese side of the border.

Amal MP Yassine Jaber commented on the incident bay saying:

“The two shepherds’ abduction from Rmeish, the unveiling of the spy gear and the Israeli overflights prove that only the approach of resistance (Hezbollah) is of use against this enemy.”

Amal is closely allied with Hezbollah
