Beirut lodges complaint with UN over (Israeli) abduction of shepherd
Beirut lodges complaint with UN over abduction of shepherd

BEIRUT: Lebanon has lodged a complaint with the UN Security Council over Israels abduction of a shepherd from what it says was Lebanese territory at the weekend, a Foreign Ministry source said Wednesday.

Lebanon complained to the Security Council over the abduction of Lebanese citizen Imad Hassan Atwi by Israeli enemy troops, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The complaint letter said Atwi had been taken from the outskirts of the town of Sedana between Shebaa and Kfar Shuba in blatant violation of Resolution 1701.

Israel on Monday handed the shepherd back to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), and the Lebanese Army said Atwi was immediately hospitalized for serious injuries.

In a letter to Ban, Lebanon said that Israel had violated its airspace 347 times since the UN chiefs last report. It added that Israel had carried out respectively 33 and 75 sea and land violations.

Total violations since the adoption of Resolution 1701 in 2006 had reached 6,945, according to the letter. Lebanons memo referred to increased Israeli threats to Lebanon, saying they have reached a point of threatening full destruction of its infrastructure.

BEIRUT: The shepherd abducted by the Israeli Army was handed back to Lebanese authorities on Monday, with signs of mistreatment during his detention.

According to a spokesperson for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), who acted as a mediator between Lebanese and Israeli armies, injuries were found on Imad Hassan Atwis body following his transfer to Lebanon.

1. Good article...
Israel has captured a number of southern Lebanese residents since the cessation of hostilities in 2006. Earlier in June, two shepherds were taken from the Wazzani region by Israeli commandoes. The younger detainee managed to escape but a second, Hayel Zaal Mohammad, was questioned by the Israeli Army and handed back to Lebanese authorities one hour later.

A similar incident in February prompted Lebanon to lodge a complaint with the Security Council for what it termed a violation of its sovereignty. Seventeen-year-old shepherd Rabih Zahra was detained while tending his flock close to the village of Kfar Shouba before being taken for questioning at an Israeli military compound. He also showed signs of maltreatment while in detention.
