BEIRUT: Israeli troops opened fire at a Lebanese shepherd, killing two of his sheep, in the outskirts of the Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms Friday without causing him injury, the National News Agency reported.

The shepherd, Assaad Fares Hamdan, was attending to his sheep in the Birket Nakkar area in Shebaa’s fringes when he came under Israeli fire. Two of his sheep were hit and collapsed while he was unharmed.

The Lebanese Army and U.N. peacekeeping forces patrolling the Blue Line on the Lebanese-Israeli border were put on alert and increased the number of patrols following the incident, according to NNA.
