BEIRUT: Israeli troops kidnapped a shepherd from the southern Lebanese village of Shebaa early Wednesday, the state-run National News Agency said.

NNA said the shepherd, Ismail Khalil Nabaa, was taken to the nearby Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms.

U.N. peacekeepers are exerting efforts with Israel to ensure his release, NNA added.

Israeli troops often kidnap shepherds only to release them hours later.
