BEIRUT: A Lebanese shepherd abducted Friday by the Israeli army has been released and is back in Lebanon, security sources told The Daily Star.

The sources said that UNIFIL handed over Youssef Mohammad Zahra to Lebanese military intelligence at the Naqoura border crossing late Saturday morning. Intelligence officials proceeded to debrief him.

Zahra was kidnapped Friday by an Israeli infantry patrol at 3 p.m. from Marj al-Teiss, the Lebanese Army announced the same day.

Marj al-Teiss is a disputed area claimed by Lebanon.

Israel also kidnapped and released a Syrian shepherd from Shebaa Farms last week.
