Jerusalem24 – local sources reported that Israeli forces today, Monday, seized a herd of sheep in the Janba locality, to east of Yatta town, south of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

Fouad al-Amour, a local activist, told WAFA that the Israeli forces confiscated about 100 sheep belonging to Nabil al-Jabareen under the pretext that they entered a prohibited area.
