PNN/ Hebron/

Israeli Occupation Authorities on Sunday have confiscated a flock of sheep in the Yatta area, southern Hebron hills, occupied West Bank.

According to PIC, Anti-settlement activist Rateb al-Jabour told Quds Press that employees from the Israeli civil administration and the nature and parks authority confiscated 120 heads of sheep in Masafer Yatta belonging to the citizens, Jihad and Yousuf Ismail.

He added that the sheep were taken to the 1948 occupied lands, pointing to the possibility that heavy fines could be imposed on the owners at the pretext they were herding their livestock in a restricted area, PIC reported.
