10 Iraqi Kurds Seized After Sneaking Into Israel From LebanonTen Iraqi Kurds were captured by Israeli army after they sneaked into the Jewish state after crossing the Lebanese-Israeli border on Thursday, Lebanese security sources said.
The Kurds arrived at the border area from Beirut Thursday morning and entered Israel after snipping the border wire netting, the sources added.
Shortly after finding the intrusion, the Israeli army sent about 50 soldiers and eight armed vehicles to catch the kurds and finally put them into a military security position nearby.
Afterwards, the Israeli army checked the area thoroughly with patrols and helicopters. And the capturers are to be returned to Lebanon.
It is the third time of such entry of Kurds into Israel from Lebanon in recent months.
The intruders came to ask for asylum from the Israeli government but they all were repatriated by Israel to Lebanon in the past.
So far, dozens of Kurds who were sent back from Israel stay in the barracks of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) in southern Lebanon.
