TUBAS (Ma’an) — Israeli forces confiscated dozens of livestock in the northern Jordan Valley on Sunday, the local governor said.

Troops seized around 100 cows from Palestinians in Ein al-Hilweh and al-Maleh, Tubas governor Marwan Tubassi told Ma’an.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

In August, the local council told Ma’an that forces had confiscated livestock from shepherds and farmers and imposed a fine of 15,000 NIS for them to be returned.

The villages lie in an area of Israeli control in the Tubas governorate.

In March, Bedouin village council head Aref Daraghmeh said that Israel’s Nature Authority was threatening Palestinian residents with fines of more than 5,000 shekels for picking tumbleweed in the area.
