This is a kind of wood louse, and from the little "tails" at the back, my best guess is that it's in the Porcellio genus. Hopefully that gives you a good starting point to get the ID for this little guy! Nice spotting :)

Although you are not quite in the Middle East, you are close to it and by the location this seems to be a dry place.

I don't really know which one is it... there is a list containing 178 of them in the link I sent you.
All I know about them is that they are land custacean.
