Report: Syrians Managed to Infiltrate

Syrian television reported that a third person had been killed in rioting at the border with Israel. The report said that the third person was a child. Arab rioters often use children as “human shield,” in the belief that IDF troops will be less likely to shoot at the child, who provides cover for rioting or terror activity.

The report said that several dozen Syrians had managed to get over the border and sneak into Israel. There was no Israeli confirmation of the number of those killed in the riot, nor of the reported infiltration.
