Liberman Blames Assad's Forces for Golan Heights Explosion

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Tuesday that military forces loyal to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were behind a cross-border attack that killed an Israeli teenager on Sunday. "We received all the analyses and intelligence: it was clear that it was Syrian authorities," Lieberman told IDF Radio. "Assad's forces fired at the Israeli civilian, on the vehicles that had stopped by the border, and they need to pay the price," he added.
