Israel’s army places new land mines along occupied lands-Syria borders,
preventing protesters from rushing into the Golan Heights.
An Israeli army magazine says the military is planting new land mines along the border with Syria, claiming Israel worries about Syrian protesters’ rush into the Golan. “The activities are intended to thicken landed mines and strengthen obstacles,” said engineer Maj. Ariel Iluz. “Combined with our military forces and snipers, these are supposed to delay or even prevent a lot of people from crossing the border,” Iluz added.
International community heavily criticized Israel earlier after its soldiers opened fire on Syrians and Palestinians who broke through the fenced border into the Golan Heights during rallies. Around 35 protesters were killed, the Associated Press reported.
According to the Huffington Post, Palestinian sprotested Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights, condemning the death of hundreds of thousands of Arabs during the war in 1948.
While waves of revolutionary movements are crossing the Middle East region, Israel disappointedly abuses conditions to justify its mischief towards the residents.
