NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND HAS A COUNTRY COME UNDER SUCH ATTACK. SAVE THIS SMALL COUNTRY, LESS THAN THE SIZE OF MUNSTER FROM THESE ANTISEMITIC SAVAGES!
Sunday, June 5 Israeli troops opened fire on scores of Syrian civilians attempting to breach the border at Majd al Shams and Kuneitra. They kept on approaching the border, throwing rocks, after the soldiers tried to stop them with tear gas, firing at legs and loudspeaker warnings in Arabic that they advance on pain of death. Syrian TV reported three killed and 12 injured as attempts were made to break down the fence in other parts of the Golan border in search of patches not guarded by Israeli patrols. The soldiers are using sniper fire against pinpointed targets of individuals trying to damage the fence.
Reinforced contingents were ordered to act firmly and with restraint to prevent the mass breaches of Israel’s Syrian, Lebanese, Gaza Strip and West Bank borders of three weeks ago.
The Israel-Syrian fence was repaired and strengthened, ditches dug and signs of minefields put up. The IDF declared the Golan a closed military sector.
The Netanyahu government relayed messages to neighboring Arab leaders that Israel would not tolerate any more assaults on its borders.
This latest round of attempted Palestinian incursions was called for June 5 to mark the 44th anniversary of the Arabs armies’ defeat by Israel in the Six-Day War. Syrian TV is goading the demonstrators to sustain their assaults on the Israeli border fence after sending a special crew to cover the event – unlike the Assad regime’s brutal crackdown of dissent against his own regime which is closed to domestic and foreign media.
Police used stun grenades and tear gas to push hundreds of stone-throwing Palestinian rioters back from the Kalandia crossing to Jerusalem from the West Bank side. In Lebanon, the army and UNIFIL combined forces to prevent disturbances near the Israeli border.
