A man was wounded in the leg on Sunday from a mine which exploded as he was walking in the field in the Golan Heights. Many areas in the mountainous region have been cordoned off due to the thousands of mines which were laid during the various wars that Israel has fought. The man, who according to reports was a Thai worker, was awaiting evacuation by IDF resuce services.
