IDF shoots armed man who infiltrated from Syria into the Golan

IDF troops shot and lightly wounded an armed man who infiltrated into the southern Golan Height from Syria Wednesday overnight. Soldiers patrolling the area identified the man approaching the border fence, which is several meters south of the international border. This meant that the man was already inside Israeli territory. The troops called on the man to halt, a command he did not obey. They then fired at his legs, lightly wounding him. He was evacuated to hospital in Tiberius for treatment.
