Israeli army turns away displaced Syrians along Golan Heights

Golan Heights
Scores of displaced Syrians were turned away by the Israeli army units on Tuesday as they attempted to approach the border fence along the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.


They stopped some 200 metres away, before an Israeli soldier told them to leave.

"You are on the border of the State of Israel. Go back, we don't want to hurt you," the soldier shouted in Arabic through a loudspeaker at the crowd, live Reuters TV footage showed.

The crowd, which included women and children, then walked back slowly towards the IDP encampment. Some stopped midway and waved white cloths in the direction of the Israeli frontier.

The group is among tens of thousands of Syrians who have arrived near the frontier over the past month following renewed fighting along the country's southern Deraa and Quneitra provinces.

"Go back before something bad happens. If you want us to be able to help you, go back," the Israeli army officer told the crowd "Get a move on."
