The corrosive results of prolonged Syrian border clashes
How do you keep your borders from being breached in a way that doesn’t play into the other side’s hands?
In the short term, Israel survived Sunday’s clashes on the Syrian border with limited damage.
There were no IDF casualties, and there was no outcry from the world over what was clearly the country’s right to protect the integrity of its borders. The Syrian deaths are regrettable, but the responsibility for them rests squarely on the shoulders of those trying to infiltrate Israel.
