An IDF force arrested a man today (Tuesday) who crossed over the Syrian border into Israel’s Southern Golan Heights. Apparently, the man was unarmed. He was brought in for questioning and as a result of the incident, farmers in the region were told not to cultivate their fields near the Syrian border.

As reported last month by JOL, a Lebanese citizen was located at the Kiryat Shmona Central Bus Station after he allegedly jumped over the border fence. He was arrested and brought in for questioning by the Israel Police and the Shin Bet.
