The United States said Sunday it is "deeply troubled" over clashes on the Syrian border with Israel that reportedly resulted in at least 14 deaths, and called for calm on both sides.
Hundreds of protesters rushed towards the ceasefire line on Sunday, cutting through barbed wire as they tried to enter the Golan Heights in a repeat of demonstrations last month that saw thousands mass along Israel's north.
"Despite numerous warnings, both verbal and later warning shots in the air, dozens of Syrians continue to approach the border and Israel Defense Forces forces were left with no choice but to open fire towards the feet of protesters in efforts to deter further actions," an Israeli army spokesman told AFP.
Have you seen the terrain!----Shooting down hill and supposedly aiming at the feet so they would not injure people is total rubbish, it was so steep they could hardly stand up.
Why wouldn't you expect to kill people under those circumstances.
Any other nation responding to this situation in this manner, that is shooting people not even on their land would be condemned by the world.
