Man Crosses Border From Syria; IDF Fires At His Feet
Keeping a trickle from turning into a flood, one foot at a time.
This does seem to be the kind of story moderator tu3031 would report. With glee...
[Ynet] IDF soldiers shot at the direction of a man who crossed the border from Syria, in the Golan Heights.

The IDF unit called at the suspect to stop, and when he failed to do so fired at the direction of his feet. The man was evacuated at a UN vehicle into Syria.

#5  He probably just wanted to get the hell out of Syria. The IDF guys probably understood that, but couldn't let him cross for the precedent it would set.

I once fretted about this very thing, but the IDF seems to have come up with a clever, proactive solution. I'll fret no more.

#3  Firing at his feet is something that egregious barbarians and baby-killers like the IDF would do. He may have gotten sand in his shoes and the resulting horror is unimaginable.

The benevolent, caring and peace-loving Religion of the Moon® folks in the region would promptly take him out on the spot with some other kinder and gentler method.

#2  At his FEET, Morons, shoot at his CHEST.
(Or the man was slightly out of range)

Send him to Canada.
It will test how prepared they are.
