Syrian paper claims four killed by IDF Sunday were innocent civilians
[IsraelTimes] Syria’s al-Watan newspaper claims that the four people killed by the border fence in Sunday night’s security incident were "four citizens walking in the village close to the ceasefire zone, when they were targeted by Israeli shelling."
The Israeli army has said the four were gunnies who crossed the border and planted bombs to attack Israeli troops.
Local sources tells al-Watan that among the "deaders" was one Faisal al-Saeed, a local official in Syria’s ruling Ba’ath party.
Al-Watan is owned by Rami Makhlouf, formerly one of Syria’s richest men and a close confidant of President Bashar.
