JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israeli troops late Friday shot what the military said were 'infiltrators' trying to breach a separation barrier from the Syrian-controlled side of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

"Soldiers detected two armed suspects infiltrating into Israel and tampering with the infrastructure of the Israeli-Syrian border of the Golan Heights," a military statement said.

"The Israeli army opened fire. Hits were confirmed."

The Israeli news site Ynet reported that the two men were killed.

Israeli troops did not carry out arrest procedure before opening fire, the Ynet report said.

Israel, which is technically at war with Syria, seized 1,200 square kilometers (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights plateau during the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the international community.

Last Wednesday Israeli aircraft struck inside Syria in the wake of a bomb attack on the heights which wounded four Israeli soldiers.

Since the Syrian civil conflict erupted in 2011, the plateau has been tense, with a growing number of stray projectiles hitting the Israeli side, prompting an occasional armed response.

#Out Liar Makes it easier for Israel to carry out extrajudicial killings, by saying "all Palestinians are suspects," does it?

re #1. It's a winning bet that the 'infiltrators' weren't armed, that the IDF just made that bit up, and that you are one of those lovable folks who manage to support Israel by the wonderfully simple device of just blindly believing they don't lie. I've been away from home, so my internet contact has been limited -- and it's actually been a relief to be free from this poisonous nonsense for a bit. Someday, the Palestinians will have the same luxury.

#2 post is the from the fake Outlier. I would never make such a sweeping, malicious statement. Readers should accept no substitutes and poster #2 should find his own handle.
