Syrian who tried to enter Israel hospitalized with dog bite

A 15-year-old Syrian youth was admitted to the Ziv Hospital in Safed in light condition, after being bitten by a dog belonging to the IDF's canine unit Oketz while attempting to enter Israeli territory.


The Oketz Unit detained the boy on the Israeli-Syrian border and he was then taken in for questioning. The reasons for his attempted entry are still pending investigation. (Yoav Zitun)
