Obviously, they did repeatedly. The image here shows the tear gas the IDF released after those rushing the border ignored verbal attempts to retreat. Syrian officials did NOTHING to stop their citizens from rushing the border fence, which again suggests they had a hand in it. Act For Israel spent most of yesterday getting the truth out. [...]
