Israel warns Syrians away from frontier as Assad closes in

Israel warns Syrians away from frontier as Assad closes inBy Maayan Lubell and Tom Perry GOLAN HEIGHTS/BEIRUT (Reuters) – Dozens of Syrians approached the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Tuesday in an apparent attempt to seek help or sanctuary from a Russian-backed Syrian government offensive, before turning back after a warning from Israel’s army. Tens of thousands of Syrians have thronged to the Golan in the past month, fleeing a rapidly advancing offensive which has defeated rebels across a swathe of territory near Jordan and Israel and generated pressure on both neighbors to extend aid. If you want us to be able to help you, go back,” an army officer on the Israeli side of a frontier fence, which is partly lined with minefields, told the crowd in Arabic through a megaphone.
