From Bad To Worse: The civil war in Syrian took one step closer to becoming an international conflict today. While the war didn’t receive much attention during the presidential debates, it seems increasingly likely that President Obama will be forced to intervene or provide a convincing reason for inaction in coming months. What role, if any, do you think outside nations should play in the conflict? source

Syrian tanks cross into Golan Heights DMZ

  • 3 Syrian tanks crossed into the demilitarized zone in the Golan Heights today, the first such breach in 40 years. Israel’s immediate response was to register disapproval with the UN, which may indicate they don’t view this as a pressing or threatening issue just yet. No indication has been given as to Syria’s motivation for the incident. The effects of the Syrian civil war have been felt in Israel of late, as misfired shells have detonated within their borders. source

"Anyone who tries to cross the border will be killed." That was the message Israeli soldiers had today, the anniversary of the day when Golan Heights fell from Syrian hands to Israeli ones. Today, dozens of protesters, mostly Palestinian, went up to the border of the strategically-important piece of land — and were fired upon by Israeli soldiers. At least 14 died, and hundreds were injured during the protests. Prior to the violence, Benjamin Netanyahu told Israeli soldiers to act with restraint but determination while protecting the border. “To my regret, today there are extremists around us trying to breach our borders, and threaten our towns and citizens,” he said to his cabinet. “We will not allow this.” source
