On the Syrian border the IDF had a three step process:
- Verbal warnings in Arabic
- Firing in the air
- Shoot specific protesters who touch the Israeli border fence in the FEET
In Hebrew the word for foot is a qualified extension of the word for leg so sloppy Hebrew can confuse leg, foot (and even toes). I asked specifically if the IDF Spokesperson meant feet. She said yes: they shot at the feet of protesters.
What more can the IDF do?
The other thing revealed was that when the IDF responded to a request from the Red Cross (Red Crescent?) for a cease fire to remove casualties (send in the chiropodists) some of the rioters took this as a great opportunity to attack again. Typical.
