Come to Israel and see how the land lies. See how the Golan rises steeply directly above the fields which are vulnerable therefore to stray shots which can pick workers off at their leisure. This had been happening for years. The troops' feet might not have landed on Israeli soil because Israeli soldiers kept them off it. They didn't stop cold but were stopped cold. They had every intention of penetrating into Israel as they had already done to murderous effect in 1948. However, the shots fired by them from the bunker on the hill had landed there for years, killing workers, Jews and Arabs alike, with impunity, turning weeding and harvesting and tending the vegetables in the fields into a daily act of heroism.
