'Brave' Syrian warriors murder 13-year old 'Israeli Arab'

'Brave' Syrian soldiers targeted an Israeli truck in the Golan Heights on Sunday - deliberately according to the IDF - killing a 13-year old 'Israeli Arab' boy and critically wounding his father.
A 13-year-old boy was killed and two other people were injured in the Golan Heights Sunday in cross-border fire from inside Syria that hit a civilian vehicle carrying out routine maintenance work for the Defense Ministry.
IDF tanks immediately returned fire at Syrian army positions in response to what an IDF source said appeared to be a deliberate attack on the truck.
One of those injured in the attack was in serious condition, while the other suffered light injuries.
The teenage boy killed in the attack, Muhammad Karaka from Arraba in the lower Galilee, had been accompanying his father, a contract worker who was carrying out work at the border for the Defense Ministry.
Following the attack, an army source said it found what appeared to be a hole in the frontier fence. Army sources said they did not yet know whether the attack took the form of a shell, or another type of weapon.
The latest evaluation was that the truck was hit by an anti-tank missile. 
"We know that the attack was carried out from an area under the control of Syrian rebels, but we're not at all sure that this was a Syrian rebel attack," said a source.
"It seems this attack was the result of direct fire [on the truck]," the source said.
Assad and his generals may figure that attacking Israel would be popular and may distract his population from the bloodbath his army is perpetrating.
