On a tour of the Golan Tuesday with senior IDF officers, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said: “We are helping Syrian civilians face the winter, and sending baby food and other essentials to the Syrian villages of Golan which are under (Syrian military) siege and cut off from aid from any other source.”  Syrian army gunfire on an Israel Golan patrol Monday was deliberate, he said. No one was hurt. Ya’alon also offered the view that the Syrian war would stretch out for a long time without a decision.
