BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers from a canine unit arrested a 17-year-old Syrian teen on Thursday morning after he crossed a ceasefire line into the Israeli occupied Golan Heights, reports said.

The Israeli settler news agency Arutz Sheva said the army unit’s dogs caught the teenager and bit him.

The report said the Syrian, who was not armed, was taken for questioning by security forces and was then given medical treatment at the Ziv Hospital in Safed.

It quoted a military source saying that the detainee might have been trying to escape the fighting in Syria.
