Syrian army kills Lebanese kid; no one cares

From Naharnet (Lebanon):
Syrian border guards on Tuesday opened fire at a Lebanese child killing him, the state-run National News Agency reported.

The short report said Abbas Abbas, 13, was shot and seriously wounded by Syrian border guards at the Grand River borderline in north Lebanon. He died later at hospital.

The development is the second of its kind in about a week.
AP refers to the victim as a "farmer" even though it notes that he is a minor.

But, luckily, the dead kid is an Arab who wasn't killed by Jews so this story will get no traction whatsoever and a potential international incident will be swept under the rug.
