The event took on the trappings of a spectator event on Israeli television, which broadcast the scene live with running commentary from reporters on the ground.

"Hopa!" exclaimed a correspondent for Israel's Channel 10 television. "A Palestinian youth just bolted from a trench. An Israeli sniper fired at him three times, but it looks like he missed."
How do we put discussions such as these in the broader context that includes the above? Or are we better to puts the specifics of the events in the Golan in the "broader context" of theoretical debate?
