A Syrian man has been detained by Israeli authorities after crossing from Syria into the Israeli occupied Golan Heights.

Al Jazeera's Cal Perry said that the man is currently being described by the Israelis as "an infiltrator".

"The chief of staff of the Israli army said a few months ago that Israel would accept Syrian refugees, so if this man is a refugee, this could be opening the flood gates."
