Syrian protesters along the Israeli border were paid thousands of dollars by President Bashar Assad’s regime to take part in Sunday’s demonstrations where more than 20 people were killed, ynetnews.com reports.
The Reform Party of Syria said intelligence sources told them that the Syrian protesters were poverty-stricken farmers.
They were paid $1,000 for showing up to the protests and their families would be paid $10,000 if they died, according to ynetnews.com.
