With millions of Syrians displaced by the country's civil war, surrounding countries are scrambling to figure out what to do with the influx of refugees.
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, however, is trying to prevent any refugees from coming across the border at all.
Sunday, he said, "Israel is not indifferent to the human tragedy of the refugees from Syria and Africa. But Israel is a small country, a very small country, that lacks demographic and geographic depth; therefore, we must control our borders."
