IDF reinforces Golan border, fearing Syrian terror attack
It goes to show how much Israel cares about their own citizens … Jews, Christians, Muslims, …etc and will defend them all. Syria however kills theirs.
The IDF fears that terror organizations will take advantage of events in Syria taking place on the Golan and will attempt to attack Israeli communities near the border. The steps include strengthening fences and barriers at the border.
In addition, the IDF has dug a wide trench to prevent vehicles from approaching towns. The various areas that have been identified as sensitive fall within the sector of the IDF’s 36th Division.
The Northern Command’s biggest fear is of a terror attack that penetrates inside Israel in which terrorists strike civilians on the Golan.
The operations branch has also prepared plans to deal with a potential influx of refugees fleeing from Syria, who may very well ask for asylum in Israel.
The IDF’s reinforcement of the border comes after an incident which took place nearly two weeks ago, in which Syrian army forces crossed the demilitarized zone near the border.
