Fearing Syrian Terror, Israel Reinforces Golan

The Israel Defense Forces is reinforcing its defensive positions along the Syrian border on the Golan Heights.

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.
