IDF on high alert at Syrian border

As the fighting heats up on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, the Israeli army assesses that the Syrian army will launch its offensive on the rebels as soon as tonight, Walla reports.

A senior officer tells Walla the situation is “worrisome,” but adds “it’s clear to us that the Syrian army does not want to escalate the situation and is very careful [to avoid] errant fire to the Israeli side.”

“The IDF is monitoring the situation on the Syrian side and is prepared for all developments,” he says.

Israeli forces are heavily deployed along the border.

Earlier today, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz toured the northern front.
