Israeli army initiates war games on the borders with Syria

Nazareth, (PIC)– The Israeli army started on Friday extensive military exercises on the northern border of 1948 occupied Palestine near the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

Eyewitnesses said that they heard the sound of explosions in the region after the Israeli army reinforced the presence of its troops and military vehicles along the northern borders.

The Hebrew media quoted the army spokesman as saying that this exercise comes within the framework of a series of measures taken by the Israeli forces on the borders with Syria to check their readiness to face any future possible scenario including armed operations that might occur in the Golan Heights.

Brig. Gen. Tamir Heyman, commander of the 36th armored division stationed near the northern borders, had recently stated that the Israeli army’s leadership is preparing itself for possible operations in the region, amid the absence of prior intelligence information.
