The division’s commander, Brigadier General Roman Goffman, said in the presence and presence of UNDP commander-in-chief, General Ishvar Hamel, that “the IDF will not harm the security of the residents of Israel and its sovereignty and that the IDF holds the Syrian state responsible for everything that happens on its territory.”
The incident took place near Tel Fares, in the area of the southern Golan Heights. At around 10:30 PM, IDF observers spotted four terrorists placing explosives on the border and immediately directed an ambush by Magellan, who was on standby in the area towards the squad.
Last week, observers in the Har Dov area identified between three and five terrorists crossing the border with Lebanon only a few meters away. After the identification, IDF forces opened fire on the terrorists, including by firing on machine guns, machine guns, tanks, and masking the area using artillery barrages. The squad fled back to Lebanese territory.
