Tonight (Monday), IDF forces eliminated four terrorists who tried to place explosive devices on the Israel-Syria border.
A special force from the Magellan unit ambushed the southern Golan Heights, near a military post, and identified a squad of terrorists placing explosives near the border fence.
IDF fighters and IDF aircraft fired in parallel at the squad that numbered four terrorists and hit them. There are no casualties to our forces.
“Northern Command forces are on high alert for any scenario, the IDF considers the Syrian regime responsible for any action taken in its territory and will not allow any violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” the IDF spokesman said.
According to the known details, observers from the Combat Collection Battalion on the Syrian border spotted the terrorist cell in the area at 11:00 PM, near Tel Fares. The special force of the Magellan commando unit ambushed the area and opened fire on the squad, along with fire from Air Force aircraft. Four members of the squad were killed.
It is unclear whether the terrorists who tried to place the explosive devices did so under the direction of Hezbollah, which plans to avenge the death of one of its operatives in an airstrike in Syria attributed to Israel.
