As you may recall, on the night between Thursday and Friday, IDF fighters located a skimmer that penetrated the territory of the State of Israel in the Hermon area, in the border area with Lebanon. The skimmer was under surveillance and was shot down by an IDF force. The IDF spokesman said that the army “is in high readiness in the northern arena and will not allow any violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel.”
At the beginning of last week, an IDF force thwarted an attempt by a squad of terrorists to place explosives on the Syrian-Israeli border. The Air Force fired in parallel at the squad, which numbered four terrorists, and hit them. In response to the incident, the IAF attacked Syrian army targets in southern Syria. The targets attacked included observation posts and means of gathering intelligence, anti-aircraft guns and means of command and control at Syrian army bases.
