JNS.org – The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is preparing for possible attacks and infiltration by the Islamic State terror group on its northern border in the Golan Heights.

Currently, the IDF estimates that 95 percent of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights is controlled by rebel forces. But Russian air strikes in Syria are edging the jihadist group about 25 miles from the Israeli border. Islamic State has advanced weaponry, the IDF warned, but several intelligence and security measures have reportedly been put into place in preparation for an attack.

The IDF has other terrorist groups fighting in southern Syria under surveillance, including the Shahada Yarmuk militia, which is affiliated with Islamic State and currently fighting al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusra Front in Syria.

    How does the EU propose that ISIS label the products they export from Golan if they take control of it? Still ‘illegally occupied Palestinian territory’? Or the more elegant “Islamic People’s Republic of Daesh”?
