Syrian rebels have threatened to retake Golan Heights from Israel, and in response the IDF has begun reinforcing its presence along the border.
In the meantime, the forces are focusing on providing security for contract workers building Israel's new border fence with Syria - a fence intent on providing Israeli security in a post-Assad era.
The head of the IDF Operation Directorate has outlined a new operational plan for soldiers manning the border in wake of rebel advances towards the border region.
For now, the IDF's chief concern is gun attacks on those charged with building Israel's new border fence, much like the terror attacks plaguing workers building Israel's new Sinai-border fence with Egypt.

The tolerance and patients of the Israelis is just mind blowing.

(The rabbit hole that Obama is leading us down just gets deeper and deeper.)
Great strategic thinking.
The Syrian rebels are so weak - or so inept - they can’t beat Assad with help from all the oil kingdoms, Europe, and the USA.
Iran and obama don’t care about assad. They are arming hezbullah...and obama damn well knows it.

Didn’t we just send MILLIONS to these so-called “rebels” who are now threatening Israel? Lovely.
