Report: IDF Re-Entering Unused Golan Bases


The Israel Defense Forces have begun to staff abandoned bases in the northern and southern parts of the Golan Heights, according to a Tuesday-morning report by the Ma'ariv daily. One with strategic importance overlooks Israel's border with Syria and Jordan.

Arab media reported, about a month ago, that Syrian rebel forces conquered the area next to the southern Golan, driving out forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, taking control of a long stretch along the border.
