      Fear of Golan Terrorist Infiltration

      The area around the Golan Heights Jewish community of Neve Ativ was put under curfew and was included - along with the nearby Druze town of Majdal Shams - in a closed military area, against the backdrop of concern that terrorists had infiltrated the Syrian-Israeli border in the Majdal Shams and Ein Kania areas.

      Israeli troops were sent to search the area and roadblocks were set up. The alert follows an explosion in December that damaged an Israeli military vehicle.
