The IDF is preparing for an Iranian assault on Israel's northern border and fortifying positions and towns in the north, News 2 reported.

The preparations come as the security establishment believes that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards seek to retaliate for the strike on the T-4 military base in Syria last month. A number of Iranian military personnel were killed in the attack on the T-4 base.

The assessment of the defense establishment is that the Iranian retaliation will consist of the launching of missiles at Israel from Syria.

The IDF is undertaking a series of air and ground operations against the possibility that the Iranian response will be accompanied by an attempt to infiltrate Israeli territory both on the ground and in the air.

The Home Front Command instructed civilians to continue to maintain their daily routines, as the infiltration attempts are expected to target military bases and installations.

On Monday, the Chief of Staff of the Iranian army, Mohammad Bagheri, warned that "the Islamic Republic will give an appropriate response at an appropriate time" to "slight" aggressions.

In addition, Iranian proxy Hezbollah achieved greater power in the recent Lebanese elections.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that Israelis should not panic in the face of the Iranian threat.

"There is no room for hysteria and panic," Liberman said during the weekly Yisrael Beiteinu faction meeting Monday. "Yes, there is a complex situation with many challenges and threats, but we will know how to deal with all the threats and how to manage all the challenges."
