In light of assessments conducted by Northern Command, it was decided to reinforce units stationed in the Golan Heights with armored and artillery forces.
The forces were deployed this morning as part of the IDF's preparedness in the face of developments in the Syrian Golan Heights near the border.
"The IDF attaches great importance to maintaining the separation of forces agreement between Israel and Syria of 1974. In addition, the IDF will continue to insist on the principle of non-involvement in what is happening in Syria, alongside a policy of resolute response to the violation of Israel's sovereignty and risk to its residents,” the IDF said.
“Humanitarian assistance has been provided by Israel for years and continues today as needed."
