Analyzing recent terrorist attacks around the world, Israeli intelligence concluded that extremists have altered their global jihad tactics, focusing instead on westernized targets, Haaretz reported.
Shuhada al-Yarmouk (“The Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade”), a terrorist group that gained control of a 10-square kilometer area in the south of Golan Heights, where the borders of three states meet, could carry out such an attack, the IDF suggested. But an attack won’t happen soon, as the brigade is focused on fighting Jabhat al-Nusra, a terrorist group affiliated with Daesh.
IDF stated that the weakest point in the Golan Heights border, a crossing at Quneitra, is at risk of being targeted by jihadists. Israeli military representatives claim that extremists could carry out localized “tactical” attacks as well as Daesh-style attacks from the center.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah pledged to respond to the recent killing of a member of the Palestine Liberation Front, Samir Kuntar. Kuntar, spent 30 years in an Israeli jail, and died ten days ago in a shelling of a building in Syria attributed to Israel.
