Hezbollah Claims Attack at Border was Kidnap Attempt

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Lebanon’s Hezbollah-backed Al Manar satellite network claimed on Tuesday that the bombing of an IDF patrol at the Syrian border was a kidnap attack, but the terrorist organization frequently makes such claims after attacks.

Israel has not responded to the report.

However, Israeli media reported that soldiers were trying to approach and arrest a suspicious man when the explosion occurred.

Netanyahu: Syrian Border Full of Jihad and Hezbollah Terrorists

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

The “border with Syria has lately been full of jihad and Hezbollah terrorists, placing us with a new challenge, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Likud party caucus Tuesday.

Speaking shortly after a bomb, apparently planted by Hezbollah, exploded at an Israeli patrol and wounded three soldiers, he added, “We have succeeded to maintain quiet against the civil war in Syria, and we will continue to act with aggressiveness to maintain the security of Israel.”

Update: IDF Fires at Syrian Army after Bomb Injures 4 Soldiers

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

The IDF shot at Syrian army posts Tuesday afternoon following the bomb blast that  hit an IDF jeep on patrol at the Syrian border on the Golan Heights Tuesday and wounded one soldier seriously.

Three other soldiers suffered light and moderate injuries.

The blast, at the border near the Israeli Druze city of Majdal Shams on the Golan, also scored a direct hit an armored vehicle that absorbed the impact without additional injuries to soldiers inside the vehicle. The fire at the Syrian army posts may have been intended to provide cover for the evacuation of the wounded soldiers to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.

Army tanks also retaliated with artillery fire on suspected Hezbollah positions in the Lebanese village of Kfar Kileh near the northern borders of both enemy countries,

Last Friday night, an IDF convoy was targeted by a Hezbollah bomb, and the terrorist organization is almost certainly trying to take revenge for an alleged Israeli bombing of a Hezbollah missile last month.

Every Day is Purim for Camouflaged IDF Soldiers (Video)

Monday, March 17th, 2014

IDF soldiers definitely know how to dress up, but it is has nothing to do with Purim because soldiers don’t dress up just fun and play.

After the Second Lebanon War, the IDF reached the conclusion that that all soldiers, not just those from the elite units, should incorporate camouflage into their training. “The Second Lebanon War was 33 days long. That’s a long time,” explained Lieutenant Sagiv Kehila, Deputy Commander of the Guerrilla Warfare Center. “We don’t want our forces to be exposed, so as to reduce the threat of the enemy striking. The best way to ensure this is for them to learn camouflage.”

Today, all IDF combat soldiers participate in a three-week course that teaches them everything they need to know about camouflage and how to use nature to optimum effect: how to turn trees and stones in the battlefield into hiding spots, how to spot the perfect tree and how to pay attention to the minutest detail. They apply elaborate war-paint to their faces, hands, necks and chests. Every minor mistake in creating a camouflaged position can lead to discovery.

“Every type of terrain is different.” said Lt. Kehila, “Camouflage in southern Israel is different to camouflage in northern Israel. The color of ground is each area is distinctive, and there are different kinds of trees and shrubs. The soldiers have to know how to blend into any environment.”

The 7th Reconnaissance Company’s newest recruits were tested on camouflage in the concluding exercise of their training. “Every morning, before sunrise, the soldiers had to be well hidden using the camouflage techniques they had learned throughout their training,” explained the company’s training commander Lieutenant Yair Zald. “If we managed to find the teams, it meant that they had failed at their task.”

The 7th Reconnaissance Company is part of the Armored Corps, and its soldiers are responsible for performing operational activities that cannot be achieved by tanks. They patrol the area before the tanks, collect intelligence, build observation posts and help locate wanted persons.

“In recent years, the battlefield has changed. Our enemy hides underground and fires at us from densely populated areas. Our goal is not to shoot even one bullet,” explained Lieutenant Zald, “This is possible only if we are not seen by the enemy.”
