Arab media reported that 400 Hezbollah terrorists and Iranian reinforcements arrived near Quneitra over the past few days, only a few kilometers from the Israeli border in the Golan.
In light of rising tensions on Israel’s northern border, the IDFs Galilee division began a surprise military drill Tuesday in preparation for a sudden outbreak of war with Lebanon following two airstrikes against Syria which Arab media attributed to the Israel Air Force.
As part of the impromptu drill, hundreds of logistics corps soldiers were mobilized without advance notice to extract emergency reserve equipment from storage centers near the northern Israeli city of Karmiel Sunday.
Around 60 military vehicles, among them armored personnel carriers (APC), tanks and transport trucks, to the front.
The scenario also required that the forces contend with the use of weapons that were discovered to be defective, including tanks and artillery pieces, demanding that the soldiers repair and transport them some 20-30km to the mock battlefield.
