IDF Special Forces destroyed 2 Hezbollah terror posts in secret cross-border operation in Syria
In a secret cross-border operation, IDF Special Forces crossed the border into the demilitarized zone between Syria and Israel and destroyed two Hezbollah terror posts belonging to the Assad army, Channel 12 reported.
The operation came in response to Syria’s continued violation of the 1974 disengagement agreement and the growing military presence in the buffer zone.
Special forces from the Nachal and Yahalom units crossed into Syrian territory and destroyed two terror posts on the Golan Heights, according to the report.

“You’re facing the enemy, you’re about 500 meters away,” Cap. Michael Zilberg from the Nachal Brigade told Channel 12. “A mission like this requires you to be very focused. The moment you cross the border, your pulse quickens slightly. You are facing the enemy. You must understand that we were like 500 meters from a manned position,” he added.
The operation included “making our way in a silent and covert manner to the targets, placing a system of explosives on both outposts and blowing them up simultaneously,” a team commander from the Yahalom Special Forces said.
“We know about the collaboration between the Syrian military and Hezbollah. Every Syrian military establishment has the potential to become a dual military establishment. We won’t allow southern Syria to become southern Lebanon,” Lt.Col. Tal Goritzki said.
