IDF spots disguised Hizballah troops among Syrian refugees

Mingled among the 15,000 Syrian refugees parked on Israel’s Golan border, the IDF spotted Iranian and Hizballah troops in civilian garb, it was reported Saturday. The military spokesman said they were “only few in number” and the IDF was keeping an eye on them. The Syrian refugee encampment is situated 1,200 meters from the IDF’s Tel Fares outposts in the central Golan. Israeli officials have vowed never to allow Iranian or Hizballah military to set foot in the Syrian-Israeli border. Yet no action was taken after the sightings of the masqueraders, although they were likely testing the ground before signaling the arrival of larger groups.
On June 29, DEBKAfile warned: Middle East reality is such that the tent encampments the IDF is providing as makeshift havens for refugees will in no time accommodate infestations of dangerous Syrian, Iranian and Hizballah agents. Desperate refugees will accept a few dollars to support their families for donning bomb belts and blowing themselves up against Israeli positions on the border fence.
