Sudden IDF call-up of reserves after Syria announces Quneitra offensive this week

Israel launched an unscheduled military exercise on the Golan Sunday, June 10. Thousands of army reservists were ordered to report for immediate duty with full gear and come directly from their homes and work places. That the sudden IDF announcement did not set a timeline for the exercise’s ending indicated that it was prompted by the Syrian military announcement on the same morning of a major army offensive impending this week in the Quneitra region opposite Israel’s Golan border. The announcement also referred to a twin offensive against the Daraa province on the Jordanian border. The units taking part were named as the Syrian army’s 4th armored division for Quneitra and the “Tiger Force,” backed by 4th division elements, for the Daraa operation.
Israel’s Golan exercise was announced in order to deter the Syrian offensive.

DEBKAfile reported earlier that Bashar Assad ordered his army to go forward this week in the light of the failure of the talks in Helsinki on Friday between the Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint US Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. Valery Gerasimov, chief of Russia’s General Staff, to reach agreement on the Syrian question.

Our military sources report that Israel’s armed forces can’t afford to take the chance of leaving the Quneitra front under Syrian military threat. The Damascus announcement omitted to mention its allies. However, according to DEBKAfile’s sources, the Syrian offensive is planned to take place in conjunction with Hizballah forces and the pro-Iranian Shiite Liwa Abu Fadl al-Abbas militia from Afghanistan, which fights under Revolutionary Guards officers who have already taken up position outside Quneitra.

    Do Syria/Iran/terrorists hope to catch IDF off guard? Not likely. They’re cavemen with clubs compared to IDF.

I have read your past comments and you are full of hate towards the Jewish Religion so why don’t you tell us which religion we should all be to make the world a better place?

      As nationals from several muslim countries are dressing in syrian uniforms, that forces the IDF to consider all as hostiles.

      Let Syria attack inside their territory, once both sides are engaged, exhausted and out of position, attack anything that doesn’t have IDF or NATO friend/foe transmitter. Destroy every tank and military vehicle.

      The way to defeat Iran is to make the mothers with dead sons over thrown the mullahs. Kill every Iranian that enters Syria.

      Any cargo plane from Iran trying to land in Damascus must be eliminated before it lands.

        Great in theory but Israel always loses War of public opinion, especially when an Iran Air cargo jet loaded w “humanitarian ” workers gets hit.

            That’s right Sgt. The filth got a little sniff of what is coming last month. Its going to be massive as many targets must be neutralized quickly. A lot of people don’t realize how small Israel is – thousands of missiles will reek havoc unless taken out. I hope and pray they bunker bust that fat fk nasrallah

        Free Syrian Army Terror groupies dressed themselves in Israeli uniforms , together with Jordanians. While Israelis started to wear Jordanian uniforms . British and Dutch wear white and blue helmets, and Americans started to wear Saudi uniforms, In short its a festival of costumes –a Halloween of sort.

    …It is very encouraging to see, that the IDF abandoned the “Hubris” attitude, that almost destroyed

      I was thinking about our new Golan-1000 missiles of maximum 6 km flight.
      What if we come to exactly 6.1 km of your fortifications in Golan and just sit there?

      • Jun 11, 2018 @ 0:20 at 0:20

        The Golan-1000 (and anything else) will be taken out at the first sign they are considered a threat. Dont forget Israel owns the skies and will execute whatever it deems necessary. Everyone over there have been throughly warned of what to expect.

  • Jun 10, 2018 @ 16:53 at 16:53

    I have a better plan!

    Why are they not helping also the Arabs that happen to live in the West Bank area of Israel?

    I say mandatory enrollment of all 16 to 60 male-female and surprise parachuting South of Damascus would provide relief from a potential attack on the Golan Heights.

    This shall be a silent undercover civil operation, no firearms required, only ceder seeds and a small digging spoon. Their objective: grow a thick ceder forest across the highway as to make difficult any large troops travel towards Quneitra.

  • Jun 10, 2018 @ 17:30 at 17:30

    My dear children,

    The Golan Heights is already and old achievement of another generation.
    It is now your turn to contribute.
    Brush off the stinging Hezbollah, set a secure zone up to Litani River, this is what the homeland needs.
    Fight fair, but decisively, take care, bye!

    You guys read as if you are a bunch of deranged tweaked out teenagers. Let the Syrians do what they have to do, they are not going to attack now. Why attack when it could lead to the death of thousands of your citizens. Even to the point of Israel using a nuclear weapon Once a war starts you ha ve no idea where it will end up.

    • Jun 10, 2018 @ 18:04 at 18:04

      Yes we have bible prophecy we do you know how it goes you can read Ezekiel 38 and 39 chapter and Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah and you’ll see what happens if he tells you in there and Psalm 83 read them and he’ll know what happens Bible prophecy is 100% right and without Jesus there is no hope You’re not saved by any other name except for Jesus Christ who died for your sins on the cross

      • Jun 11, 2018 @ 1:24 at 1:24

        You have no,idea what Ezekiel was talking about. Read Revelations 20:8 as well. No one knows when these things are going to happen so right now Israel has to make the decision what is best for them. Not pleasing a bunch of idiots that want them to kill a bunch of Muslims. If you want to kill Muslims invade Iran yourself or move to the Golan

    • Jun 10, 2018 @ 19:47 at 19:47

      i think the israeli position is that the syrians are free to retake the south west if they are doing it for their own purposes. however here clearly hezbollah and iran want that area for a staging ground against israel. therefore i think israel may act to prevent this. divide and conquer — sunnis keep the the shiites at bay in the southwest of syria, both stay weaker than if one wins it all.

    • Jun 10, 2018 @ 21:29 at 21:29

      no, if they bring heavy armor into the demilitarized area thus breaching the 1973 truce then return to the cease fire lines within 25k of damascus

    • Jun 11, 2018 @ 10:37 at 10:37

      …Once a war starts you have no idea where it will end up.” We have a pretty good idea. No winners but lots of dead people and incredible damage. If Israel wanted to – it would have eradicated ALL of these vermin by now. But has not because it understands what an actual war entails. You don’t need to be a “professor” to work that out.

    The Talmud discusses the fact that eventually Israel will control all of the area up to and including Damascus. I look forward to this very soon. The only real “peace plan” is that which HaShem wants. Israel is for the Jewish People only. If non-Jews wish to live there, they have to abide by a minimum of the Seven Laws of Noah. The borders of Eretz Yisrael are given in the Torah and that is exactly where they should be established permanently. Some of the land on the other side of the Jordan River is also eventually going to be controlled by Israel, as it was previously by the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half of Menashe. You can learn more at Shalom!

    I wonder how many reserves are called up. Is Israel bluffing or actually getting ready for a war against the Russian Air force in Syria? I assume Putin’s general was bluffing in Helsinki. To defeat the Russian Air force Israel doesn’t need US Air support in Syria but does need it in the UN Security Council.

    Near Qunitera is a destroyed Mosque it looks like a Mosque shall look. In the hole which indicates the direction of mudslime prayer one can see charcoal as people where grilling there but also pee can be smelled there ….
    Qunitra exists twice. Old Qunitra is empty and under control of UN forces while New Qunitera was build about 6km to the east by the Syrians. So as long it is the new Qunitera there is not too much danger to Israel. Old Qunitera is conneted to a road 98 at the top of the triangle of Alone Ha Bashan and Ain Zivan. At that top edge there was a destroyed Syrian army building that invited many Israelis to tour here as the rotteness of the building invited people to spray the walls with nice pictures or just walk around or sit on the roof that has some holes, beware. But since some years the site is blocked by IDF which now took all of the road to old Qunitera.
    This road poses a danger for armed forces could invade the Golan from there as the protective valley to the south starts from here. But I am very sure that this place is very well guarded now by IDF. UN forces in old Qunitera are ti guard it but his string are they?
    The towns south of Qunitera like Nov and Ramat Magshimim are protected by the Yezereel Valley which is deep and holds an ancient railway.
    So it would be interesting where the IDF is exercising as there are some army areas and some fortified observation hills populated by IDF watchers and decorated with old rusty vehicles of the wars.
    Does anyone know which Qunitera was meant and where the IDF are playing?

      “Does anyone know which Qunitera was meant and where the IDF are playing?”


      The ultimate goal of the faux (Iranian, Hezbollah and Shiite mercenary infested) Syrian army attacking Quneitra is to attempt to take the Golan Heights as well.
      Hence, Israel stands ready with multiple options available.

    From the Debka article:

    Targeted killings of those Iranian RG officers are in order, followed by massive air strikes against the faux Syrian troops who go anywhere near Quneitra.

  • Jun 11, 2018 @ 21:31 at 21:31

    ” taken up position outside Quneitra.”
    which Qunitra!?
    As the old one is empty and UN held.
    If they attack the old Quneitra, then UN will show that
    they are too weak for self defence.
