According to Ma’an News Agency, an army spokesperson said that the deployment of Israeli forces comes in the wake of an assessment of the position of the “Northern Military Command”, in the light of developments on the Syrian side of the border, deciding it is necessary to strengthen the Golan Heights armored forces and artillery.

According to Ynet news website, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented on the matter, in a cabinet meeting, saying that Israel will keep protecting its borders and will keep extending humanitarian aid, but won’t allow anyone to enter Israeli territory.
