Israeli army is preparing for possible Syrian attempts to storm border on the Golan.
The Israeli defense force prepare for war with Syria as a Syrian reaction to a UN vote for a “Palestinian state”.
The IDF is also being trained on riot control for expected West Bank disturbances.
The possible engagement with the Syrian military in September, should the latter involve itself in new attempts by Palestinians in Syria to storm the border with the Golan Heights in connection with a UN vote on recognizing a Palestinian state.
The IDF acknowledges it may be necessary to deal with Syrian military intervention in such a scenario, which could occur if Syria tried to deflect world attention from the ongoing demonstrations in that country – and their bloody suppression – by creating an incident on the border.

In the military academies of the World, the generals train the colonels about the best way out of a corner. The best defense, is sometimes to attack first.
The Syrian regime is about to collapse. Like in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and Afghanistan: Muslims are killing each other in the name of “allah”.
When the internal bloodshed seems to be without end, the proposed solution is often to unite around an external enemy.
To be able to unite the Syrian people, to fight the “Zionist” enemy, a provocation to trigger common anger must be staged. A fake “Mossad murder” inside Syria, that can justify an Syrian response on the Golan Height’s, can not be ruled out.
In the criminal and totalitarian mind of Basher al Assad, this might look like the best bid to survive, being executed by the Islamic butchers that are closing in on his own court years.
