Israel has placed its northern military forces on the ready opposite the Lebanese and Syrian Golan borders, closed northern skies to civilian air traffic and deployed Iron Dome anti-missile missiles in the Galilee region. These preparations were made in case Hizballah decides to hit back for Israel’s targeted assassinations of six Hizballah and six Iranian officers, including an Iranian general, on the Syrian Golan Sunday. They will remain in force until further notice.
