Israel reinforces security with Syria

Israel on Thursday ramped up security along its ceasefire line with Syria in the occupied Golan Heights as fighting between rebels and President Bashar al-Assad's regime intensified, Israeli security sources said.

With the clashes spreading across the Syrian side of the strategic plateau, Israeli troops were put on "very high" alert, an Israeli source said, speaking on condition of anonymity, the AFP reports.

"The Israel army is reinforcing the fence between Israel and Syria, by adding more barbed wire," he told AFP, indicating that it was motivated by "fears that refugees from the Syrian side could cross it."

"They are also digging all kinds of holes on the ground with bulldozers to prevent vehicles from coming in," he said.
