In a recent briefing, IDF Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi warned that “for the first time in dozens of years, Israel has four borders threatened by terrorist breaching.” He was referring, of course, to the active Gaza and Sinai borders in the South and the Lebanese and Golan borders in the North.

Hamas has presented a constant threat of rocket and terror attacks along the Gaza border for years and Hezbollah has repeatedly struck at Israel from Lebanon since it emerged in the early 1980s. The Golan and Sinai borders, however, had been fairly quiet over recent decades, until the turmoil of the Arab Spring suddenly rendered them extremely unstable.
