The Syrian war raging since 2011 is "not ours, but we are preparing ourselves for the day when the situation will change," a senior IDF officer from the 210th territorial Habashan Division, based on the Golan Heights, said Sunday.

Israel can deploy major firepower to the area if needed "within minutes," the source said, adding that "we don't need more forces here."

The IDF will attack a Syrian army position in response to cross-border fire "only if it believes the position is tied to to the fire. We would never attack a position for no reason," said the officer.
