^ Israeli TV Shows Footage of ISIS Training Camp on Israel's Border
by ZeroHedge.com October 13th, 2017
Last November, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said (1) his country “won’t
allow Islamic State figures or other enemy actors, under the cover of the war in Syria, to
set up next to our borders,” but it appears this has already happened, to the point that a
sizable ISIS training camp has been set up just across the Golan Heights border with
Israel. Though Syrian al-Qaeda has long been a mainstay in southern Syria along Israel’s
border, this constitutes the first widespread public acknowledgment and confirmation
of a significant ISIS base of operations in the Golan region.
Israeli media this week is reporting (2) news of the base camp after Israel’s Channel 2 (3)
aired an extensive report with video and photographic evidence of what’s being
described as a training and recruitment center which has already attracted hundreds of
new terror recruits. Channel 2 (4) is one of Israel’s most visible and established news
broadcast channels and operates under “The Second Authority for Television and Radio”
licensed by the Knesset and the Ministry of Communications. According to the Times of
Israel’s Channel 2 said the commanders have made their way to an Islamic Statecontrolled enclave “close to the border” with Israel. They have set up a training camp to
which they have recruited 300 local youths, said the report, which showed footage
apparently of the camp and training sessions.
Among the commanders is one of Islamic State’s most notorious recruiters, Abu Hamam
Jazrawi, the TV report said.
The commanders are also now running Islamic State internet propaganda campaigns
from their new base, in place of the former campaign headquarters in Raqqa, the
extremists’ former de facto capital in northwest Syria where the fight to oust them has
entered what appear to be its final stages.

The Channel 2 exposé further notes the presence of multiple senior Islamic State
commanders at the camp, which suggests the terror group could be attempting to
relocate its assets to Syria’s south as it appears to be crumbling with the onset of SDF,
Syrian Army, and Russian forces in the eastern part of the country.
The Times of Israel acknowledges another shocking fact, which has itself become an
open secret (6) of sorts among Israeli defense and policy officials: what it calls the longlasting “live and let live” relationship with al-Qaeda in the region. The Times of
Israel explains (7):
Both the IS-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid Army and the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham,
formerly the al-Nusra Front, which is linked to al-Qaeda, have been set up on
Israel’s borders for years.
Despite a relatively long-lasting “live and let live” relationship with these groups,
the IDF has warned of a potential — some say inevitable — conflict with them
and has been preparing to respond to cross-border attacks.
Though the IDF has “warned” of some “potential” direct action against the most
notorious terrorist groups in the world which seem to be comfortably ensconced within
eyesight of Israeli border (8) posts, it has never taken significant direct action against
these groups, instead routinely targeting the Syrian army, Iranian-linked militias, and
Hezbollah with airstrikes. This is a general reflection of the Israeli strategy of regime
change in Syria, which has resulted in a well-documented history (9) of assistance to alQaeda affiliated rebel groups.
A Wall Street Journal investigation (10) found that this relationship involved
(11) weapons transfers, salary payments to anti-Assad fighters, and treatment of
wounded jihadists in Israeli hospitals, the latter which was widely promoted (12) in
photo ops picturing Netanyahu himself greeting militants. As even former Acting
Director of the CIA Michael Morell once directly told the Israeli public (13), Israel’s
“dangerous game” in Syria consists in getting in bed with al-Qaeda in order to fight Shia
Channel 2 News and the The Times of Israel also featured an image from a prior video of
a lone ISIS militant holding an Islamic State flag with the Israeli side of the Golan border
in clear view.

The Times of Israel (14) featured the above
image: “Threats from across the border in a
video released by an Islamic State affiliate on
the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on
September 3, 2016.”
In recent years, multiple current and former
Israeli defense officials (15) have gone so far
as to say that ISIS is ultimately preferable to
Iran and Assad. For example, former Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren in 2014
surprised the audience at Colorado’s Aspen Ideas Festival when he said in comments
related to ISIS (16) that, “the lesser evil is the Sunnis over the Shias.” Oren, while
articulating Israeli defense policy, fully acknowledged he thought ISIS was “the lesser
Likewise, for Netanyahu and other Israeli officials the chief concern (17) was never the
black-clad death cult which filmed itself beheading Americans and burning people alive,
but the possibility of, in the words of Henry Kissinger (18), “a Shia and pro-Iran territorial
belt reaching from Tehran to Beirut” and establishment of “an Iranian radical empire.”
With Israeli media now widely reporting the Islamic State’s presence along Israel’s
border we wonder why such a clear and documented fact doesn’t cause bigger outrage.
Though Israel’s Channel 2 bombshell report aired earlier this week, there’s been
resounding silence in the international press. ISIS is camping out along Israel’s border,
yet all we hear about is the supposed “Iranian threat” (19) to Israel’s existence.

^ (1) First IDF-Islamic State clash sends Israeli message: Don’t mess
For years, army officials have warned of attacks by terror groups in Syria; Sunday's
border skirmish in which 4 militants were killed was brief, 'productive,' and
unlikely to mark a new era
Analysis: 'I'm happy that they paid the price immediately,' says one expert

Israel, January 20, 2015. (Basal
A short exchange of gunfire between an
Islamic State-affiliated terrorist group and
Israeli troops on Sunday morning, which
ended with an IDF airstrike that killed four
militants, represented the first notable clash
between the two groups.
But experts do not see it heralding a major shift in the dynamics of the region.
On Sunday morning, at approximately 8:30 a.m., soldiers from the Golani Brigade’s
reconnaissance unit crossed the security fence with Syria to conduct an “ambush
operation.” While remaining inside Israeli territory, the soldiers came under attack from
Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, formerly known as the Yarmouk Martyr’s Brigade, an army
The soldiers returned small arms fire, but soon came under attack from mortar shells as
well. The incident concluded when the Israel Air Force targeted a truck “that had some
sort of machine gun on top of it” and killed the four terrorists who were riding in it.
“It was a short exchange, but it was productive,” IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner

Speaking at a weekly government meeting soon after the
incident, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised
that Israel “won’t allow Islamic State figures or other enemy actors, under the cover of
the war in Syria, to set up next to our borders.”
However, both the IS-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid Army and the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham,
formerly the al-Nusra Front, which is linked to al-Qaeda, have been set up on Israel’s
borders for years.

Despite a relatively long-lasting “live and let live”
relationship with these groups, the IDF has warned
of a potential — some say inevitable — conflict with
them and has been preparing to respond to cross-border attacks.
Sunday saw the first case of an IS affiliate deliberately attacking Israeli troops inside
Israel. (Numerous mortar shells have fallen inside Israel, some of which may have been
fired by these terrorist groups, though most were likely spillover from the fighting in
Syria, rather than a directed attack.)

The incident ended relatively quickly and with no Israeli
troops injured — a success, according to Brig. Gen. (res.)
Nitzan Nuriel, who spoke to reporters as part of a press
conference organized by The Israel Project.
“I’m happy that they paid the price immediately. I believe that the message was strong
enough and simple enough: Don’t mess with us. We do not cross the border. We take
actions on the Israeli side, and therefore you cannot open fire against us. If you do,
you’ll pay the price,” Nuriel said.
‘I don’t think that someone’s going to make a decision to open a new front
against us. This is the last thing that ISIS needs’
According to Nuriel, who formerly served as an operations officer in the Northern
Command and as head of the Prime Minister’s Office’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau,
operations like the one on Sunday are meant to prevent enemy forces from setting up
too close to the Israeli border.
“Israeli special forces and other forces take actions from time to time in what we call the
‘gray area,’ the pocket between the fence and the official border with [Syria],” Nuriel
Generally speaking, these campaigns by Israeli troops near the border go undisturbed by
the various groups involved in the fighting in the Syrian civil war, who look to steer clear
of the IDF and concentrate on their conflict.

“I don’t think that someone’s going to make a decision to open a new front against us.
This is the last thing that ISIS needs,” he added, using one of the terror group’s many

According to Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, a former
Military Intelligence chief, this clash could indicate a
change by the Islamic State and its affiliates, which may look to make up for their
battlefield losses with a public relations win, i.e., an attack on Israel.
“We don’t know yet if this is a change in the policy of Daesh or just an occasional,
unplanned exchange of fire,” he said, using the Arabic nickname for the Islamic State.
“As we know they are under pressure everywhere,” he said, referring to the campaigns
against the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq. “So maybe it’s a way to say, ‘We’re fighting
Israel, come with us.'”
However, both Yadlin and Nuriel found this explanation less likely than the alternative,
namely that it was a spur-of-the-moment decision by a low-level commander.
“Maybe it’s a way to say, ‘We’re fighting Israel, come with us.”‘
“I think today was not a planned strategy, but we’ll have to wait and see,” said Yadlin,
director of the Institute for National Security Studies think tank.
“I believe that the decision to open fire against our soldiers was a local decision. It was
not something that came from any upper echelon headquarter,” Nuriel added.
Yadlin’s analysis was partially based on the type of attack carried out on the border: a
small-scale exchange of light arms and mortar shells — far from the doomsday scenario
facing the Jewish state vis-a-vis the Islamic State.
“This is not the worst case [scenario]. The Daesh-style attack is normally a truck that is
loaded with explosives or suicide bombers — this is not what we saw this morning,” he

If the ISIS killers take on the Golani Brigade, their lives will be short as proven by the
reported incident. ISIS is good at brutal murder and oppression of unarmed people, but
it is no match for the IDF.

I've always wondered what would happen to ISIS if/when they faced a real army. Even
the current Iraqi army has started to have some success.

The biggest mistake ISIS, or any of a plethora of Islamic terror-groups in Syria,Lebanon
or Egypt can make,is attempting to open a "new-front" in the war against Israel,whether
in the Golan Heights,on the Lebanese-Israel border or down south in the Sinai
Peninsula,Hamas learnt the hard way in Gaza ,less than three years ago,not a good idea

start his turn of duty. To say I am proud of my children and the IDF is putting it mildly.

Recently, a group of senior-level ISIS commanders that escaped Iraq and northern Syria
have set up a camp in an enclave in the Syrian Golan near the Israeli border. Among the
ISIS terrorists is one of the organization's heads of recruitment.
The commanders made their way to the Golan through the desert with the assistance of
local tribesmen on the way. The group set up a training camp for approximately 300
local youths, from where they are operating an online propaganda network instead of
the one they abandoned when fleeing from the Syrian city of Raqqa.

Earlier this week, US-backed Syrian forces
began their last battle to liberate Raqqa,
which was ISIS’s capital city and one of its last
strongholds in Syria.
