Analysis: Israel is not facing a Druze refugee crisis, but it is ready for one

Despite the rumors that have circulated in recent days of an imminent Druze refugee crisis on Israel’s borders, senior IDF sources serving under the Northern Command issued assurances on Wednesday, saying that they see no signs of that happening in the near future.

Nevertheless, the IDF is prepared for the eventuality of a scenario involving Syrian civilian refugees massing on Israel’s borders to flee brutal jihadist organizations that mercilessly hunt down and murder minorities.

The Syrian-Druze village of Khader, just east of Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights, is loyal to the Assad regime, and the pro-regime military has a base there, as does Hezbollah.
