GOC northern command declares area near border with Syria closed military zone

GOC of the northern command Yair Golan decided on Wednesday to declare the area from Kibbutz Dafna in the upper Galilee to the Druze town of Mas’ade in the northern Golan Heights a closed military zone.

The area includes Kibbutz Dan, the village of Ghajar, the Banias, Fort Nimrod, Neve Ativ, Majdal Shams and the Hermon.

The announcement came after a day of fire exchange between IDF forces and Hezbollah militants operating in southern Lebanon. Two IDF soldiers were killed after Hezbollah launched an anti-tank missile at an IDF convoy near the border with Lebanon and a Spanish UNIFIL peacemaker was killed in southern Lebanon during the exchanges of fire.
