An Israeli military unit has reportedly sneaked inside a bordering area near Syria’s northern borders, Israeli Channel 2 reported.
The unit, called “Eagle” which is part of the Israeli elite intelligence force, infiltrated for some 500 into the south of Syrian territories for gathering intelligence info.
The exact location where the infiltration took place hasn’t been released for security considerations.
A video published by Channel 2 showed reporter Dani Kashmaru accompanying the soldiers in a night mission.
According to the reporter, similar operations have been carried out several times in the past, stating that he, along with the Israeli soldiers, ‘could hear and see everything.’
The report disclosed that the elite unit made use of advanced and sophisticated eavesdropping devices to monitor the battles fought between the Syrian Army and hardline groups in the area.
Israel has been providing logistic support and medical assistance to opposition forces – including Jabhet al-Nusra terror organization – fighting President Bashar Assad.
Israeli warplanes have repeatedly targeted Syrian Army positions under the pretext of preventing sophisticated weapons from reaching the Lebanese Hezbollah group.
