IDF Combat Intelligence: Keeping Watch on the Enemy along the Syrian Border

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - IDF combat intelligence company commander Cpt. Lihi Moshe said, "We spend hours in the field, working 24/7, day and night, to thwart the enemy." Iran has increased its influence in the Syrian Army. Hizbullah has increased its presence on the Golan Heights with over 60 bases, including near the demilitarized buffer zone. "We are continuing to see Hizbullah continue to entrench itself in southern Syria," she said. Sgt. Anog Zinger grew up on stories about the IDF, as her father was left disabled from his combat service. "Going into combat gave my father a feeling that he was finishing his service through me," she said. "The shifts are long and it's hard to be in the field for days alone with no phone or showers or bed. We get to the most difficult place mentally, the place farthest from our homes and comfort zone, but we learn to deal with it." Sgt. Issy Lyons serves in a specialized drone team, conducting reconnaissance over enemy forces. She says, "There's been a lot of times that we are pushing our limits. We practice a lot to make sure that we are the best that we can be. When there is a technological issue, we work together as a team to fix the problem."
