Calming Syria

Jerusalem Post: IDF moves large-scale training forces from Golan Heights to South

The IDF has decided that war with Syria is unlikely and is moving training forces out of the Golan Heights after months of cross-border tension, security officials said Wednesday.

The decision followed months of growing tensions along the frontier and concerns that the escalation could result in war. Over the summer, media reports of an impending war alternated with announcements by Syrian and Israeli leaders that they had no interest in hostilities.

Hopefully a sign of progress, and not a sign of weakness to the Syrians
