New jihadi threat has Israel’s north border on alert

GOLAN HEIGHTS, Israel — Less than a month after a ceasefire with Hamas took effect, Israel faces another threat on its northern border.

In late August, the al Qaeda-linked group al-Nusra scored big gains against the Syrian army of President Bashar al-Assad. The fighting took place on Israel’s northern doorstep.

On an observation point overlooking the Israeli-Syrian border, CBN News heard explosions in the background and saw plumes of smoke, presumably coming from the fighting between al-Nusra and the Assad regime’s forces.
