Along the northern border, Israel is on high alert to face two threats. Syria has been building up its military power, buying new weapons and training more than in the past. Israel has sent calming messages to Damascus and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has declared that Israel's big civil defense exercise does not pose a threat to anyone. However, IsraCast reports that it's a different story with Hezbollah which has vowed to launch a bloody attack on the Jewish state.

For the first time, an authoritative Israeli source has revealed how the Israeli defense forces conduct the targeted killing of Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip who deliberately rocket Israeli towns and villages. Prof. Asa Kasher has told IsraCast that Israeli security and political echelons carry out a complex process to limit Palestinian collateral damage in tracking down terrorists. Prof. Kasher, who formulated the IDF code of ethics, was speaking during a seminar at the Jerusalem center for ethics at Mishkenot Shaananim.
