We told you about Israel's response to the Islamic State terrorist group's attempted attack and presence on the Israeli-Syrian border. Now, The Jerusalem Post's Gil Hoffman reports that PM Netanyahu has spoken out, saying ISIS will not be allowed to open "a front of terror" in the Holy Land:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Islamic State and other groups in Syria Monday that Israel would have a zero tolerance policy for attacks across its border.

Speaking to the Likud faction, he said that over the past few days there were multiple attempts to attack the IDF on the border with Syria.

He said Israel responded with great force and "its enemies" have paid a heavy price.

"We are paying close attention to developments and continuing with determination to implement the policy that I establish: We will not tolerate even isolated fire and we will respond forcefully and attack our enemies when necessary before they succeed in attacking us. We will not permit radical Islam or any other hostile entity to open a front of terror against us on the Golan..."

Later Monday, Defense Minister Liberman also threatened ISIS in a meeting of his Yisrael Beytenu faction.

He said that Israel did not have to coordinate its response to attacks in Syria with Russia, and that even though Israel normally holds Syria responsible for attack from its soil, this time it was clear that the perpetrators were from ISIS.

"Israel is not seeking adventure, but we will respond to any attack wherever it comes from with great force," he said.
