The IDF on Tuesday said troops discovered several bombs planted on the Israeli side of the Israel-Syria border and warned the Syrian government about the incident.

“We just exposed a number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) near the Israeli side of the Alpha Line on the southern Golan Heights,” the IDF tweeted. “We hold the Syrian regime responsible for all events in Syria and will not tolerate any violation of our sovereignty.”

The Alpha Line is located in the 235-square-kilometer demilitarized buffer zone between Israel and Syria that is monitored by a special United Nations peacekeeping force. It is the west boundary of the zone that is about 80 kilometers (48 miles) long and ranges in width from half a kilometer to 10 kilometers. No Syrian forces are allowed past the Bravo line, on the eastern side of the zone.

The explosives were neutralized by combat engineers who had just wrapped up a training exercise simulating combat on the northern front, i24 News reported.
