I'm sure that alert and video are the lead story in Israel this morning regarding Hezbollah's (Iran's) drive to establish fighting positions on the Golan from which to attack Israel. We also now have open confirmation from Israel about the recent IAF strikes on Quneitra, Hader (Khader) and Erneh on the Syrian Golan. No doubt there will be a lot more strikes coming in the days ahead, and that quickly takes us to the next SITREP.
11 March 2019: Syria has now twice declared its intention to attack Israel and recover the Golan. The first declaration was to the U.N. three days ago and the second to the world at-large. Behind Bashar al-Assad's government pushing for this is the apocalyptic regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This is but one side of the proverbial coin.
The other side of that coin is the now persistent RUMINT (Rumor Intelligence) that the United States will recognize the Golan as sovereign Israeli territory and do so prior to upcoming election in Israel on 9 April. It will be interesting to see if we get to the Israeli election without a major conflict erupting beforehand.
6 March 2019: As if on cue, what began as a continuous HAMAS nighttime assault against the security fence around Gaza and an ever increasing level of balloon-borne IEDs into southern Israel has transformed over the past 48 hours into a large scale engagement. The timing of this to take the focus off of the Golan has not been lost on anyone, so it is included here as part of the Psalm 83 war.
As of this evening a barrage of katyusha rockets was cut loose by HAMAS. Iron Dome intercepted them. Israel has responded with punishing airstrikes throughout Gaza from drones and fighter aircraft. Tremendous explosions make these strikes far different than the pin-pricks that have been so routine in the past several months. The new port area at Khan Younis is recieving at lot of IAF attention. IDF armor, Merkava tanks to be precise, are staring into Gaza from several locations (avenues of ingress should that order be given).

This system is specifically going to counter any and all Iranian ballistic missiles fired towards Israel. None will make it as the TPY-2 can "see" an object the size of a baseball hundreds of miles away. In fact, this radar can see many baseball size objects at the same time. An Iranian ballistic missile warhead would obviously be much larger than a baseball, so you get the point, TPY-2 sees anything and everything. TPY-2 then tracks, targets and fires the THAAD interceptor(s) which intercepts the target(s) by impacting at a speed of Mach 8 and a distance of about 93 miles from Israel. THAAD is a "hit to kill" high altitude air defense system. Now you know why Bibi and the US soldiers are smiling. Ayatollah checkmated.
3 March 2019: We begin Part IV of this series with a current Operational Intelligence (OPSINT) map from NZIV.net. This map serves as a companion to an also current ILTV report (video below) on the massing by IRGC-QF General Qassam Soleimani of Hezbollah and Iranian proxy forces on the Israeli Golan border. Solemani's intent is for these forces to invade and capture the Israeli Golan.
