This is why ISIS are ‘terrified’ of Israeli soldiers but do not fear ‘poorly trained’ Brits or Americans… as jihadis are blasted by IDF troops for the first time

ISIS militants’ first clash with their most dreaded enemy ended in the jihadists being wiped out.

Four terrorists were killed after opening fire on an Israel Defense Force patrol on the Israeli-controlled section of the Golan Heights on Sunday.

“We will not let Daesh elements or other hostile elements use the cover of the war in Syria to establish themselves next to our borders”, Israel’s hardened PM Benjamin Netanyahu said.

Israel is the only country in the world that Islamic State thugs in Syria and Iraq truly fear, according to the only Western journalist to have returned after touring through ISIS territory.

While openly taunting and attacking targets in Britain, the US, France, Germany and beyond, the failed jihadist assault on Israel is the first for the warped group.

That is because even the twisted Islamists are able to recognise that Israeli troops are among the most battle-hardened in the world.

And because of this, Israel is not included in ISIS’s “first stage” of colonisation in the Middle East, German reporter Jürgen Todenhöfer revealed after ten days in the so-called Caliphate last year.

“They think they can defeat US and UK ground troops, who they say they have no experience in city guerrilla or terrorist strategies”, he told the Jewish News.

“But they know the Israelis are very tough as far as fighting against guerrillas and terrorists.”

Israel has one of the best funded militaries in the world, capable of providing each solder with top equipment and weaponry.

In a country of only 8 million people, as much as $18BILLION is spent on defence each year — 5.4 per cent of the nation’s GDP — according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

It is in the top 20 most technologically advanced militaries in the world according to a Business Insider poll.

Israel’s intelligence gathering capabilities are second to none thanks to its ruthless Mossad spy agency keeping strategists one step ahead.

And it is not just physical capabilities such as these that make Israel too daunting an enemy for ISIS to fully engage.

Israeli troops use the unofficial motto En Brera, which translates to “No Alternative” — signifying their mental fortitude in the face of attack.

Military prowess is also ingrained in the culture of the besieged state surrounded by hostile nations.

Compulsory conscription for over-18s means skillful soldiering is not good enough to stand out — the top soldiers are expected to be head and shoulders above the rest.

ISIS militants Todenhöfer met claimed not to be scared of British or American soldiers but believed the IDF were the only “real danger”.
