Israeli soldiers from the Golani Brigade take part in a military training exercise in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights near the border with Syria on September 1, 2013. The Israeli cabinet authorised on August 28 a partial call-up of army reservists amid growing expectations of a foreign military strike on neighbouring Syria, army radio reported. The unspecified number of troops are attached to units stationed in the north of the country, which borders both Lebanon and the Golan Heights.
