Israeli General: Islamic State Is Our Enemy, Intelligence Shared With Allies In Common Fight

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — A top Israeli general says the Islamic State group is “our enemy” and that Israel is sharing intelligence with allies battling the extremists despite remaining on the sidelines of Syria’s civil war.

Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon says that while Iran remains the greatest threat to Israel, the IS group is also an adversary.

Israel has kept its distance from the civil war on its northern doorstep, wary of appearing to side with any of the warring parties — nearly all of which are hostile to it.

But Alon, who heads the military’s operations branch, told reporters Wednesday that Israel is essentially part of the international coalition against IS and shares intelligence with its allies.
