The article is devoted to the reaction of Israeli State to the fast changing situation in the Middle East and growing threats from radical Islamic groupings, first of all “Islamic State” – IS, which concentrated their forces on Syria-Israel border. Further destabilization of the situation in occupied territories, mainly due the penetration of IS in the Gaza Strip, is a real menace to the State of Israel. Israeli leadership attempts to work out practical measures to fight not only against radical Sunni Islamic groupings, such as IS, “al-Qaeda”, and “Dzhabhat en-Nusra”, but also against Shia pro-Iranian wing “Hezbollah”, threatening Israeli border from Lebanon, are considered by the author.
