there are currently 154 UNTSO military observers in israel, according to the IISS. more detail can possibly be found at:
i do not believe there is a military buildup occuring as you suggest due to the building of the fence, nor do i think there are any non-israeli bases
inside israel. some $100mil (1988 dollars) in US equipment is "prepositioned" in israel, which implies major US logistical presence, but no official
strategic military presence. in any case, these US forces are unlikely to take action in support of international law, both for political reasons and
because they are not tasked for peacekeeping operations.
