The Syrian government has reportedly deployed battle tanks and artillery guns preparing to take back the militant-held parts of Syria and the Golan Heights, the Israeli media says.
The Haaretz daily linked the alleged activity of the Syrian government with the recent reports that US forces may withdraw from Syria and has claimed that Israel will complain over the situation to the US.
The daily added that Hezbollah has allegedly established a Golan regional command center claiming that a hundred of Hezbollah operatives and a thousand other local residents linked to the movement operate in southern Syria.
The Israeli leadership sees militant groups, even the ISIS-linked Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, operating in the area as a useful tool in its plan to establish a buffer zone near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. So, any Syrian efforts aimed at wiping out these militant groups or even a possibility of such efforts are a cause of the constant Israeli concern.
