Israel Is Concerned Over Syrian Army Plans To Wipe Out Militant Groups Of Southern Syria - Media

Illustrative image

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.

      Of course it is. These terror groups are Israeli pets and cared for and fed by Israel. They will be quite sad to see their pets run over by the SAA.

    If they stop supporting them they are gonag get murdered by terrorists who want to kill some Jew but the weapons and money keep them away.

    An SAA offensive on the border will positively bring SAA and IDF far to close for confort. Any misunderstanding could result in a mini war.

    The effects of the last pacification campaign against Hezbollah may be wearing off. This might escalate and there is no doubt that there are intrigues in souther Syria between these many factions.

    • ruca

      You mean on the Heights border? Syrian territory?

      • Smaug

        You knew what I meant. The line of control, the frontier that if crossed can be considered an declaration of war. THE BORDER.

    • Rodger

      The Syrian ‘civil’ war started very shortly before a deal on the Golan could be officially signed….. Just coincidence I guess…..Or maybe Obama pushed too hard for peace.
      “The onset of the rebellion against Bashar Assad in January 2011 interrupted intense negotiations between the Syrian president and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which the latter agreed to a full Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights in exchange for a peace agreement, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday.”

    There is no peace for Israel until it returns the stolen Syrian Golan Heights to its rightful and legal owner, the people of Syria.

    • jerry hamilton

      Israel do not want peace. They want money.

      • northerntruthseeker .

        No, they want TERRITORY… And at the expense of their neighbours…

        It is all part of the sick Greater Israeli project…

        • jerry hamilton

          I would like to tell you what they really want but I may get thrown off the forum.

            To kill the Goyim ?

          • jerry hamilton

            No. I think the Bolsheviks killed enough Christians to satisfy them for a while.
            They want us goyim to work hard and give them our money.
            Something utility companies do very well.
            Are you aware that electricity, gas and water rates are something that is crippling many low paid folk.
            The jewish backed government simply allow them to keep making record profits.

    Attention you Jew freaks: Syria is still a SOVEREIGN nation and has every right to do what it must within its own borders….

    Therefore, fuck off and mind your own business… Any action against Syria in their territory could be justified as an invasion and an act of aggression by you Jewish assholes….

    • wwinsti

      Israhell spent good money nursing Isis/Nursa casualties back to health, equipping them with weapons and training, bribing/extorting officials at the UN/US etc. It is only natural that they would seek a return on their investment.

      Using proxies against real armies or else they might get their asses whipped in a ground war

  • Joe

    Well this is stupid really. Israel’s concern is the last Syria has to worry about.

    Any decent country including Israel surely does not want terrorists in the country . Moreover Israel is an enemy of Syria having killed Syrian soldiers, such concerns hardly matters to Syria.

    Syria should put more SAMs in Southern Syria to prevent rogue nations attacking them.

    God’s speed that Syria will be one again and free from terrorists .
    …surely Golan heights will be taken back sooner or later (more like later ).

    • Kolo

      Since when was Israhell decent?

    This is so easy.

      That simple?
      And what about Palestine?

    Israhell…every Cause for your Concern is absolutely Magnificent…This Golan Heights will be the Cherry on the Pie….save the best for last… Go Crush’m Headchoppers SAA…Victory..!

    The oligarchs of the British Empire have had their eye on Syria since the early 1900s. Their puppet state, Israel, is only doing the dirty work – and by that, I don’t mean to legitimize the absolutely degenerate Zionist State.

    • “The only prospect that holds hope for us is the carving up of Syria… It is our task to prepare for that prospect. All else is a purposeless waste of time.” — Zionist militant Zeév Jabotinsky, From “We and Turkey” in Di Tribune, November 30, 1915

    • “We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Muslim regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan, and Syria will fall to us.” — David Ben-Gurion, From “Ben-Gurion, A Biography” by Michael Ben-Zohar, May 1948

    • “It is obvious that the above military assumptions, and the whole plan too, depend also on the Arabs continuing to be even more divided than they are now, and on the lack of any truly mass movement among them… Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking Iraq up into denominations as in Syria and Lebanon… Syria will fall apart.” — Oded Yinon, 1982. From “The Zionist Plan for the Middle East”

    • “Regime change is, of course, our goal both in Lebanon and Syria.

  • John Mason

    Starting to get hotter in Syria with the French now involved and the SAA going to have a serious look into freeing the Golan Heights. UN as usual is numbified, existing in another realm.

    • Ivan Freely

      Come on John, the UN isn’t a government. IMO, the French have always been there. The difference is that the spotlight has been directed in their direction.

    • velociraptor

      the SAA going to have a serious look into freeing the Golan Heights

      HA
      HA

        You retarded?

        • Sinbad2

          Seems like it.

        • velociraptor

          Better you are. SAA would be happy, if could defeat kurds. It is not looking in direction of IL. And until 2050 sure will not. 99%, that syria will be divided into 3-4 parts. And you are murmling about Golan. :DDDD

          So, i am on side of SAA, but i accept the reality and lough on ypur theories.

            Yep, a retard without doubt….

          it’s what you called easy side income..! shit..! go get some decent job where you can earned more instead of few shekels..!

    • Sinbad2

      The good thing about French troops, is you can just kill them, and not worry about the US nuking Syria.

      • Kolo

        The good thing about French troops is they are bigger pussies than the jewish ones

      • nshah

        And the bad things about them is.. even as peacekeepers.. they sodomized children.. lol..!

    • nshah

      yeah.. that useless and incompetent body called UN..

  • Ronald

    Syria is not crazy enough to go for the Golan Heights, with the US, France and Turkey in their northern states. Those ISIS are the group they are planning to launch an attack on Damascus with.

    • You can call me Al

      But the Israelis expanded the Golan heights, similar to turkey did with an exclusion zone – that is what they are attacking or will attack and kill the terrorists. the Golan heights can come later.

      • Ronald

        You are absolutely right, that so called “exclusion zone” is full of ISIS and they must be wiped out. The Israelis are simply hoping to keep it, and use it as a launch pad for an attack on Damascus.

  • gustavo

    Syria has to do this,…. independently of Israel concern about their children.

    Gosh. I hope assads boys planned for more than a victory parade in front of the israeli occupation forces. I suspect itll attract more airstrikes.

  • Brad Isherwood

    During the 2006 Lebanon war….Israel TV showed their mechanized at road junctions near south Lebanon border.
    Hezbollah using maps to locate the TV image road signs/junctions were able to get long range rockets to hit in near proximity.
    IDF lost troops standing around waiting for ride up your the war.
    Today Syria has some* Russian, Iranian counter battery radars with several years now team operator
    Experience.
    Hopefully IRGC has given Hezbollah their portable CFBat radar ,
    Hopefully it’s able to network artillery vs the range of long range mortars.

    Israel parked overconfident on Stolen Golan = a shit kicking if SAA and Hezbollah have the Resolve.
    Israel deserves getting busted up like 2006 again : )

    • Sinbad2

      The IDF is mostly made up of lazy middle class American Jews who want to play soldier, and kill some kids with impunity. Hezbollah is a well trained army, most Israelis who invade Lebanon, will die in Lebanon.

      • Brad Isherwood

        Ya….Helicopter gunship and or Merkava sabot round into children in a field

        Gaza has some weapons but nothing with distance accuracy.
        They might have a few ATGM. ..which requires IDF roll up on them.
        Gaza have Counter fire battery radar with even long range mortar = IDF Funeral Sunday .

        The Palestinians of West Bank are disappointment.
        The rumors their leaders are bought off by Zionist is true.
        Maybe soon a Coup and rid of the traitors.
        Next is platform shoe midget King of Jordan.
        These Palestinians are also Cuckold trash.

        Israel facing ATGM,Mortars,sappers from Jordan would be absolutely terror moment the god damned Jews deserve.

        Arab Insurgency is weak…
        The people’s are Cuckold.
        If they United against Israel..
        It’s @$&% ! Over…..Jews are going Sampson option before over run : )

        Sisi of Egypt is also slurp NWO/Empire…

        Iran realizes they are nearly last man standing.

        • Sinbad2

          “The rumors their leaders are bought off by Zionist is true.”
          Nothing changes, the Jews bought Judas, corrupting people is their art, and they are very accomplished at their art.

    What! You cant kill the moderates terrorists in their own country. I am sure Israel would prefer terrorists in Syria, which is why they arm them. Not sure this is news or worthy of an article.

  • nshah

    hahaha.. I love this news..! The so called exceptional are shitting in their diapers.. especially when Hezbollah is being mentioned, as they know their not confronting/dealings with women & children.. lol..!

    Shelter From the Storm: the Tunnels of Eastern Ghouta

    by ROBERT FISK FacebookTwitterGoogle+RedditEmail

    All battles and bombardments share their secrets one by one. Eastern Ghouta is no different. Why the sudden, savage bombardment of these Syrian towns and villages more than three weeks ago? Why the wasteland of homes and streets—and how did so many of the civilians survive along with hundreds of Islamist gunmen?

    You can do no better than start your enquiry in a front line dug-out near Arbeen, on the old and now war-smashed international highway between Damascus and Aleppo. It is protected by oil barrels of solid concrete, an iron roof, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, a couple of rifles and a rusting motor-bike, presumably to carry messages when the lines are cut. “Twenty mortars a day,” one of the Syrian soldiers says, rolling his eyes.

    And now it is over; he hopes. But – aside from the oil lamps and the cups of ‘mutta’ tea (an outrageous non-alcoholic brew originating from Argentine plants which the Syrian army drinks by the pint) – what catches your attention is the absence of a single trench.

    The soldiers sport beards like their French ‘poilu’ ancestors in the Great War a hundred years ago. But they dig no trenches. Not a single communications alleyway winds through the dirt and mud on either side of the dug-out to give the running messenger cover from those mortars. Maybe the motorbike increased their chances. But no one has ever provided me with a serious explanation of why the lattice of front-line trenches and rear trenches and revetments dug so deeply a century ago – deeper by the Brits than by the French, deeper still by the Germans – has never caught on in Syria.

    Thus many of these Syrian soldiers were shocked to find how safe their enemies were. Here is the account of an eyewitness who entered the ruins after the first Syrian assault units burst through the front lines towards Douma. “I have never seen so many tunnels. They had built tunnels everywhere. They were deep and they ran beneath shops and mosques and hospitals and homes and apartment blocks and roads and fields. I went into one with full electric lighting, the lamps strung out for hundreds of yards. I walked half a mile through it. They were safe there. So were the civilians who hid in the same tunnels.”

    These great stoneworks – for they were carved through the living rock, supposedly by Palestinians on loan from Hamas, men who had spent their years hacking tunnels between Gaza and the Egyptian desert to the south – have become a familiar part of the Syrian war. I have walked through them in Homs, where the makers carved their names on the walls like Victorian railway builders, and in eastern Aleppo. These tunnels somehow carry inside them the necrology of ideas, the ideological martyrs’ cemetery of their makers’minds. They are deep and dank and glisten with moisture. But they are safe.

    So here comes the latest little secret of the Ghouta war. The Syrian aircraft so often blamed for the indiscriminate nature of a bombing campaign which, according to many reports, has killed 1,500 civilians in eastern Ghouta, were old. But the Russian aircraft were also old Sukhoi 24s, some of them upgraded but others inferior to the Sukhois currently sold by Moscow to the government of Belarus. And this from a Russian source – outside Syria, but all too familiar with Russian military operations inside the country – who knows about the trajectory of rockets: “The bombs we used in Ghouta were not “smart” bombs with full computer guidance. Maybe some. But most had a variable of 50 metres off target.” In other words, you can forget the old claim of “pin-point” accuracy which western armies also like to adopt. These Russian bombs launched against eastern Ghouta had a spread pattern of 150 feet each side of what the pilots were aiming at; which means a house instead of an anti-aircraft gun. Or one house rather than another house. And anyone inside.

    But these blockbusters, it seems, couldn’t bust any blocks. The tunnels were never breached. That’s why they were built. They were bomb-proof. And thus the Russians and Syrians fired more and more bombs to break them. The Islamist groups in Ghouta did not have barracks or dug-outs – not in the traditional sense, at least – for they lived in the tunnels, ate in the tunnels, fought, just briefly, in the daylight outside the tunnels, and then dragged their mortars back inside. A fighter wishes to pray: he can take the tunnel to the mosque. He needs surgery? He can be taken between those glistening walls to the hospital. He needs to move to a new battlefront; he takes a mile or two walk across town. Underground.

    When the Syrian forces of the ‘Nimr’ units – those soldiers commanded by Brigadier General Suheil al-Hassan, ‘The Tiger’ – advanced, they came across civilians with their hands up. A man who watched the helmet camera videotapes of these soldiers spoke to me of what he saw. “One man came out and they shouted at him to stop – and to raise his shirt to show he didn’t have a suicide bomb. But he didn’t stop. He kept on walking. They shouted again and started firing at the ground and the walls around him. Then he stopped and understood and raised his shirt. A woman came out of one house with her hands up, but the soldiers were then ambushed by armed men and shouted at her to return to her basement.”

    The Syrians paid for their advance. In one short battle, at least 20 of them were killed. During another, five men emerged from the ruins, all dressed in Syrian army uniform and carrying weapons, well shaved, saying they were “coming across” to the Syrian lines. Several Syrian soldiers captured years ago were still held hostage by Islamists in underground cells. But the ‘Nimr’ units, while they knew the uniforms were real, looked closely at the faces of the men wearing them. “They could see they were newly shaved, that they weren’t so tanned on their chins as on the rest of their faces, and they realised they were Jaish al-Islam men dressed in Syrian uniform who had just removed their beards,” the eyewitness added bleakly. “They killed them all.”

    So why the ferocity of the bombardment? That Russian source – no politician but certainly, I suspect, a Putin supporter – believes to this day that the Russian president wanted to end the Syrian war, especially the Ghouta conflict, before his election. But this proved impossible. Syria doesn’t fit the familiar ‘quagmire’ of Vietnam legend; it is a vast terrain of captured and recaptured and re-recaptured towns and villages, which moves with the power of the antagonists. The Russians can pick and choose their battles. This increases mobility. But it doesn’t create the exit home.

    There are streets in Ghouta, incredibly enough, whose buildings are still standing relatively unscathed. They were spared during the bombardment because their inhabitants said – by mobile phone — they wanted to stay in their homes and would not resist the Syrian army. Thousands of Syrians in Ghouta have thus not joined the refugee buses nor – even if they were related to the Islamists – accompanied the women and children travelling with their jihadi menfolk to Idlib. They are still living at home.

    You might not think this, staring over the miles of wreckage, grey, powdered, roof upon pancaked roof. But then you wouldn’t imagine the tunnels either. The Syrians were amazed at them. So were the Moscow military men guarding the ‘Russian Centre for Reconciliation’ inside Ghouta. That’s where the convoys are put together on paper and lists and buses numbered for evacuation, where the Islamist groups bargain for freedom with or without weapons, for ‘reconciliation’ or for a temporary Russian presence in their streets – even for local authorities run by Islamist political groups instead of by armed men. The Syrians have spotted the trick in this one, of course. Try to take back the land from the ‘local authorities’ and the Islamists will spring mushroom-like from the ground again, along with their weapons. And perhaps from undiscovered tunnels.
