The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have dropped leaflets over southern Syria, warning locals and security forces in the region against cooperating with Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
On May 10, leaflets dropped over the western countryside of Daraa warned the locals that Hezbollah is attempting to establish presence in the region. The leaflets included the photos of two alleged local operatives of the group, “Abu al-Majd Fahed” and “Abu Laith Cuba”.
“Hezbollah continues to exploit the Syrian people and to recruit locals from the region who are trying to build their lives. We are aware of and monitoring Hezbollah operatives in the Syrian villages,” the leaflets read.
More leaflets were dropped on May 16, this time over the countryside of al-Qunitra. The leaflets warned Syrian security forces against allowing Hezbollah operatives to move in the region and called on the government to end the group’s presence there.
The leaflets included photos of two key checkpoints located near the the towns of Khan Arnabeh and al-Asbah, a few kilometers away from the separation line with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
“We call on the Syrian regime to change its policy, we will tolerate the presence of Hezbollah or the movement of terrorists in the region,” the leaflets read.
The IDF claims that Hezbollah is working to establish a network of cells in southern Syria to launch attacks against Israel-occupied territory.
Israel began to escalate on the Golan Heights front after a limited multi-front confrontation last April that saw the launch of two salvos of rockets from southern Syria at the occupied territory. Tel Aviv held Damascus responsible for the rare attack.
Later on in the month, the IDF launched two waves of strikes with artillery and missiles against positions of the Syrian Arab Army in the countryside of al-Qunitra after dropping similar leaflets warning against Hezbollah presence near the separation line.
go to hell zionist fascist entity regime
not before hezbollah does.i need them to get rid of hezbollah because clearly leabense cant and wont do it alone.
there is no such thing as a muslim civilian. they are all combatants
hezbollah is half-fascist but there is a fascist group in the israeli government.
hezbollah’s half-fascist and all corrupt scumbag. just ask lebanon.
you’re an absolute idiot. israel sees hezbollah as an existential threat. they they will attack them wherever they find them. that means innocent syrians will be caught in the crossfire. get it now dumbo?
izrael pácha teroristické útoky na sýriu a ešte provokuje?
israeli terrorists are the last people to condemn such action, why? they are a terrorist and an apartheid nation, that targets and kills innocent civilians. how pathetic and cruel!
so if the peace treaty with israel is drawn up, only one side observes it?
hezbollah should accept gemayel
a most beautiful admission of the zionist regime, that they’re shitting their pants over hezbollah. of course, it’s “israel” that destroys everybody’s life in the region.
please, you’re clueless. take your dumb head out your stinky hole. you’re mouth-mouthfarting crap.
to my knowledge, hezbollah have never bombed syria so what is the isreali apartheid regime talking about? whilst the syrian people elsewhere are busy trying to rebuild their lives after the isreali apartheid regime bombed them out of it. the idf are probably right about cells forming. there are international cells forming too. the whole region/world has seen enough of the isreali apartheid regime.
maybe the isreali apartheid regime means that they will protect the syrian people whilst they rebuild their lives and property, just in time for the isreali apartheid regime to come and take it, like they have everywhere else in palestine and now syria. who’s next i wonder. jordan?.
no, ill stupido. they mean just what they say and what they have done for years. it is very simple: “help hezbollah and we’ll blow you away along with them” get it?
you have knowledge? it doesn’t look like it. you’re yapping clueless crap.
