On February 20, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced that a suspect who had been detained after crossing from Syria into the occupied Golan Heights last month was involved in efforts by the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group to gather intelligence.
The military said that the suspect, Ghaith Abdullah, was part of the so-called “Golan File,” or “Project Golan,” a network of armed cells that Hezbollah is allegedly building in Syria’ southern region to gather intelligence and even launch attacks against Israel.
Abdullah was captured by troops from the IDF’s Unit 621 “Egoz” alongside another man, who was not apparently involved in Hezbollah’s efforts, near the Syrian village of al-Asbah on January 27.
“During the questioning, Ghaith [Abdullah] provided information regarding additional terrorist operatives that promote terrorist activities in the area of the border,” the IDF said in a statement.
According to the statement, Abdullah was a squad commander involved in advancing attacks against Israel. The IDF named another operative in his squad, the leader of another squad, and a Syrian man involved in recruiting new members.
“The IDF will not tolerate any terrorist activity from southern Syria and will maintain the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” it added.
To counter the alleged “Golan File” plot, Israel stepped up its military activities along the Goan front significantly in the last few years.
The IDF strikes targets, like observation posts, conduct special ground operations against others and demolish fortifications on the Syrian-held side of the Golan and within the United Nation-monitored buffer zone on a regular basis to prevent Hezbollah and other Iran-allied armed factions from entrenching themselves on the front.
Hasbara noise… Israel beats up innocent people and claims they found the devil on a daily basis. Why is SF regurgitating IDF fake news? Who does SF really serve? I give this comment less time to survive posting, than a Ukrainian tank crew on assault…
I see your post.
Since when did SF see Hezbollah as a terrorist group?
Has Southfront been infiltrated?
Hezbollah is not terrorist but I prefer Kataeb.
SF is sweatin’ to the oldies… In the 80s and 90s the rave was the word “Terror” (in Israelianish it’s “Teghogh”), if you wished to have in dollars as many times NBC, CBS, ABC… said the word “Terror” on a daily basis you’d be richer than today’s Jeff Bezos. You’d be even richer if you used “Teghogh” or “BenYamin” instead of Benjamin… SF’s “Keep SF alive” is obviously struggling so someone must have suggested to sprinkle a dash of “Teghogh” in their article to keep SF alive. Who knows… BTW, do this, every time Zelenskyy is mad with his neighbors he comes up with a speech, read every one of these speeches and see how many time he uses the “T” word in them. For some reason these people (what do you mean “people”?!) climax on uttering “T” word.
How about those blacked out contracts protecting the eugenicist boorla and his cohorts.. Perpetual war to distract the israelis from the real enemy depopulating their country: their own leaders.
