The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have deployed additional armoured and artillery forces, including battle tanks, in the occupied Golan Heights, near the contact line with Syria.
The move was taken amid the developing advance of the Syrian Army against militant groups east of the Golan Heights.
It’s interesting that in its statement the IDF once again claimed that it is not involved in the war in Syria while in fact Israeli forces have repeatedly provided a direct and indirect support to militant groups fighting the government in Damascus. These actions were especially active in southern Syria.
“The IDF attaches great importance to maintaining the separation of forces agreement between Israel and Syria of 1974. In addition, the IDF will continue to insist on the principle of non-involvement in what is happening in Syria, alongside a policy of resolute response to the violation of Israel’s sovereignty and risk to its residents,” the IDF said in its statement. “Humanitarian assistance has been provided by Israel for years and continues today as needed.”
The IDF has also raised its alert level in the Golan Heights, according to Israel’s newspaper Haaretz.
“The Israel Defense Forces has raised its alert level in the Golan Heights in light of the recent escalation in the fighting in southern Syria between the Assad regime and rebel militias and the Syrian army’s increasing proximity to the Israeli border.
Israel isn’t expecting a direct confrontation with the Syrian army, but it is preparing for possibility of spillover effects from the regime’s attack, with Russian and Iranian assistance, on the Daraa region, which is just sixty kilometers from the Israeli border,” the newspaper said adding that the security cabinet will meet to discuss Israeli capabilities in the case uf a new war on July 1.
According to Syrian experts, the IDF may use military actions in southern Syria to justify new strikes on government forces’ targets inside Syria. If this is done, it will cause a new round of confrontation in the smoldering Israeli-Syrian conflict.
The Golan Heights are Syria property, and will eventually be taken back from the Zionist warmongering thieves,its as simple as that.
everything in good time.
Golan heights is not a gift even entire Palestine is not a gift. How many tanks are there in Golan heights will be exploded by just three missiles with multiple warheads.
Its so easy to convert Israeli tanks into mobile crematories.
Go and do or perish, you penis!
Hezbollah ‘perished’ 124 israeli Merkavas in 2006. Some were turned over on their sides, others were turned into ovens. This is just simply FACT!
Are you nut?
There were damaged 40 tanks, 20 in battle. 8 by boobie traps and 12 by kornets. 20 out of 400. THIS IS FACT!
On the other hand Hetbollah lost the core fighters. From that war they have fear to attack IL.
Sorry G but you’re predictably reciting israeli propaganda figures: lessening the scandal of humiliation war defeat. Also, 3,000 hezb fighters repelled 35,000 idf supported by israeli air force and navy – not forgetting MASSIVE US emergency ammo aid some 10 days into the war: israel had fired SO MUCH and achieved so little in the first 10 days which had the US generals rightfully worried for israel’s bad fighting skills and strategy that led to their eventual defeat and UNCONDITIONAL retreat from Lebanese borders :DDD
And you’ve got it the other way round G: it’s israel who, since their defeat in Lebanon in 2006, DARES NOT touch Lebanon like that again, when it was ALWAYS in the habit of striking Lebanon before 2006. You could say that Hezbollah’s victory over israel in 2006 created a ‘balance of terror’ with israel. The hezb SMASHED the myth of israel’s fake invincibility and the rest, as they say is history.
O read our official analysis. Som hezbollah is nothing.
I see the facts have stumped you lol!
Hey smaug is that your second and new Saudi Hasbara troll profile, or is it that Zionist idiot Joe Dirt.
WTF are you smoking the same Kush they smoke in the IDF ,dude cutback and save some brain cells.
The Talmud says you are but a ?
But the damage Israel was taking caused Israel to retreat back into Israel.
Interesting that Israel, and the US can invade countries at will, and nobody seems to care, but if the Syria army entered Syrian Golan Heights, all the Americans and Jews would start foaming at the mouth?
IL did not want occupy territory. The goal was to destroy the infrustructure of hezbollah in South Lebanon. Goal fillfilleed, went home.
The ZioNazi entity lost that war and begged for a ceasefire, despite their ‘heroic’ destruction of infrastructure and 1100 Lebanese.
Russia has not taken responsibility for taking care of Syria. Russia is looking after Russia, and at the moment that coincides with the interests of Syria. Would Russia risk a nuclear war with the US to save Syria, I doubt it.
Not even the US would get involved in any overt conflict involving Syria and Israel so why would you even have the idiotic notion of a nuclear confrontation, just sounds like you are talking like a schoolyard instigator.
Just you won’t see any help of US going nuclear or openly sending thousands of troops. Learn that the days of AIPAC OATH HOLDERS is becoming a scarcity in the world.
I’ m sorry but you are wrong. If Russia shoots down the NATO airplane specially if it was over some other country (not Syria) than that is act of war. By article 5 of NATO convention all NATO countries are suppose to help that attacked NATO country .
In short we have WW3.
Just no legal parameters for NATO countries to be involved it would destroy any alliances formed as there is no requirement for defending abroad only locally. Start reading how NATO was formed and reasons behind it as no nation owes an obligation of defense in a country not aligned even goes for Turkey not a full member. They talked the crap out of a NATO plane being downed overseas been debated so it’s a definitive no in support, only the country was attacked is on their own. So US will not go into a battle they can’t win just fact as they have never won a conflict on their own.
If nuclear war start who will win? Definitely Russia.
Probably, but the US has huge stockpiles of gas and germ agents. And no matter who won, the casualties would be staggering. The only good thing about a nuclear war, is most climate change is caused by the number of humans on the planet. Reduce the human population by 90% and the earth would be a better place.
You are deluding yourself. Nobody will win because the entire planet will be destroyed.
Those that creates problems are evils they scare from deaths than those that confront them.
Russia has taken responsibility to HELP Syria against terrorists. Officially NATO is still not in that category….
Agree with you Sinbad – Russia will start WW3 only if Russian troupes are directly attacked and not because of Syria or Iran.
Also Russia wants to see that Sunni have their rights respected if possible. And that this war doesn’t become Iran’s-Shia victory only but victory against terrorism not against Sunni in general.
Russia urging strongly to international parties to stop supporting terrorists in Palestine and in Syria.
Israel & the US then !!?.
Lol, what does Israel think? That Assad is going to invade them? Or are they going to invade Syria in support of ISIS? Weird warmongering by Israel. They cry about a drone flying in Syria near the Golan yet deploy half their army on the border…..
It’s a 10,000 year old technique.
More proof if needed that the isolated ISIS pocket on the Israeli border is de facto part of the Israeli forces who are supplying and aiding the Saudi backed Wahabi monsters.
The only war now before the Israelis is one of deep and irreversible attrition.
While it would be ideal that Israel is countered by another nuclear force, there’s very little that could stop the leveling by conventional and nuclear arms of middle eastern capitals once it began.
The mad-brained European settlers can only see to their own, and every one else’s, destruction if they don’t choose peace.
They seem aware of this.
lol at these Clowns, The right to defend yourself..BS Grandpa, Against Truth-! ISISraHELL Will fall by the Might of Truth, Folks Already know these Impostors are not the Biblical Israelites. In time ppls are waking up to this truth, folks in My Country realize how our [USG] Is the Problem of all world Oppression https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f782a9d2edf8557989126f2fac7f0417976d091fad27941a16f1cdfc13c0f128.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c69ea376b5bfd40e29cef19f19bd9cb60ce78a5604458e80ea5b83b7311bd562.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/851639a7193960a8b25c794e6eafb7263811c5bcc855869de888773722c62e98.jpg
Fuck off Israeli shit stain.
Do not be afraid Jews! That “isolated ISIS pocket” called Israel will be last one to be resolved !!
Terrible mistake from israeli side,. They have no idea, that 2000 hezbollah fighters can destroy the whole IDF.
Dude, seriously? Cut the slander. Read about the Yom Kippur War.
Or read about how Saladin defeated the land thieves in 1187. Israel had a great victory once upon a time, but things change, those hard gnarly Jews that survived WWII are all dead, and today the Jewish army is made up of soft middle class Jews from other countries, who go to Israel to kill some Arabs for kicks. They would run like rabbits once the fighting started.
Old history, its about a correct of analysis, as your pathetic statement that your Saudi and gulf friends where at the cusp of victory in Yemen a few weeks ago. Your pathetic and don’t know shit about military matter or history you worthless Saudi Israeli mouth piece.
Mike, I’ve been ignoring you for weeks and your still ranting on about the same thing. This is legally considered harrassment.
Then take a lawyer and sue him instead of whining about it.
Pretty weak and lame as they had to ask for major backing by the 5 eyes so now come on be honest. US/British military advisers along with equipment being supplied even air support, just a color war none the less and not the first or last.
Oh they know, that’s why they keep running to Moscow for help from Mr Putin. How long do you think Putin makes Netanjupu sweat in the waiting room, before granting him an audience?
Define “involved in the war.” The IDF will not intervene in the Daraa offensive unless attacked themselves, so yes. There was an incident where the IAF came to the aid to a Druze town fighting the Rebels a few years ago. A Druze town that was still loyal to Assad. There was that independent war with Iran/Hezbollah but do we count these? I think that the IDF is neutral as to which regime controls the Damascus government, in that way they do not concern themselves with the bulk of the war.
Do you think the Israelis want the Syrians to try to take back the Golan just so the crisis in Syria will escalate so they can call for the US to intervene? I see alot of people say that Syria needs to take back the Golan.
There is no such thing as Israel, some European Jews stole some Arab land after WWII.
Oh, is that the same pragmatic delusion as China has about Taiwan? Israel exists whether or not anyone in particular likes it. Why bring this up?
Europeans stealing Arab land is not a new thing, the Franks did it, and the so called Israelis will suffer the same fate.
Exactly, that is why in 2006 they got whipped by Hezbollah so they begged for a ceasefire. So, instead of facing real opponents to chose to kill defenceless men, women, and children in the world’s largest concentration camp they created (Gaza), and in the West Bank.
Yes, when the Israelis couldn’t beat Hezbollah in battle, they started bombing civilians in Beirut, targeting schools and public spaces, to maximize the number of children killed. The Israelis are total scumbags, like their ISIS comrades in arms.
Its over hasbara scumbag.
Before Israel and its pet ape the USA started this war, the Syrian army was pretty hopeless. 7 years later, the Syrian army is a force to be reckoned with. The Israelis sowed the seeds of their own destruction, which seems to be a common theme by those who follow the Jewish faith. Greed always brings them undone, and then they complain for a hundred years that they get picked on. No wonder they can never find peace.
historically , a victorious army from a long war always bred better leaders and warriors due to the natural selection of competent officer/soldier in wartime , as opposed to peacetime promotion.
so let’s see :
SYRIA – Victorious after a long conflict againt a western equipped and trained foreign proxy army. – Military trained by Russia with Russian and Iranian Advisors in the field , learning to fight combined arms against enemy armor and enemy airpower (FUKUS & IAF). – Air Defense now become the best in the region , so much so that the overrated IAF do not dare to enter syrian airspace and only attack from outside syrian airspace. – Syrian tankers now adept at countering enemy ATGM and working in urban warzone which are deadly for tanks/armor. The rebuilt Syrian armor now consist of modern russian tanks which is impervious to western ATGM – Special Troops and Recon element trained by Russia now so numerous and highlly combat experienced in open and urban warfare.
ISRAEL – IDF experienced against unarmed civilians and knife wielding insurgents. – IAF experienced against enemy that have to air defense , only to be shocked when Syrian AD now rebuilt and modernized by russia – IDF armor have zero experience in warfare except against gaza civilians who lack armament to counter heavy tanks.
A highly experienced fighter who made his bones in brutal fights VS a fighter who always fight a weak opponent with ease..
it would be an easy win for Syria
The genocidal jews can ’employ’ all the weapons they want in occupied Golan, it won’t stop its liberation, nor will it stop the coming missile bombardment of tel aviv.
The smarter israeli jew, for self-preservation, should immediately give up their kleptomania, pack their suitcases already and abandon the immoral jewish colony in the Levant.
