BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The head of the Israeli Army’s Operations Department, General Aaron Hilweh, said that Israel’s secret activities in Syria are continuing and have been largely successful in working to get the Iranians out of them.

In a lengthy interview with Walla News Agency on Wednesday, Hilweh claimed, “President Bashar al-Assad understands, or has begun to understand, that the Iranians who came to assist him in the war against ISIS in order to save him, are themselves today who pose a danger to continuing his rule, especially since they pose a major threat to his ability to rebuild Syria.”

On the possibility of an escalation between Israel and Lebanon, Hilweh said: “Nasrallah is well aware of the price that Hezbollah and Lebanon will pay as a result of any escalation with the Israeli army,” claiming that the transfer of combat weapons from Syria to Lebanon continues, and the Iranian position in Syria has not disappeared.”

Hilweh explained that the Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, understood very well that Israel would not allow him to escalate, and that the Israeli army would not allow the presence of precise missiles.

Hilweh added that “Nasrallah is not stupid, as he is well aware of our intelligence capabilities and the strength of the Israeli Army and military intelligence [safety],” noting that Israeli military activity in Syria has not diminished in the recent period.

The attacks against Syria bij de IAF started in 2017 when it was clear the Syrian government won the war. It’s just the zionist way of taking revenge. And the words of this war criminal are just making empty threats.
It should be remarked nobody in the EU is protesting these acts of war. But that’s no surprise as Israel calls the sots on this in Brussels.

Iran must proceed with a plan to quickly advanced its national and international interests and security by immediately sending 100,000 troops into Syria, meaning 10 divisions of 10,000 troops each or five divisions of 20,000 troops each. There should be 1 or 2 tank divisions, 1 or 2 paratrooper divisions, 1 or 2 missile divisions (armed with all kinds of missiles that have medium and long ranges, preferably cruise missiles, preferably missiles with multiple warheads, with maximum explosive capacity), including anti-tank missiles and anti-ship missiles and anti-submarine missiles and surface-to-surface missiles), 1 to 2 rocket and artillery divisions, 1 to… Read more »

Nope : the best way Iran can improve its security s by hanging the mullahs and having Reza-Shah in charge. Oh, BTW, Iran is nowhere near to have the economics to sustain this, thanks to the Khamenei’s mafia who made the country poor. Palestine is Jordan and is occupied by Arabs (Midians) while locals are Nabateans… Judea-Samaria is Israel, not Palestine, therefore, Bethlehem or Jericho are occupied by Jordans aka Palestinians… If you want the crazy mullahs to attack Israel the massive way, Iran will become a gigantic radioactive parking lot within 6 minutes. Do you fücking understand what a… Read more »
