Israel wants terrorists to control Syria border: Assad
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said that Israel aims to establish a terrorist-controlled area along the Golan border.
Assad warned that the Israeli regime attempts to create a buffer zone in Golan Heights as it did in southern Lebanon, According to Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar.
Assad also told an Argentinean newspaper a few months ago that Israel is assisting the militants fighting in Syria.
“Israel is directly supporting the terrorist groups in two ways,” he claimed. “Firstly it gives them logistical support, and it also tells them what sites to attack and how to attack them.”
The daily further reported that the “axis of resistance” is fighting in the area and decided to foil the Israeli plans.
In an interview with Beirut-based Al-Miyyadeen television on Monday, Bouthaina Shaaban, who serves as the political and media adviser to Syria’s Al-Assad, claimed that Israel was sending fighters to help the militants fighting to oust Assad.
The advisor also said that Israel is using weapon convoys as an excuse to strike in Syrian and Lebanese territories.
Nearly 1,600 wounded militants, fighting in Syria, have reportedly received treatment in Israeli hospitals.
In September, Syrian army troops confiscated Israeli-made missiles in the possession of foreign backed militants in the southern city of Dara’a.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. A very large number of the militants operating inside Syria are reportedly foreign nationals.
According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies, especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants operating inside Syria and are providing them with required military equipment.
