  • Syria’s Iranization Becoming Real Strategic Threat for Israel – Maj.-Gen. (res.) Israel Ziv
    The situation in Syria – where Iran is taking over the reins – is becoming a strategic threat to Israel. Not a single military decision is implemented without the Iranians, who no longer trust Hizbullah, whose performance so far has produced insufficient achievements. Revolutionary Guards commanders have taken command of the Golan Heights front down to the southern city of Daraa. Over 10,000 Shiite volunteers from Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan have been sent to Syria to fill the ranks.
    Israel is watching the Iranization taking place about 10 km. from its border with great concern as Iran takes the place of Syria. If Iran succeeds in its plan to nationalize the Golan and gain control of the Damascus basin, Israel will wake up to a new regional reality which will be much more complicated than Hizbullah – a direct and broad Iranian front which Israel has yet to experience. The writer served as head of the Operations Directorate branch in the IDF General Staff. (Ynet News)
