Syrian rebels call on Israel to bomb Hezbollah-Iran-Syria positions

From the Jerusalem Post


[ Editor’s Note:  You just can’t make this stuff up — ISIL wanting to be a forward air controller for Israeli Defense Force strikes in Syria’s Golan Heights.

The boots on the ground that the NeoCon airheads have been wanting to defeat ISIL have already been there — they are called the Syrian Army and Hezbollah. But Mad-Man McCain would rather use American servicemen as cannon fodder to take credit for “being the brains behind sending them in”.

But most older folks in the military are familiar with McCain’s debriefings in North Vietnam, when he gave up the US military’s flight packer routes, enabling the North Vietnamese to reposition their defenses to take down more planes. And John’s father, Admiral McCain, sold out the USS Liberty crew by torpedoing any real investigation, which let Israel off the hook with their accident cover story. Betrayal runs in the family.

The United Nations just passed a resolution going after aiders and abettors of the various Takfiris in the financing area who are getting, “a significant portion of the group’s income, alongside extortion, private foreign donations, human kidnapping ransoms and stolen money from the territory they control.”

The UN’s wording seems to allow Israel providing medical and other material support, and maybe even these airstrikes. If Israel is using ISIL as cannon fodder against Assad, gosh I wonder if they would want to use Americans the same way? Or might all their sockpuppets in Congress do a 180-degree turn and put economic sanctions on the Zios?

If Syria gets its southern regions cleared out of terrorists, the army can shift the majority of its forces north to wipe out ISIL vermin by sandwiching them between the Iraqi army that is squeezing them back toward Syria.

Jordan may even stop training new terrorists, whom they had been sending into southern Syria, aiding and abetting themselves for several years, and Syria never retaliated even once. What good sports they have been. By contrast, Jordan’s King Hussein loses one pilot and wants to destroy ISIL. Maybe if Syria had had a King, things would have gone better for themJim W. Dean ]



Israeli Druse in touch with Rebels tells ‘Post’: The Syrian opposition asked for me to relay a message to the Israeli Prime Minister that Israel should give Hezbollah and Iran another hard hit.

Syrian rebels, whose forces are fighting against a new offensive in the South by the axis of the Syrian Army, Hezbollah, and Iran, is calling on Israel to attack their positions.

An Israeli Druse who is in frequent contact with the Syrian opposition said that the warning came to alert the IDF, before the axis is able to take the Syrian Golan that borders Israel.

A Syrian rebel commander in the South vowed to wage guerrilla war against the Lebanese group Hezbollah and Syrian government forces, which have launched a major offensive against insurgents in the sensitive border region near Israel and Jordan.

The offensive that got under way this week is focused in an area south of Damascus that is the last notable foothold of the mainstream armed opposition to President Bashar Assad, who has consolidated control over much of western Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the war, says the push is being spearheaded by Hezbollah, and that government forces and allied militia have made significant progress.

Mendi Safadi, who served as former Likud deputy minister Ayoub Kara’s chief of staff, has independently met with members of the liberal and democratic Syrian opposition who oppose the Islamists and want friendly relations with Israel.

Safadi met a week and a half ago with Syrian rebel leaders in Bulgaria and has traveled in the region, met with activists, and relayed messages from them to the Prime Minister’s Office.

He was responsible for relaying the congratulatory letters from the Syrian opposition to then President-elect Reuven Rivlin.

Over the past few days there has been a heavy battle going on between the forces aided by Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah against the Syrian opposition, Safadi told The Jerusalem Post in an interview on Thursday.

The Syrian axis is “using all means” to achieve their objective of taking the area in southern Syria that borders Israel, he said. The rebels have succeeded in some areas, “but have been hit hard.”

The rebels have suffered many wounded over the past few days, which means that more are crossing into Israel for medical treatment. Around 2,000 Syrians have been treated in Israel, according to Safadi.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Gen. Muhammad Allahdadi was killed with a Hezbollah commander and the son of the group’s late military leader, Imad Mughniyeh, in an alleged Israeli attack last month on a Hezbollah convoy near the Israeli Golan Heights.

Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran and fought a 34-day war with Israel in 2006, said six of its members died in the strike.

After receiving this hard hit, “Hezbollah and Iran want to show that they can withstand it and still have motivation to fight,” argued Safadi.

“The Syrian opposition contacted me yesterday [Wednesday] in a Whatsapp message and asked for me to relay a message to the [Israeli] prime minister that Israel should give Hezbollah and Iran another hard hit to stop their progress,” reported Safadi.

The Free Syrian Army commander of a large unit in southern Syria, who did not want to be identified, claimed to Safadi that the Syrian allied forces intend to reach the Israeli border and use it to carry out terrorist attacks against the Jewish state.

“The commander relayed to me coordinates where Syrian and Hezbollah forces are located,” said Safadi, adding that he cannot reveal this information.

The Syrian government is getting a tremendous amount of support from Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia, and the rebels in the South are “simple people without a proper army or weapons.”

The Syrian Army said on Wednesday that territory including four hills and three towns had been secured from insurgents it identified as members of the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front. The mainstream rebels, known collectively as the Southern Front, are dismissive of Nusra’s role in the area.

The battle – the most serious effort to date by the state to take back the South – was mostly brought to a halt on Thursday by snow.

“The battle could be lengthy. It will be hit and run – this is the system we are going to use in battle,” said Abu Osama al-Jolani, a senior commander in the southern rebel alliance.

“We are not a state army defending borders… we operate a system of guerrilla warfare. As far as we are concerned, land is not important,” he added, speaking to Reuters via the Internet from an area near the Syrian- Jordanian border.

Jolani, who held the rank of major when he defected from the Syrian Army in 2011, said the attacking forces had sustained heavy losses and their gains were insignificant. He is now deputy commander of the “First Army,” formed from three smaller rebel groups in January.

Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Observatory, said four days of fighting had killed 19 combatants on the government side and 48 on the opposition side. He said the advances by Hezbollah and the government should not be underestimated.

The Syrian defense minister visited the front line on Thursday, Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV station reported.

The Southern Front rebel alliance includes groups that have received support from foreign states opposed to Assad. The support has included what the rebels describe as small amounts of military aid, including some US-made anti-tank missiles.

With much of the North and East held by jihadist groups, including the powerful Islamic State, the southern rebels see themselves as the last bastion of the revolt against Assad that erupted in 2011 before descending into civil war.

The opposition complains that while the Syrian government has received vital military support from Assad’s allies, including Hezbollah and Iran, Arab and Western states that want to see Assad gone have failed to do the same.

A Lebanese columnist close to Hezbollah wrote on Wednesday that the decision to launch the southern offensive had been taken several weeks ago at the highest levels of the “Resistance Axis” – a reference to Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah.

An Israeli official briefed on intelligence said the current offensive “involves Hezbollah more heavily than in previous operations.”

“There are hundreds of their fighters involved,” said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Jolani said the Syrian Army is playing no role in the battle. “This is a very important test for the Southern Front,” he said. “We ask all the states of the world to help the Syrian people and to help us the way Iran and Russia help the regime.”

Safadi said that Nusra Front has a small presence in the South and that Israelis are prohibited from contacting them since it is a terrorist organization.

“Israel is only in contact with the Free Syrian Army, as it is in the country’s security interest to weaken the Islamists,” he said.

The Iranian, Syrian, and Hezbollah press identify all of the Syrian opposition as Islamists affiliated with al-Qaida and Islamic State.

In Safadi’s opinion, Islamic State is getting all of the media attention because they are burning people, but their numbers are less than other Western-backed groups.

If FSA could receive more weapons and military support such as the Kurds did in Kobani, where they were able to fight off Islamic State, then they could advance against the group in other locations as well, he argued.

    listen up to Wesley Clark here, “our friends and allies funded ISIL to destroy Hezbollah” what more is needed? Hezbollah on the front lines holding back the very evil that seeks to devour America… your brothers in arms deserving of so much more…

    With all the evidence now so blatantly obvious to what happened, how can this criminal elite face justice when they are in total control of the Government and Judiciary?
    How does this snowball gain momentum and start to unravel?
    Sites like VT and many others have done an outstanding job of seeking the truth at great risk as these people have much to lose.
    Who will be the one to come forward and tell all?
    Where is the next Jim Garrison prepared to risk all in the name of patriotism for the truth?
    It just needs that small crack to open so that these perpetrators will sing and do deals to save their own necks.

    I can’t get this run-around right. Read my first comment below, FIRST! Bloody word limit!!

    Daily stats and analysis by the excellent Ziad Fadel at syrianperspective com
    Aleppo is emptying of the IS filth, as they flee, and also relocate to their Cannibal Capital, Raqqa, which the Syrian Arab Army is now turning towards in such a definite way, that there is no mistaking they are going to lay siege to it. Stand by for the wails from the usual stooges about barrel bombs, on the poor rats of Raqqa.
    The Golan area is now a tinderbox, because the stupid devious Khazars stabbed the peacekeepers in the back, are supporting the takfiri filth, so the IDF child-killers will now be eyebrow to eyebrow with the SAA and with Hezbollah, who killed 2 or 4 IDF, and a dozen of their Nusra passendgers the other day.
    It is now too late for Yankees seeking glory, to join IS, who are currently killing their own, after they have defected. Praise Allah.
    And praise the great Syrian Arab Army, and its leader Dr Bashar al-Assad, for being the ones to break the back of Obama’s murderers. The axis spoken of here, is the Axis of Resistance.

    2]] OK, here’s the run-down.
    Anything you read from the Free Syrian Army is bollocks, because the Free Syrian Army is extinct. The heroic Syrian Arab Army, the armed forces of the democratic pluralist sovereign state of Syria – the Syrian Arab Republic, to give it its full name — have annihilated the FSA cannibals.
    Anything you read from the Syrian Ossuary of Human Remains is balls. SOHR is a tool of MI6, run from a shop in Coventry England. It has no –NO — sources in Syria, and relies on propaganda fed it from the MI6 spies in Iskanderun, Turkey.
    As for the Khazar mouthpiece, you ought to know better than to bother with their drivel.
    The Southern Triangle is a catastrophe for the Coalition of the Guilty, (Israel and Jordan, in this case). They are natch, using Jabhat al-Nusra and associated rats as cannon fodder, and ISIS too. They have been blasted out of the Kuneitra district, and there is no sign of them recovering. The Iranians’ revenge for the death bof their general now extends to permitting any Iranian citizen to go to Syria to join the fight.
