Syrian Army Sends Reinforcements to Israeli Border -- Report
Jerusalem Post ^ | September 22, 2019 | Tzvi Joffre

Posted on 09/21/2019 9:11:34 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

Arab media reported in September that the Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist group was attempting to bring the Quneitra area located along the Israel-Syria border under its full control.

The Syrian army sent military reinforcements consisting of tanks, vehicles, soldiers, ammunition and weapons to the towns of Jamlah and Aabdyn near the Syrian border with the Israeli Golan Heights for unknown reasons, reported the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) on Saturday.

Earlier in September, SOHR reported that the Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist group was attempting to bring the Quneitra area located along the Israel-Syria border under its full control and was imposing its control over official establishments and departments in the area, while also recruiting youth and men in the area.

Rebel forces from the area who retreated to Jordan after Syrian forces took control of southern Syria have been holding meetings in order to form a new military body to fight the Syrian forces, reported SOHR in early September. The meetings are still only in the planning and consultation stages with no action on the ground as of yet.

SOHR has also reported about multiple attacks in the area on pro-Iranian and pro-Syrian regime officials and media in recent months, describing the situation as a "continuous state of lawlessness." Citizens in the area continue to fight against regime forces, militiamen and institutions.

This is what becomes of undermining Netanyahu, I think.

Natanyahu has enough undermining from his own advisors to care about this.

It would be far far better if Jerusalem would finally just eliminate the terrorist gangsters.

I believe you're right, but if they think this will help his opponents, they're probably not correct. :^)

The grandly named Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is virtually a one-man band, run by Rami Abdul Rahman from a drab city in Britain.

SOHR, founded by a Sunni who owns a clothing shop in Coventry, and receives about 2 million a year from the UK foreign office.

The Syrian observatory is an one man anti Assad propaganda machine

Good timing for Syria to be stress-testing the IDF, with Bibi on the ropes and the would-be new P.M. Gantz foolishly courting the Arab bloc.

Sadly very BAD timing for the Israeli people, who may come to realize soon what a stupid decision they made in the voting booth.

It is not about this. Syrian army is not a threat to Israel, especially in its current state. Iran is a single entity in the region Israel is unable to decisively beat. Although Iran is unable to beat Israel too.

Israel has been harboring murderous terrorist organizations on its door step in the Golan for years.

Netanyahu sleeps in a bed of his own making.

May be fake news as Israel has been taking these sorts of military positions out on a regular basis, especially in the Quneitra area.

And his Syrian opponents want to put Israel in a dirt map of their making.

Opinions vary, I guess. For my part, I favor the guy, and think he stands athwart those who want Israel to disappear. There's a lot at stake.

Meanwhile on the southern front, the USS Nitze, part of the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group, has taken up station off the SA coast. Mission seems to be to stop any cruise missiles and drone attacks.

USS Nitze is armed with two Mk 41 Vertical Launch System arrays, with 96 launch cells between them, and equipped with the powerful Aegis radar and associated combat system, the Arleigh Burke class represents the most capable air defense system mankind has ever created. Each launch cell can accommodate a variety of weapons, including a single SM-2, SM-6, or SM-3 surface-to-air missiles or four smaller RIM-162 Evolved Sea Sparrows and was involved in Tomahawk strikes on Houthi-controlled radar sites in Yemen in October 2016

The Iranian proxy PMU has taken over the border areas where SA and Lebanon meet; have ground-to-ground missiles and an array of explosive UAVs, and far more troops and equipment that the Iraqi army; they now pose a direct threat to both SA and Israel. Operation is called The Will of Victory under Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Col. Qassem Masliyah.
