Hezbollah campaign stalls on Syrian Golan Heights | The …

Contrary to reports by Lebanese and Hezbollah-affiliated media outlets regarding a widespread, successful offensive designed to purify the Syrian Golan Heights ofrebel forces, it turns out that the military operation carried out by the Assad regime and the Shiite terrorist group has not bornemuch fruit.

The major operation, which was devised with the assistance of Iranian officials, began about two weeks ago. During the first days of the offensive, Lebanese and Syrian media reported rapid gainsby regime and Hezbollah forces in the Syrian Golan Heights, citing the occupation of a large number of villages that had previously been under opposition control.

In reality, however, the military achievements of the operation were poor and there have been no substantive gains in the region. A couple of thousand Syrian army soldiers along with a few hundred Hezbollah fighters indeed did take control of individual villages and several outposts, yet the Syrian opposition both secular factions andmembers of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front also managed to capture several villages and outposts.

The situation in the Syrian Golan Heights, in essence, has not changed at all following the operation. Hezbollah first explained that this was due to the difficult weather. However, even after the storms and blizzards passed, the offensive did not pick up. Several battles are still raging across the region, but neitherside can claim a decisive advantage yet.

Syrian army troops and Hezbollah fighters are focused on trying to take over the center of the Syrian Golan Heights, near the main road between Damascus and the border town of Quneitra. This move is apparently intended to secure the road to the Syrian capital, and probably has no connection to Israel.

Surprisingly, the Syrian army did not send elite fighters to the combat zone, but rather regular forces thathad already been operating in the area. The same is true for the Hezbollah operatives fighting in the Golan Heights: It appears the Shiite organization has not made use of the advanced weaponry in its possession, as it did in other arenas.

The opposition, for its part, has reported no significant losses on either sides of these battles, despite claims that the regime was usingchlorine gas against its opponents. In the Syrian Golan Heights there are a significant number of opposition fighters according to various estimates nearly 10,000 from a variety of different groups.

Hezbollah has also expanded its military efforts around Aleppo, but made no significant gains in that region either.

Iran seeking to open 'third front' against Israel on Golan: Netanyahu

February 23, 2015 – 18:02 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net – Iran is seeking to open a “third front” against Israel using Hezbollah fighters on the Syrian Golan Heights, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday, Feb 22, according to Agence France-Presse.

Netanyahu said Tehran’s attempts to entrench itself along Israel’s borders was one of the biggest emerging security threats facing the Jewish state.

“Alongside Iran’s direct guidance of Hezbollah’s actions in the north and Hamas’s in the south, Iran is trying also to develop a third front on the Golan Heights via the thousands of Hezbollah fighters who are in southern Syria and over which Iran holds direct command,” he said.

Speaking at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said his ministers were to be briefed on “the security challenges developing around us, first and foremost Iran’s attempt to increase its foothold on Israel’s borders even as it works to arm itself with nuclear weapons.”

An Israeli air strike inside the Syrian-controlled sector of the Golan Heights on January 18 killed six members of Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran and allied with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, as well as a general from Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.

Israel neither confirmed nor denied responsibility, but it has carried out several such strikes over the past two years, stressing its policy of preventing arms transfers to militant groups and potential attacks.

Netanyahu said that Tehran’s ongoing “murderous terrorism” has “not prevented the international community from continuing to talk with Iran about a nuclear agreement that will allow it to build the industrial capacity to develop nuclear weapons.”

World powers are trying to strike a deal with Iran that would prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear bomb in return for an easing of punishing international economic sanctions.

Israel has repeatedly warned that Iran’s nuclear programme has military objectives, a claim Tehran denies.
