“Hezbollah forces have helped the Syrian [regime] implement its brutality against its own people and also caused instability in Lebanon,” the spokesman added.
“According to a number of sources who talked to the Syrian publication, at least 300 Hezbollah fighters have abandoned 14 positions in the Quneitra area, which sits in near proximity to Israel’s Golan territory,” Maariv Online reported. They retreated in the direction of Damascus, taking with them their tanks, armored vehicles and heavy weapons.
Israel itself has been occupied with the presence of Hezbollah in Syria, interrupting weapons shipments from its proxy, Iran, when possible.
“When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah and we have intelligence and it is operationally possible, we will act to stop it,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last month. “That’s how it was yesterday and that’s how we shall continue to act.”
