Israel Says It Downed Russian-Made Syrian Spy Drone Over Golan Heights

It admits the failure of the military solution, but the most risky thing about it is that it accepts the temporary geographic distribution of Syria between four foreign parties which are Russian Federation, the US, Iran and Turkey. All these reflect the arrangements for the near future in order to impose a fait accompli despite the worldwide agreement which is expected later.

Like the rest of the region's countries, Israel underestimated Iran's infiltration of Syria.

Israel fears an eventual Assad victory could leave Iran with a permanent garrison in Syria, extending a threat posed from neighbouring Lebanon by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah and has been lobbying Russian Federation and the United States for reassurances that Iranian and Hezbollah forces will not be allowed to deploy near its border or set up bases within Syria.

Yet, even if major forces agree upon suspending fights, we should be anxious about the new stage indicators of regional confrontations inside and outside Syria.

Israel still considers Hezbollah a forward Iranian battalion in the context of the power play in the Middle East, which would be fueled by the anticipated ceasefire agreement that would acknowledge the Iranian presence in Syria. Israel has at times fired to foil what it deemed deliberate cross-border attacks and has struck suspected Hezbollah arms shipments around 100 times in Syria during the civil war. Photos show how the Revolutionary Guards built a series of military bases to be centers of support and financing that will operate as an Iranian highway that extends from Iraq to Lebanon. That is why the new Israeli threats are against Hezbollah in both Lebanon and Syria. In addition, the previous Israeli wars were waged against Hezbollah according to piled up weapons and expansion - nearly every ten years.
