Golan Heights and South/West Syria 0
18 November 2018

A senior Israeli defence official indicated that the Golan Heights "sector still poses many complex challenges... we are well aware of Iran's increasing attempts to establish itself militarily in many areas of Syria. We see how the Iranians are trying to transfer weapons to Hizbollah in Lebanon through Syria. We know that Hizbollah is trying to establish terrorist infrastructures on the Syrian Golan Heights, near our border". "The IDF", he added, "will not allow this to happen".
