Damascus: Big offensive to capture Quneitra and Daraa – this week

The Syrian military announced formally on Sunday that its army’s 4th armored division will this week launch a major offensive to capture the Quneitra region from rebel control, while its “Tiger Force” backed by 4th division elements will go into action in the Daraa region. These southwestern regions adjoin the Israeli and Jordanian borders respectively. DEBKAfile: Assad has ordered his army to go forward following the failure of the talks in Helsinki on Friday between Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint US Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. Valery Gerasimov, chief of Russia’s General Staff, to reach agreement on the Syrian question.

    Iran is trying its proxy war moves on Israel. Will Israel be fooled I don’t think so. So the terrorists implanted in the Syrian 4th Armored division are just going to waltz up to the Israeli border unnoticed.
    Yea right. These guys have a death wish, that will be fulfilled.

      The primary purpose of the IDF is to protect the Israeli citizens, and their nation. Anything else is lower on their priority list. A threat grows against their main purpose, and I am sure that this threat will be neutralized by the most suitable and ways.
      The IDF are old hands at dealing to terrorists. Their track record speaks for itself.

      If Europe is not going to defend Israel if Iran attacks it, why should Israel defend Europe from Muslim terrorists?
