    Since most of Assad’s soldiers are not Syrian, it is not difficult to have Hezbollah and other Iranian controlled terrorists wear Syrian army uniforms in order to disguise themselves.

      The point is, if anything goes wrong on Israel’s northern border, it’ll be Assad’s fault. Putin doesn’t want problems neither for Assad, nor Israel. But the area needs to be taken under control. It’s between Syria and Israel…

    Why then is Lavrov allowing Hezbollah and Iranian forces advancing overnight? More lies from ROSH!
