Not al Qaeda, but 50-70 Syrian outlaws in Golan buffer zone

According to DEBKAfile’s military sources, the group calling itself “Eagles of Golan,” which has taken up position in the Beerajam and Bariqa villages near Israeli lines in the Golan buffer zone, numbers no more than 50-70 men, most of them Syrian criminals with a sprinkling of army defectors, rather than foreign and al Qaeda fighters from Iraq, as reported by the Daily Telegraph from an Israeli military intelligence source. Pitted against the Syrian army’s 90th Division, this group is not up to complicated tactics like seizing control of Quneitra or cutting the road to Damascus.
