The Iranian backed Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and their loyal proxies have found a new foothold into Syria, as they settle themselves I the Golan Heights, east of Israel.
Golan Heights has been a bone of contention between the Syrians and Israelis but the equations became a little more defined after the Syrian civil war broke up. Control of the Syrian-administered part of the Golan Heights was split between the government and opposition forces.
Repeated battles were heard of between 2012 and 2018, till in July 2018, the Syrian government regained control of the eastern Golan Heights.
But as the tyrant that the US acts to be, in March 2019, U.S.
President Donald Trump proclaimed that “the United States recognizes that the Golan Heights are part of the State of Israel”, making the United States the first and only country to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the effectively annexed regions of the Golan Heights.
European Union comprising 28 member states refused to recognize Israeli sovereignty.
So the situation remains that Iran has stepped into the game as it systematically spreads its tentacles and rules the roost. By virtue of its support to Hezbollah and Assad, the Syrian land adjoining Israel’s border appears increasingly to belong to Iran, while Israel still dominates its presence in the sky.
According to media reports, Iran has already started establishing a military infrastructure on the Syrian side of Golan.
A report published by the Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs confirms that ‘Iranian and Hezbollah fighters have crept methodically westward from the Syrian lava field of Lajat, 40 miles from the Golan Heights in Syria’s southwest, to the broken nation’s Quneitra province, which is even closer.’
The Iranian elements now have four bases comprising Revolutionary Guard, Lebanese Hezbollah and local Syrians that being trained in one of these four bases in and around the Golan area.
Iran is serious about its stronghold in Syria and this new tactic is proof of that. Political analysts believe that aerial attacks will not be able to wipe out the village insurgence that Iran has taken advantage of in this area.
