JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- Hezbollah, Syrian army forces and Iranian officers have drawn close to the border with Israel in the Golan Heights in their fight against Syrian rebels, AFP reported on Wednesday, citing state media reports and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"Regime troops and their Hezbollah-led allies are advancing in the area linking Daraa, Quneitra and Damascus provinces," the Observatory stated.

"The operation launched by the Syrian army is being fought in cooperation with... Hezbollah and Iran," a Syrian army officer told state television, in what AFP reported was the first time that Syrian television had acknowledged such cooperation.

The Syrian forces were attempting to gain control of the area from rebels such as the Nusra Front, al-Qaida's Syrian affiliate, who have made advances in southern Syrian in recent months. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Hezbollah-Syrian-forces-and-Iranian-officers-draw-close-to-Israeli-border-in-fight-against-rebels-390716" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Both American Conservatives and our friends in Israel are about the only ones left who know the truth of Islamic terrorism and their ultimate end, yet they are a dangerous lot and should not be ignored. The American media is worthless in reporting anything under this evil administration and I thank the good Lord Jesus for Christian websites.
