IDF: Iran behind all recent attacks in Golan region

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - "All of the attacks in the Golan Heights sector since December 2013 have been carried out with Iranian direction," a senior IDF Northern Command officer told reporters on Sunday.

According to the officer, several hundred Hezbollah operatives are currently active on the Syrian side of the border in the Golan Heights. The officer also said Iran was responsible for the planting of an explosive device on the Israel-Syria border in April.

Terrorist operatives in the border area have received "clear guidance" from Iran to carry out attacks, the officer said. One terrorist cell operating in the area is led by Samir Kuntar, the Lebanese Druze terrorist who was released from Israeli prison in 2008 as part of a swap deal with Hezbollah. Kuntar has recruited local Syrians to join the ranks of his cell.

"Iran sends advisers [to the area] and provides money, weapons and training [to terrorists operating there]," the officer said. [ Source ]
