(Worthy News) - The Assad regime is gearing up to expand the area it controls in southern Syria, near the border with Israel.

The Syrian army and the militias supporting it are likely to start their attack on the rebel forces in the vicinity of the border with Lebanon, by the Syrian Mount Hermon. Later they may try to advance southward, along Israel’s border in the Golan Heights.

Israel has taken a harder line against the Assad regime in recent years. Now it will have to rethink its policy, mainly after hundreds of people from radical Sunni organizations, identified with Al-Qaida and ISIS, reached the area. [ Source: Ha'aretz (Read More...) ]

  1. Or maybe Assad is realizing that he needs to defend his southern border in light of the several recent Israeli offensives. I'm just guessing, but would seem prudent to me. Has Assad done any offensives of his own in the recent (uh like 5 years). Uh .... no .... huh? Hmmmm.
