While Syrian army is making gains against terrorists in Aleppo, some of the southern parts of the county remain under the control of militant groups.

As Press TV’s correspondent Zahraa al-Derzi reports, many believe Israel is directly assisting the terrorists to hold their ground in the hope of creating a buffer zone in the Syrian Golan Heights.

Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the 1967 Six-Day War and later occupied it in a move that has never been recognized by the international community. The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.

Even the “Israel-friendly” United Nations considers the occupation and subsequent annexation of the Syrian Golan to be unjust and illegal. Just recently, the United Nations General Assembly once again passed a resolution calling on Israel to withdraw from Syria’s Golan Heights, territory that the Tel Aviv regime has occupied since 1967.

According to Global Research, “The Israeli regime is engaged in provocative acts in the Golan Heights, which is increasingly becoming a flashpoint in the ongoing Syria crisis.

Southern Syria is divided into two major areas:  the liberated area of al-Quneitra, and the Israeli occupied area of the Golan Heights where Al-Nusra Front and al-Qaeda terrorist groups base their fighters.

Tel Aviv has been attempting to drive the Syrian army out of al-Quneitra.  Israel’s objective is to join this part of the Golan Heights to the territory it controls, thereby creating a buffer zone like the one it once had in southern Lebanon.”
