Israel threatens Press TV Syria reporter over Golan photos
Israel has threatened Press TV correspondent in Syria over photos taken in Golan Heights showing al-Qaeda-linked terrorists next to Israeli soldiers in the occupied region.
The photos obtained by Press TV correspondent show Takfiri terrorists from the terrorist al-Nusra Front next to Israeli soldiers, who are speaking face-to-face with terrorists in Golan.
The pictures further prove Tel Aviv’s support for al-Qaeda-linked terrorists, especially al-Nusra Front, that have been wreaking havoc in Syria.
Israel is known to have been providing medical, intelligence and military support for terrorists fighting to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. A number of terrorist commanders, wounded in government attacks on terrorists, have reportedly been hospitalized in the occupied territories.
Cooperation aimed at targeting resistance
The Israeli military’s close cooperation with the terrorists also assisted the regime’s bombing of a convoy belonging to the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, on January 18.
Six Hezbollah members including Jihad Mughniyeh and a general of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi, lost their lives in the Israeli aerial assault on the Syrian section of Golan Heights. Jihad was the son of Hezbollah’s slain military commander, Imad Mughniyeh, who was assassinated in an Israeli-orchestrated bombing back in 2008.
Hezbollah later announced that the attack was coordinated between Tel Aviv and the al-Nusra terrorists.
“The assault has revealed the degree of cooperation between Takfiris and Israel,” Sheikh Naim Qassem, Hezbollah deputy leader, said during a ceremony seven days after the Israeli attack in Qunaitra, an area close to the Syrian Israeli border.
Late last year, a UN report confirmed contact between terrorists in Syria and the Israeli army across the Golan ceasefire line, especially during heavy clashes between the terrorists and the Syrian troops.
The report also confirmed that terrorists had been taking their wounded comrades into the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan Heights for treatment.
The UN also confirmed the delivery of boxes by the Israeli army to terrorists on the Syrian side of the ceasefire line.
