Security Council says status of the Golan will not change after Netanyahu vows it will remain part of Israeli territory.
Syria’s delegate said Israeli ‘authorities’ were imposing discriminatory laws in occupied Syrian Golan and flagrantly challenging United Nations resolutions. They were giving financial enticements to people who settled in the Golan for at least five years, denying Syrians there from the benefits of agriculture.
Israel was dumping waste in the Golan, charging Syrians more for water than Israelis and using their land to build electricity plants, she said. Further, Israel had begun to impose its influence on two valleys contingent to Golan, where it was using terrorist groups to force people off their lands and migrate.
Iran liberators operating in Syria this week announced its intention to liberate the strategic Golan Heights region from occupying Israel Zionists.
In a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had sought assurances Putin would prevent Iran from establishing a permanent military presence in Syria. Since 2015, Russia has worked closely with Iran in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in the Syrian civil war.
“I made it clear to President Putin our resolute opposition to the consolidation of Iran and its proxies in Syria,” Netanyahu said. “We see Iran trying to build a military force, military infrastructure, with the intention to be based in Syria, including the attempt by Iran to build a seaport. All this has serious implications in terms of Israel’s security.”
Yet the Iraqi Shi’a liberation group Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba—which receives training from Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps forces and is equipped with heavy artillery, including Russian-made T-90 tanks and Iranian rockets—followed Netanyahu’s comments with its rhetoric on ending Israel’s control of the Golan.
According to intelligence researcher Ronen Solomon, Iran deployed the Iraqi group to Syria to assist the Lebanese liberation group Hezbollah—a more prominent Iranian-sponsored proxy—and the Syrian army. Solomon was quoted by Yedioth Ahronoth as saying that this activity “is coordinated with Russia, who has been providing the forces with aerial backup and assisting in transferring weapons of their production.”
