Israel Planning Ground Operations in Syria? US-NATO-Israel Plans to Balkanize Syria, Redraw Middle East

21st Century Wire says…

There should be no doubt about what the Washington-led axis powers are planning to do with Syria over the next grueling 12 months.

As 21WIRE reported back in April 2015, and in February 2015, and in January 2015, in December 2014, and also in October 2014, the elements of the State of Israel have consistently provided material support, military air cover, and medical aid to various US and GCC-backed terrorist mercenaries who are working to destabilize and ultimately break-up the nation state of Syria and overthrow the government of Bashar al Assad in Damascus. Israel claims this is all in their own interest of ‘national security’.

Below, Global Research details the extent of Israel’s interests in Syria, including land it is expecting to appropriate as a result of the coming planned instability by a Washington-led “coalition” of conquest. Also look for NATO to slip into the mix via its local real estate agent, Turkey…

Israel partnered with Obama’s war on Syria since conflict began in March 2011. It supports ISIS and other takfiri  terrorists – providing arms, treating wounded fighters in Israeli hospitals.
It conducted half a dozen or more terror bombings on Syrian targets as well as several cross-border attacks.

It’s kept a relatively low profile in partnering with Obama’s war to topple Bashar al-Assad, eliminate a regional rival and isolate Iran ahead of likely greater destabilization and possible war on the Islamic Republic based on fabricated threats.

On Augut 16, Israeli media reported IDF preparations for possible Golan Heights ground operations on Syria’s side of the border if alleged terror attacks occur against Israel – likely false flags it can use as justification for aggression.

Israeli media reported state propaganda about threatening Islamists along Israel’s border. The IDF on high alert in response conducted a large-scale drill last week simulating three scenarios: countering a claimed terrorist attack on Israeli forces, a ground incursion into Syria, and repelling an alleged Iranian directed Hezbollah attack.

Fact: No evidence suggests Islamic State or other terrorist elements in Syria turning on their sources of support, namely Israel.

They haven’t attacked Israel or its military any time throughout nearly four and a half years of conflict. Nor has Iran or Hezbollah – neither indicating any intention to do so.

Israeli claims about earlier Iranian and Hezbollah attacks on its territory from Syrian Golan positions or Lebanon are a complete fabrication – used as pretext for possible aggression.

On Sunday, an IDF source lied claiming “(i)t’s clear that Iran is behind all of the (Golan area) terror attacks…in the past two years. The Iranians are using the border – they establish units – whether it’s (Jihad) Mughniyeh (a Hezbollah member Israel killed), (Samir) Kuntar (a Palestine Liberation Front operative), and more – to carry out” attacks.

These and similar reports are part of Israel’s propaganda war (at times turning hot) against Iran, Syria and Hezbollah.

Longstanding US/Israeli plans call for balkanizing Syria – part of their scheme to redraw the Middle East map, first by likely establishing a buffer and no-fly zone with Ankara in northern Syria.

US warplanes have been bombing Syrian infrastructure targets for nearly a year on the pretext of targeting ISIS. Turkey is involved attacking Kurdish forces in Syria.

Perhaps Israel now plans joining them more directly by sending troops cross-border into southern Syria – against Assad, not nonexistent terrorist threats. Will Libya 2.0 follow?
