AL KOM , Syria – Israel has attacked Syria with a missile strike targeting a position held by the Syrian Arab Army in al-Kom, a town near the occupied Golan Heights in Syria. This comes as the government forces crackdown on ISIS and related jihadi groups in the area. Israel’s history of supporting ISIS has been documented by Atlanticist press as well. “Israel ‘giving secret aid to Syrian rebels’, report says. Direct funding, food, fuel and medical supplies allegedly provided by Israeli state to keep Isis and Iranian-allied forces in neighbouring civil war at bay “, according to the report covered by the Independent.
Today’s strikes represent what could be moves of desperation on the part of the Zionist entity, and generally are meant to test the geopolitical waters. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. A ceasefire was signed on June 11th 1967, and the Golan Heights came under Israeli military administration. Israel has been illegally occupying the Golan Heights since 1967.
