Iran Vows to ‘Liberate’ Golan Heights

Many fear Syria’s civil war will spill into Israel. Iran is trying to make sure that happens

Many believe that it’s inevitable that the Syrian civil war will eventually spill over into northern Israel.

Iran is doing everything in its power to prove them right.

Iran’s Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, is already heavily engaged in the war in Syria. But the group has suffered major losses, and is stretched thin trying to keep Syrian dictator Bashar Assad in power.

So Iran has funneled money and resources to establish a new Hezbollah brigade focused on “liberating” the Golan Heights from Israeli control.

A spokesman for the “Golan Liberation Brigade” told Iranian media:

“This is a trained army with specific plans. If the government of Syria requests, we and our allies are ready to take action to liberate Golan. We will not permit Arab and Islamic countries in the region to remain in the grasps of the occupiers.”

The new brigades promotional video featured soldiers carrying flags that read “Israel Will Be Destroyed.”
