Foreign-backed militants fighting against the Syrian government have called on the Israeli regime to target the positions of the Syrian army and Hezbollah resistance movement in the Golan Heights, a report says.
The appeal comes as the Syrian forces, backed by Hezbollah fighters, have made gains against the militants in the southern parts of Syria and inflicted heavy losses on them in the recent days.
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday that Syrian troops and allied fighters “have made significant progress” in the sensitive border regions near Jordan and the occupied Golan Heights.
“Syrian rebels, whose forces are fighting against a new offensive in the south by the axis of the Syrian army, Hezbollah, and Iran, are calling on Israel to attack their positions before they are able to take the Syrian Golan that borders Israel,” an Israeli Druse, who is in frequent contact with the militants in Syria, was quoted by the Israeli Jerusalem Post as saying.
