Also from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter
"Syrian buildup with Druze OC for major Golan op"
"A series of steps by the Assad regime in the last few days, reported by DEBKAfile's military sources, point to preparations for a massive Syrian army offensive, backed by Hizballah, pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Iranian Revolutionary Guard officers, for clearing the strong rebel presence out of the Syrian Golan. These include the arrival in the Quneitra area of the armored brigades of Syria's 4th Division, including advanced Russian T-90 tanks, as well as Hizballah's elite fighting unit, the Radwan Force, and pro-Iranian Shiite militia forces. Syrian President Assad also took the unusual step of appointing a senior Druze officer, Brig. Gen. Osama Zhar a-din, as the Golan front's new commander. Our sources add that Iran, Hizballah and Syria will henceforth hit back at any Israeli air or artillery strikes against a Syrian target on the Golan. This was decided in high-level three-way consultations in Damascus on Sept. 15"
A THREAT NOW EXISTS ON THE BORDER BETWEEN SYRIA AND ISRAEL [GOLAN HEIGHTS], AN IMMINENT DANGER OF SERIOUS COMBAT WHERE NO SUCH POTENTIALITY HAS BEEN THE CASE FOR OVER FORTY YEARS?
THAT DECISION TO ENGAGE ISRAELI TARGETS HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE AND WILL PROMULGATED AT THE DISCRETION OF THE COMMANDER ON THE SCENE?
The situation goes from bad to worse!!
