A bridge too far?
Merely securing a river crossing across the Euphrates with a secure land-bridge between Iran and Syria just an interim step? Those foreign interventionists and proxy forces as allied with the despot Assad have future goals in mind?
DEBKAfile even giving us a time-line as to how events transpire?
"The next Iranian-Israeli engagement in Syria is due in late April, early May"
next challenge to Israel is likely to be more extensive than a lone
Iranian drone intrusion and may start at a distance from Israel's
northern border. Russia and Iran are trying to run a two-way,
cross-border military movement between Iraq and Syria, which US forces

Iran and Russia are meanwhile training an elite 'rapid deployment force' of 5,000 Shiite fighters for combat in Syria."
