Tehran Threatens to Open the Golan Front in Response to Israeli Strike

An Israeli army mobile artillery cannon is stationed near the border with Syria in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on January 20, 2015, two days after an Israeli air strike killed six Hezbollah members in the Syrian-controlled side of the strategic plateau. The strike on Syria killed an Iranian general, Tehran confirmed on January 19, as thousands of supporters of Lebanon’s Hezbollah gathered to bury one of the six fighters killed in the same raid.

“The response will be firm and decisive.” This, in short, was the Iranian reaction to the Israeli attack in the Syrian province of Quneitra, which killed a senior commander in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRG), among others. The Iranian reaction indicates the possibility of opening the Golan front, where work is underway to build the necessary infrastructure. Preparations began after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s announcement that the response to Israeli attacks on Syria would come from the Golan Heights.

“The Zionist crime, through the violation of Syrian airspace, showed once again that the terrorist acts of sedition perpetrated by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the takfiri groups are part of the policies and agendas pursued by the authoritarian order and international Zionism”

In a statement, the IRG’s public relations department announced the “martyrdom of Brigadier General Mohammed Ali Allah-Dadi” in the airstrike on Quneitra, saying that “Brigadier General Mohammed Ali Allah-Dadi was martyred within the territories of the Islamic Resistance, and in defense of the holy sites and the oppressed Syrian people.”
“This devout commander was on an advisory mission to support the Syrian government and people against the extremist Salafi groups. He provided crucial advice to stop the crimes and conspiracies resulting from terrorist Zionist sedition in Syria,” the statement added. “The Zionist crime, through the violation of Syrian airspace, showed once again that the terrorist acts of sedition perpetrated by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the takfiri groups are part of the policies and agendas pursued by the authoritarian order and international Zionism, in coordination with the leaders of the White House and the Zionist entity, against the Islamic nation.”
Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, in a meeting with Iraqi Interior Minister Mohammed Salem Ghaban, said that “the latest Zionist attack proves the continued military cooperation between the Zionists and the terrorist takfiri groups, and complements the efforts of the leaders of Tel Aviv, who seek to take advantage of the terrorists to create a buffer zone along the borders of the occupying entity.”
For his part, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif condemned the attack. The Iranian Foreign Ministry released a statement extending “condolences to the families of the martyrs and the Hezbollah leadership for this brutal criminal act committed by the occupying entity.”
The incident

 “proved once again that the battle in Syria is part of the confrontation with the Zionist entity, and Hezbollah remains steadfast and firm in the path of jihad and martyrdom against the occupation and foreign interference in the affairs of the peoples of the region.”

In a letter to Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of Iran’s national security and foreign policy parliamentary committee, said that

“the response by the Hezbollah mujahideen against the Zionists will be harsh.”

“These heinous and odious crimes are being repeatedly committed by the Zionist entity, with blatant disregard to international law and resolutions, to weaken the axis of resistance in the face of terrorism and occupation in the region.”

Islamic Shura Council head Hussein Sheikh al-Islam said that “the resistance will open the Golan front in response to the Zionist aggression, which was a grave miscalculation by this entity.”
“Without intelligence assistance from terrorist groups in Syria, the Zionist entity would not have managed to execute this operation,” the aim of which is “to please the extremist groups in the Zionist entity and serve electoral objectives.”

S. Nasrallah: We Fight in Syria So As ISIL Massacres Won’t Be Repeated in Leb.

Local Editor

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan NasrallahHezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed Sunday that the Islamic Resistance of Lebanon is engaged in Syria battles in order to deter the U.S., Zionist and Takfiri hegemony.

During his speech on the 8th eve of Hijri month of Moharram at Sayyed Al-Shuhada complex in the southern suburbs of capital Beirut, Sayyed Nasrallah replied to those who are linking the ongoing events in the region to the signs of Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (as) – the twelfth Imam of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) household, referred to as “Ahlulbait (as)”.

“We do not need a religious plea to fight in Syria. We do not fight in order to match the signs that are being circulated as a prelude to Reappearance,” his eminence said.

“Yet, we are fighting (in Syria) in order to defend Lebanon and the region, and so as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi would not repeat in Lebanon what he have done against the Iraqi tribe of Abu Nemr,” he underlined.

Sayyed Nasrallah, moreover, warned that relating the ongoing regional events to the signs of Reappearance “has serious cultural and intellectual dangers which only lead to delusion, and the evidences that some authors are talking about in this context are based on suspicions and probabilities.
