Israel finally took a hand in the swiftly moving events looming from Syria over its northern borders by launching multiple air raids against the key northern Syrian air base known as T4 near Palmyra early Friday night March 17. Those events are spearheaded by the pro-Iranian Hizballlah’s drive to capture the Golan. Israel acted after Moscow failed to take action to restrain Hizballah’s advance through the Hermon.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
