The crisis in Syria is proving complex even to countries such as the US which had reckoned the ouster of President Bashar Assad would be easy and fast.
The latest ceasefire in Syria collapsed with US, the Israeli and Saudi regimes being the major stumbling blocks to peace in the war torn country. There is concrete evidence that Washington , Tel Aviv and Riyadh continue to support terrorists in Syria and therefore have no political will to solve the crisis in Syria. Under such circumstances, the Syrian government has several options to pressurize its enemies.
The Israeli regime seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the 1967 Six-Day War and later occupied it in an illegal move condemned by the international community.
The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.
The Israeli regime has been treating wounded Takfiri terrorists in the occupied Golan Heights. Video clips have shown heavily armed Israeli commandos can be seen crossing over into the Syrian territory and dragging a wounded militant to the occupied Golan Heights and occupied Palestinian territories.
Over the last few days, a large contingent from the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division was reported to have arrived in the Golan Heights region of Al-Quneitra, as the government forces prepare for a large-scale offensive against Israeli-backed Takfiri terrorists in the region.
The objective of this upcoming offensive will be to capture the key Takfiri terrorists-controlled town of Jabata Al-Khashab, which has been under the control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Nusra Front) for over two years.
Israeli regime warplanes have been targeting Syrian government artillery positions in in the war torn country within the framework of Tel Aviv’s strategy of backing territories.
Syrian forces need to pursue intruding Israeli jets to ensure they stop their provocative and illegal actions over the country’s airspace. Recently the Syrian army said it had shot down an Israeli warplane and a drone inside Syria following an Israeli attack on Syrian army positions in the south. During the 12th September incident, the Syrian military said that the intruding aircraft had been detected and targeted by the country’s air defense system while they were striking Syrian military positions. The warplane, it said, was downed in western Quneitra and the drone in an area called Sa’sa’ and located on the Damascus Reef. This latest move served as a warning to the Israeli regime that its intrusions into Syria will be met with severe force.
Making Israel pay a high price for its support of terrorists by increasing support to Palestinians and encouraging them to conduct more martyrdom-seeking operations against Zionist settlers in the ongoing third Intifada (Uprising).
Another strategy to end the crisis in Syria can be through President Bashar al Assad offering a general amnesty to rebels willing to lay down arms and thus separating them from terrorists. This will enable security forces concentrate on the liberation of strategic regions including Halab (Aleppo) with the objective of blocking logistical support to terrorists.
The Israeli regime must pay the highest prices for its interference in Syria due to its influence among terrorist groups, the US and Arab regime. If the Israeli regime comes under intense pressure, the will be an opening in solving the Syria crisis. As long as the Israeli regime continues to exist in a peaceful environment, the crisis in Syria will persist.
The Saudi regime has led reactionary Arab regime in overtly supporting terrorists operating in Syria to oust the country’s legitimate government. This is while the Riyadh regime and its allies are currently stuck in the Yemen quagmire after invading the impoverished country in March last year. The offensive, which has killed over 10,000 Yemeni civilians, was launched to reinstate Hadi, a Saudi ally who had resigned as Yemen’s president and oust the Ansarullah movement.
Syria can make the Saudi regime pay a high prices for backing terrorists in Syria by providing missiles and other weaponry support to the Ansarullah forces.
Close military collaboration between Syrian and Iraqi government to ensure the liberation of Mosul by blocking communication between terrorists.
Sustaining military efforts with a view of attaining absolute victory while rejecting talks which have proved futile in the past.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah reiterated this point on Monday when he said he sees no prospect for a political solution for the Syrian conflict. He categorically stated that developments on the battle ground will ultimately determine the outcome of the conflict in Syria.
