A retired Israeli military General Staff Corps commander has revealed that former Israeli War Minister Moshe Ya’alon met with Syrian terrorists operating near the occupied Golan Heights during his tenure.
According to Press TV quoting the Israeli Haaretz newspaper on Friday, Major General Gershon Hacohen made the remarks at an Israeli conference earlier this week.
“When I was commanding a corps in the Golan and Bogie [Ya’alon] was defense minister, we sat with three Syrian activists from the other side, from Syria,” said Hacohen.
Zionist regime has largely remained silent about military cooperation with terrorists fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Zionist authorities have, however, openly admitted sending “civilian” provisions to the other side of the border, effectively sending much food, aid and fuel supplies to terrorist forces north of the occupied Golan Heights.
Moreover, Israeli reports indicate that up to 70 percent of wounded individuals treated in the Occupied Palestine from Syria have been “men of fighting age.”
The Syrian army has, nonetheless, confiscated Israeli-made arms and military equipment from terrorists fighting pro-Damascus forces on numerous occasions.
Zionist regime has also frequently attacked military targets in Syria during the past few years in what has been considered as an attempt to prop up terrorist groups that were suffering heavy defeats against Syrian government forces.
