Anti-Syria Group Asks Israel to Confront Assad: Report
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An anti-Syria group comprising certain foreign-based oppositionists openly pleads with the Israeli regime to directly confront the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The so-called National Salvation Front in Syria, which represents certain members of the anti-Damascus diaspora, including some who are based in France and Belgium, also proposed a “roadmap” for closer relations with Tel Aviv, Press TV cited the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) as reporting on Monday.
Citing an Israeli radio station, SANA said the roadmap features the recognition of Israel by a post-Assad Syrian regime, arriving at a compromise over the issue of Syria’s Golan Heights, which have been occupied by Tel Aviv since 1967, and the setting up of friendly ties and strategic cooperation between the two sides.
The plan also obligates the dissolution of all Syria-based anti-Israeli Palestinian resistance groups.
The group’s spokesman Fahd al-Masri, meanwhile, released audio and video messages, demanding that Tel Aviv expand its support for anti-Damascus militants.
The Israeli regime has been a vociferous supporter of the Assad administration’s ouster. It has been arming the Takfiri militants fighting the government forces and providing treatment for those arriving in Golan Heights under the pretext that it would render such service to those in “its” territory.
Last year, Riad Hijab, the head of a Saudi-backed so-called opposition group, known as the High Negotiations Committee (HNC), met with former Israeli Minister of Military Affairs Moshe Ya’alon on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
In the past, Kamal al-Labwani, a well-known anti-Assad activist with close ties with US and Israeli officials, hailed Tel Aviv for its support for the militants, and urged the regime to establish a safe zone for them on the border with the Golan Heights.
