We Don’t Want ISIS Defeated in Syria: Israeli Intel Chief

AhlulBayt News Agency - While Israel has stated in the past that it prefers ISIS over the Syrian government under Assad, Israeli military intelligence chief Major General Herzi Halevy has taken that assertion further, telling the Herzliya Conference this week that Israel does not, in fact, want to see the terrorist group defeated. 

Halevy told the conference that the last three months have been the "most difficult" for ISIS since they first declared a caliphate, and he was quoted by Israeli news sources as saying, "Israel does not want the situation in Syria to end with the defeat of [Daesh]."

The Israeli general said that, "Withdrawal of the superpowers from the region and letting Israel alone in front of Hezbollah and Iran that possess good abilities will put ‘Israel’ in a hard position. Therefore, we’ve got to do all we can so as not finding ourselves in such situation."

Israeli officials have repeatedly voiced support for the idea that the terrorists of Daesh conquer the entire Syria than the "Iran-allied" government.

​Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country.

The Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants.

Late last year, British media released footage showing Israeli forces treating a wounded Takfiri terrorist in the occupied Golan Heights.

The Israeli regime has saved over 2,000 Takfiri militants at the cost of about USD 13 million over the past three years, added the report of British newspaper Daily Mail published in December 2015.
