Israeli Commandos Rescue Wounded Terrorists in Syria
by Stephen Lendman
Israel, like America, is a sworn enemy of peace and stability. Both nations partner in waging war on Syria.
Britain’s Daily MailOnline (MO) has video evidence of Israeli commandos rescuing ISIS and other terrorists in Syria – crossing the border virtually nightly under cover of darkness to accomplish their mission.
A previous article cited Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon admitting Israeli support for ISIS and other takfiri terrorists – deceptively calling them Syrian rebels, disingenuously claiming a humanitarian mission.
Over 2,000 wounded terrorists have been treated in Israeli hospitals, according to MO, aiding their recovery to return them to terrorizing Syrian communities.
In September 2014, a photo of Netanyahu and Ya’alon visiting terrorists in an Israeli hospital went viral online. Netanyahu was seen shaking a terrorist’s hand.
Israel and America are part of the problem, not the solution to restoring regional peace and stability. They prioritize endless conflicts, mass slaughter and destruction – responsible for ravaging one country after another, creating the greatest refugee crisis since WW II, as well as possibly provoking a possible US/Russian confrontation.
MO said it “gained unprecedented access to (Israel’s) secretive and hazardous operation, embedding with the commandos to obtain exclusive footage, and interviewing the medics who are obliged to treat Syrian militants, some of whom openly admit that they intend to kill Israelis.”
“Almost every night, Israeli troops run secret missions to save the lives of Syrian fighters, all of whom are sworn enemies of the Jewish state.”
MO quoted Israeli Lt. Col. Itzik Malka, Golan Brigade medical branch commander, saying “(m)y dream is that one day, the Red Cross will say, thanks guys. We’ll take it from here. You go back to your unit and take care of injured Israelis.”
“I am proud of what we are doing here, but it is a great burden. For every (jihadist hospitalized), there is one less bed for an Israeli. One day we will have to make a choice between an Israeli life and a Syrian one. When that happens it will be hard, but I have to say my first duty will be to Israelis.”
It’s unclear what arrangements Israel made with terrorist groups to rescue and treat their wounded fighters, said MO. All that’s known is they’re taken to Syrian/Israeli border areas, then picked up nightly by Israeli commandos for treatment.
“(L)ives of more than 2,000” fighters were saved. Israel is mostly tightlipped about its operation. It involves treating some civilians – to create the illusion of a humanitarian mission.
An unnamed Israeli spokesman lied, claiming it’s “a world leader in providing humanitarian assistance, both in the Middle East and around the world.”
While treating terrorists used by Washington as imperial foot soldiers, Israel intermittently bombs Syria and Gaza, along with brutalizing the entire Palestinian population.
It extrajudicially executes on average two Palestinians daily, injures thousands more, mass imprisons countless numbers for political reasons, treating them brutally under horrific gulag conditions.
Caring for wounded terrorists is for strategic, not humanitarian reasons – part of Israel’s war on Bashar al-Assad. According to Lt. Col. Malka, “(t)hey are desperate for our medical help.”
“They have no doctors, not even a vet. Once we treated a man who had been stitched up by a friend with a needle and thread. If they want our help to continue, they know they must stop anybody from attacking our soldiers and civilians.”
It’s a strategic relationship between otherwise sworn enemies – “a case of my enemy’s enemy is my friend,” according to one analyst. Israel struck a deal with the devil.
It’s main objective is defeating Assad, Hezbollah and Iran to achieve unchallenged regional control, partnered with Washington.
