The Israeli regime’s involvement in war on Syria is not something new. Tel Aviv has a role in fanning tensions and managing them in its best interests, as it has hands in many conflicts the region has so far witnessed, including the current Saudi aggression on Yemen as well as the dispute between Algeria and Morocco over the Western Sahara, the Black September massacres in Jordan and the civil wars in Sudan and Lebanon.

But many today think that the Israeli regime is far from the conflict in Syria while the realities on the ground suggest that Tel Aviv is watching closely what is going on in the Syrian frontlines. In fact, it is in best interest of the Israeli regime to intervene to break Syria into small states with different ethnic groups for strategic objectives including decreasing influence of Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iran in the region.

What is Tel Aviv’s behind-the-scene’s role in Syrian conflict?

Supporting the radical groups to protract the war; since spark of the conflict in Syria, the priority for Tel Aviv has been to support the takfiri terrorism.

For over five years, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formed a logistic base to contribute to movement of the terrorists into the Syrian territory and to support them by funding and weapons and to offer any other kind of help to them. The Israeli PM is said to have allowed into the Syrian territory large number of spies linked to a variety of the global intelligence services including the Israeli Mossad and the American CIA. He also assisted in creating supply lines. The available information suggest that many operatives are fighting in Syria or providing Tel Aviv with intelligence on military and strategic matters. All these prove the fact that the Israeli officials are watching closely the developments of battlefield happenings in Syria.

The Israeli intelligence bets on the possibility of activism for fueling the sectarian conflicts in the region, as it also could help change the geopolitical map of the region through establishment of sectarian and ethnic small states out of a splitted Syria. This, in turn, gives the US and the West the feeling of need for Tel Aviv.

In an article titled “Israel’s Heavy Hand in Syria’s Civil War ", the American writer Richard Silverstein has uncovered the Israeli "mean" role in the Syrian crisis for the interests and objectives of Tel Aviv. Silverstein suggested that the Western media and some of the Arab ones tried to promote for a "big lie": the Israeli regime is taking a neutral position on the conflict in Syria.

The American writer focuses on the fact that the Israeli regime has a "heavy hand" in continuation of the crisis in Syria, as he suggests that Tel Aviv has managed to infiltrate the radical groups fighting the Syrian government. Besides supplying them with weapons, it moves to direct them through its agents inside Syria who work as links between Tel Aviv and the terrorists.

Tel Aviv: the more dangerous role

A couple of issues need to be taken into consideration concerning the dangerous Israeli role in Syria, as follows:

Tel Aviv plays the most threatening role in the Syrian conflict through a cross-border policy in association with countries helped intensify the conflict between the sides in Syria like Qatar and Saudi Arabia. In fact, prolonging the war in Syria makes the Israeli regime the largest beneficiary of chaotic conditions, because it drops the Syrian government from the list of Axis of Resistance in the region and makes it weak militarily.

Tel Aviv was waiting to take revenge from the Syrian government especially that Damascus was the only Arab side that declined to accede to the US-backed Israeli conditions to support peace process with the Israeli regime.

Many remarks have uncovered the Israeli role and intentions. Tel Aviv since beginning of the crisis has called on the world community to recognize the annexation of the originally Syrian Golan Heights to the Israeli territory. As the battlefield developments rolled on, the Israeli role became overt through a couple of measures inside Syria including launching airstrikes near Damascus International Airport. Additionally, the Israeli artillery and air force several times intervened to provide safe havens for the terrorist groups inside Syria.

The Israeli leadership has a fear of winding down of the crisis in Syria. This pushed it to rush to create a strategic environment deep in the Syrian territory through boosting ties with armed groups. This comes with the aim of impairing the Resistance Axis which has Syria as its key member, and keeping Syria from demands for reunion of its seized territory Golan Heights with its original lands. Tel Aviv heightened moves after it became clear that the Syrian government began restoring strength as a result of Hezbollah's intervention and Iran's advisory assistance.

Washington, on the other side, benefits from the Israeli role and the battlefield situation to push for partition of the country. The US on the one hand lends to the terrorists the helping hand and on the other hand fights them in certain areas of the country to transform the geopolitical conditions in its favor. This helps damage the unity of the Syrian territories and cancel Syria’s role as a regional power in the face of the Israeli regime. This is what justifies many voices in the so-called Syrian opposition who consider Tel Aviv there ally.

Considering the Israeli interests, Washington and its Western and Arab allies have tried to make Syria a safe haven for the terrorists. That is why they are offering political, military and propagandistic support for them to assure they are strong enough on the ground.

Therefore, it is not right to believe, as the Western and Arab media try to promote, that Tel Aviv plays a neutral role in the Syrian crisis while many now understand the truth about the Israeli regime’s role in the Syrian conflict.

Tel Aviv can do what many other countries can't do. But dealing with its role is influenced by a variety of considerations. The Israeli measures could much be in best interest of the US and the West.

On the other side, some Arab countries' promotion for alliance with Tel Aviv comes as part of scenario to put more strains on the Resistance Axis, though the people have begun to oppose these policies.

Still, the Israeli leadership is managing its war in Syria through logistic and military support for any decisive battle. But, the analysts suggest that so far it declined to make any considerable gains but prolonging the war and diversifying the opposing sides for more destruction. This is the status of the Syrian crisis today.
