Israel Drops Leaflets Threatening Syrian Army And Hezbollah After Nighttime Strike
BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 P.M.) – After an Israeli airstrike near Quneitra late Tuesday night, which SANA described as involving two missiles “fired west of the town of Hadr in the northern Quneitra countryside,” the IDF on Wednesday dropped flyers over southern Syria written in Arabic and addressing “Syrian [Arab] Army soldiers”.
Containing an eagle symbol of what’s described as the IDF’s 210th “Bashan” Division, Israeli media is confirming that the pamphlet is meant to “threaten” Syrian troops near Golan and their ongoing cooperation with Hezbollah.
It appears similar to prior such propaganda ‘warning’ leaflets dropped in previous years of the war, including as recently as in May, seeking to dissuade the Syrian Arab Army’s 90th brigade soldiers from collaborating with or aiding Hezbollah in the south.
“Despite our previous warnings about this and even after the attack on the al-Qahtaniah base on 17/06/21, Hezbollah — in a manipulative way — has turned you into a tool, into marionettes. It uses you as its eyes and it uses your bases without you even knowing,” the flyer says according to a translation in regional media.
Specifically the flyer names Hezbollah official Jawad Hasham while warning of more Israeli aggression to come should the army cooperate with him: “It is no secret that Jawad Hasham is currently in the Golan and in Daraa. Your filthy actions on behalf of Hezbollah are considered by the Syrian Army to be a top priority,” the flyer says further.
