Golan Heights was seized during the Six-Day War. Hezbollah is a political movement within Lebanon that represents the Shia population that make up roughly 25 percent of the country. There are a number of armed militias like Hezbollah throughout the world that have sprung up in the last forty years in response to the military and political incursion by foreign governments. Islamic Courts and Al Shabaab is another. Al Qaeda, ISIS, and others are purely mercenary forces sponsored by governments, travel extensively through the Middle East and the rest of the world to wage war, and attempt to resettle into a region using terrorism.

There was a large oil discovery in the Syrian Golan Heights. That's why Israel has petitioned to annex it in the past.

Guess what. The US flew in tank ammo from Germany. Israelis pulled no rabbits out of a hat. They had help in many forms as a matter of fact.

From what I understand the attacks recently have NOT involved Isreali aircraft entering Syrian airspace. Syrian AA defense has improved dramatically.
I'm afraid you are very confused about history. Wikipedia is available to help you get straightened out. I'm sure Putin calls wikipedia a CIA invention...but its a good start.

The current Syrian regime isn't even able to control more than 65% of Syria despite years of Russian and Iranian military support, blood and treasure. Its hard to see how it can threaten Israel if it cannot even control the border region next to Israel.

If Israeli aircraft can destroy targets (including AA) deep inside Syria at will without entering Syrian airspace (per your claim), it doesn't really say much good about Syrian AA defenses.

Russia has cancelled S-300 deployment for Syria. Iran was apparently using low-flying drones to evade Israeli radar to send weapons to the Palestinians. The two Israeli attacks were in response to the violation of the rules of engagement which risked widening the war.

Syria can take back all of the territory but it runs the risk of confrontation with the US and Turkey. They could've gone after Deir Ezzor but had to gain back control of Aleppo and other urban centers to protect the civilian populations. Russia has only been involved for a little over 2 years. Syria probably would've routed the rebels back in 2013 around the time of E. Ghouta false flag chemical attacks. That was when the rebels started getting heavy weaponry from the US by way of Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Jordan. The budget for the US alone was $1 billion/yr. There were probably a good 10-15 separate governments backing the terrorist groups with their own funding.

I highly doubt that Syria would be able to reclaim the Golan Heights on their own. Neither Egypt nor Jordan we're able to regain any of their list territory following the Six Day War. The only reason Egypt was granted the Sinai was because their president at the time (Sadat) had signed a peace treaty with Israel.

He had many dealings with Russian investors in the last couple of decades. After his bankruptcies no bank would look in Trumps direction let alone make him a loan. Along come the Russians loaded down with stolen dollars from the mother country with a need to invest those looted funds. Trump is waitng.

As for Russia and the US working together it would be the best thnig humanity has ever seen to date. Sadly certain political prostitutes in the west won't allow that.

More uniformed, ignern't nonsense. One of my main sources for military history is the Leavenworth Library. Not Wiki like you. Visit it sometime. The people there know what they're talking about.

Educate yourself
