Israel panicking over Assad success in Syria: Analyst
“As peace starts to break out, the Israelis are panicking. They’re panicking over… the success of the Assad government in Syria,” Kevin Barrett said in an interview on Wednesday.
He said that the Zionist regime does not want to see “a peaceful negotiated end” to Syria’s ongoing “horrible conflict.”
Barrett said Zionists are “behind the destabilization of Syria in the first place.”
“I think what we may see is a peace accord that will allow for internationally monitored elections, which I think Assad will likely run in and very possibly win,” the analyst stated.
Barrett noted that Israel has been in cahoots with Saudi Arabia with a view to destabilizing Syria through setting off anti-government demonstrations in Damascus.
“A lot of money was applied to this and once the demonstrations were set off and the Assad government reacted – overreacted – then the pre-planned destabilization campaign funded by billions of dollars coming from Saudi Arabia and directed in part from Israel targeted Syria and started ripping it apart,” he said.
On Tuesday, the Syrian army reportedly captured a key town near the Lebanese border from militants.
The Syrian army has been fighting against militants for several weeks to secure the Qalamoun region, north of Damascus.
The army has recently conducted successful clean-up operations across the country, inflicting heavy losses on militants.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and a total of 7.8 million of others displaced due to the violence.
