TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian lawmaker said on Wednesday that Israel’s recent attack on Hezbollah Resistance Movement showed Israelis’ disappointment with Takfiris’ performance in Syria.
“The Zionist regime assassinated senior Hezbollah figures … because it felt threatened by the Resistance forces after repeated failures by terrorist forces active in Iraq and Syria,” a member of Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mohammad Saleh Jokar told the Tasnim News Agency.
Jokar added that common interests of Israel and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group have put them in a same front against Islam, but Tel Aviv has embarked on killing key Hezbollah figures after it was disappointed with these terrorists.
Six members of Hezbollah plus an Islamic Revolution Guards Corps general were killed when an Israeli military helicopter hit their convoy in Syria’s southwestern region of Quneitra.
Links between Israel and the foreign-backed terrorists that fight against Damascus government is not something new.
Israeli media reported in December 2014 that Zionists had taken three wounded militants belonging to Takfiri groups fighting in Syria to hospitals in Israel.
The reports also revealed that more than 449 wounded militants had been treated at Nahariya Hospital in Galilee.
According to documents from Israeli hospitals, Israel’s army paid $10 million until September 2014 for the costs of treatment to the foreign-sponsored militants injured during battles with Syrian government forces, and the money has come from the Israeli military’s budget.
