Hezbollah Likely to Replace ISIS to Israel's North

As Stand for Israel tells you in the Daily Dispatch, Iran is supposedly pulling back from the Syrian border with Israel. However, that will do little to alleviate the Iranian threat to the Jewish state. Israel Hayom's Yoav Limor writes that Iran will instead use its terrorist proxy Hezbollah to make Israel's northern border even more volatile:

The Iranian-backed Shiite terrorist group is already in Syria. Its operatives are fighting alongside the Syrian army and it has several hundred local villagers on its payroll, who engage in intelligence gathering.

This was a strategic decision by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, who wants to turn the Golan border into an active war zone with Israel.

Hezbollah is likely to employ its familiar methods: joining local militias, importing its tactical abilities – anti-tank missiles, explosives and snipers – from Lebanon, and importing troops.

The first stage has already been completed, the second stage is in full swing and, unless Hezbollah is stopped, the third stage will become a reality in a few short years.

Stopping Hezbollah in its tracks is Israel's main challenge and doing so will become exponentially more difficult once the Syrian civil war officially ends...
