Yesterday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman toured the Golan Heights with the IDF, where Iranian-backed Syrian forces and terror groups alike reside. While there, The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports, Liberman warned of pro-Iranian terrorists to Israel's north:

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday said Israel has detected efforts by Iran-backed terror groups to establish infrastructure in southwestern Syria, under the cover of dictator Bashar Assad’s renewed offensive against two rebel-held provinces in the area.

“We are seeing efforts by figures associated with the [Iran-led] axis, with permission from the regime, to establish terrorist infrastructure here in the Syrian Golan Heights,” Liberman said during a tour of the border with Syria.

“In our view, this is unacceptable, and we will act forcefully against all terrorist infrastructure that we see and identify in the area,” he said.

Liberman would not elaborate on the nature of the “terrorist infrastructure,” but reiterated that Israel was holding Syria responsible for it as well.

“I don’t want to go into more detail than what I’ve said. We are seeing preparation, an effort by forces connected to the [Iran-led] axis to establish terrorist infrastructure, and we are determined to not allow that. Period,” he said. “Everyone will take responsibility, everyone will pay the price, including the regime...”
