Will Israel Once Again Turn its Back on Those Who Have Been on its Side?

The Dilemma of Sponsorship, from Southern Lebanon to Daraa and Quneitra

Israel may soon face a dilemma. The “arrangement” with Russia as to the future of Syria may stave-off an Iranian presence but will pose an existential danger to the groups of rebels near the border – groups which have worked closely with the IDF to prevent direct friction with hostile elements on the line of contact. It is vital that the solutions to this challenge demonstrate to future partners that Israel does not turn its back on those who have assisted it facing a common threat.

Colonel (res.) Dr. Eran Lerman and Dr. Nir Boms
