Expert: While a Hezbollah Withdrawal From Golan Border Region in Syria Would Benefit Israel, Reports Such a Pullout Has Begun Should Be Viewed Skeptically

Hezbollah withdrew its forces from around a dozen positions near the Israeli border on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights this week, according to a number of media reports circulating over the past two days.

If true, such a development would benefit Israel, a Hezbollah expert told The Algemeiner on Friday.

However, the reports, which cite sources within the opposition to the Assad regime, “should be treated with a healthy dose of skepticism,” David Daoud — an Arabic-language research analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank in Washington, DC — said, adding that the reasons for and scope of the supposed pullout from the Quneitra area were unclear.

“In this particular instance, I’d lend more credence to a regime or Hezbollah report on this evacuation, since they’d be admitting a ‘net loss’ to themselves,” he noted.

“It appears,” Daoud stated, “that Hezbollah has not cleared out entirely from Quneitra.” But the Lebanon-based Shiite terrorist group has apparently moved “300 fighters from 10-14 positions in the area,” he continued.
