Israeli TV Shows Footage Of ISIS Training Camp On Israel's Border

Tyler Durden's picture

Last November Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country “won’t allow Islamic State figures or other enemy actors, under the cover of the war in Syria, to set up next to our borders,” but it appears this has already happened, to the point that a sizable ISIS training camp has been set up just across the Golan Heights border with Israel. Though Syrian al-Qaeda has long been a mainstay in southern Syria along Israel's border, this constitutes the first widespread public acknowledgement and confirmation of a significant ISIS base of operations in the Golan region.

Israeli media this week is reporting news of the base camp after Israel's Channel 2 aired an extensive report with video and photographic evidence of what's being described as a training and recruitment center which has already attracted hundreds of new terror recruits. Channel 2 is one of Israel's most visible and established news broadcast channels and operates under "The Second Authority for Television and Radio" licensed by the Knesset and the Ministry of Communications. According to the Times of Israel

Israel’s Channel 2 said the commanders have made their way to an Islamic State-controlled enclave “close to the border” with Israel. They have set up a training camp to which they have recruited 300 local youths, said the report, which showed footage apparently of the camp and training sessions.


Among the commanders is one of Islamic State’s most notorious recruiters, Abu Hamam Jazrawi, the TV report said.


The commanders are also now running Islamic State internet propaganda campaigns from their new base, in place of the former campaign headquarters in Raqqa, the extremists’ former de facto capital in northwest Syria where the fight to oust them has entered what appear to be its final stages.

The Channel 2 exposé further notes the presence of multiple senior Islamic State commanders at the camp, which suggests the terror group could be attempting to relocate its assets to Syria's south as it appears to be crumbling with the onset of SDF, Syrian Army, and Russian forces in the eastern part of the country. 

The Times of Israel acknowledges another shocking fact, which has itself become an open secret of sorts among Israeli defense and policy officials: what it calls the long lasting "live and let live" relationship with al-Qaeda in the region. The Times of Israel explains

Both the IS-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid Army and the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly the al-Nusra Front, which is linked to al-Qaeda, have been set up on Israel’s borders for years.


Despite a relatively long-lasting “live and let live” relationship with these groups, the IDF has warned of a potential — some say inevitable — conflict with them and has been preparing to respond to cross-border attacks.

Though the IDF has "warned" of some "potential" direct action against the most notorious terrorist groups in the world which seem to be comfortably ensconced within eyesight of Israeli border posts, it has never taken significant direct action against these groups, instead routinely targeting the Syrian army, Iranian-linked militias, and Hezbollah with airstrikes. This is a general reflection of the Israeli strategy of regime change in Syria, which has resulted in a well-documented history of assistance to al-Qaeda affiliated rebel groups.

A Wall Street Journal investigation found that this relationship involved weapons transfers, salary payments to anti-Assad fighters, and treatment of wounded jihadists in Israeli hospitals, the latter which was widely promoted in photo ops picturing Netanyahu himself greeting militants. As even former Acting Director of the CIA Michael Morell once directly told the Israeli public, Israel's "dangerous game" in Syria consists in getting in bed with al-Qaeda in order to fight Shia Iran. 

Channel 2 News and the The Times of Israel also featured an image from a prior video of a lone ISIS militant holding an Islamic State flag with the Israeli side of the Golan border in clear view.

The Times of Israel
featured the above image: "Threats from across the border in a video released by an Islamic State affiliate on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on September 3, 2016."

In recent years, multiple current and former Israeli defense officials have gone so far as to say that ISIS is ultimately preferable to Iran and Assad. For example, former Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren in 2014 surprised the audience at Colorado's Aspen Ideas Festival when he said in comments related to ISIS that, "the lesser evil is the Sunnis over the Shias." Oren, while articulating Israeli defense policy, fully acknowledged he thought ISIS was "the lesser evil." 

Likewise, for Netanyahu and other Israeli officials the chief concern was never the black clad death cult which filmed itself beheading Americans and burning people alive, but the possibility of, in the words of Henry Kissinger, "a Shia and pro-Iran territorial belt reaching from Tehran to Beirut" and establishment of "an Iranian radical empire."

With Israeli media now widely reporting the Islamic State's presence along Israel's border we wonder why such a clear and documented fact isn't cause for bigger outrage. Though Israel's Channel 2 bombshell report aired earlier this week, there's been resounding silence in international press. ISIS is camping out along Israel's border, yet all we hear about is the supposed "Iranian threat" to Israel's existence.

It's a symbol of tremendous constraint that they haven't taken out this base, or it's somethin else...

I’m still convinced Israel’s endgame is to help Isis carve out a territory next to Israel, then declare Isis a threat and invade and occupy the region to expand it’s borders. Zionist extremists want Israel to own all the territory Israel once had and it includes parts of Syria.

To just invade Syria would be difficult, but invading Isis would be easy politically. Isis would also roll over easily when American support disappears and the occupation will get support if harsh measures are used in the name of suppressing terrorism. You might even get UN support with peacekeepers.

There will be pieces like this article released to help set the stage, and you’ll know they’re ready to act when a catalyst happens, real or not, so Israel can claim they’re defending themselves.

I think their secondary motive to cut land supplies to hezbola across Syria has failed at this point, and that’s not going to pan out. However, as long as muslims are fighting muslims I’d bet Israel is happy with the status quo, for now. Arming terrorists will prove difficult when they try to occupy, look at Afghanistan, so playing the good guy and allied support will be critical.

You know it is fake news because if there were really people on your border in plain view training to kill you WELL THEN......YOU WOULD JUST FIRE UP A FEW WART HOGS PLANES AND ANIHALATE THEM

Is Israel turning on ISIS to tie up loose ends?

Or will this be justification for Israel to enter Syria?

Probably both.

So Israel has no problem bombing Syria, but cannot find the courage to bomb this damn camp right on their border?


Probably all Mossad dressed up so they can invade more of the Golan and take all the oil.

A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (commonly known as the "Clean Break" report) is a policy document that was prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Richard Perle for Benjamin Netanyahu, the then Prime Minister of Israel.[1] The report explained a new approach to solving Israel's security problems in the Middle East with an emphasis on "Western values." It has since been criticized for advocating an aggressive new policy including the removal of Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and the containment of Syria by engaging in proxy warfare and highlighting its possession of "weapons of mass destruction". 


According to the report's preamble,[1] it was written by the Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000, which was a part of the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies.


Former United States Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Perle was the "Study Group Leader," but the final report included ideas from Douglas Feith, James Colbert, Charles Fairbanks, Jr., Jonathan Torop, David WurmserMeyrav Wurmser, and IASPS president Robert Loewenberg.

"You have not begun to appreciate the depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom of not merely the latest great war, but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone." - Marclis Eli Ravage, Century Magazine - February, 1926

The plan was:

- form a radical group called ISIS

- ISIS threatens the area.  "oh no, look how evil they are beheading ppl".

- ISIS captures Syria first, then Iran.

- Israeli and US troops enter, "rid the area of the humanitarian crisis called ISIS.  Look how good we are we saved the world."

- Syria and Iran fall under US / Israeli control, which was the goal all along.

Meanwhile idiotic Americans send their children to "fight for freedom" by laying their life on the line for another banker / resource war.  The usual hypocrisy of God Bless America premeates the controlled airwaves.  lmao.

Urban Roman's picture

That was the plan, but in this one case, it really was foiled by the Russians.

All the Russians have to do is "fight ISIS too", and actually drop a few bombs on them. If some 'coalition' 'advisors' get hit, well, too bad.

Meanwhile, how many of these "ragtag refugee children" are being taken in by Israel?


EddieLomax's picture

Yet ISIS have only the sandy desert spots now under control, the better populated areas have been cleared.

So I could believe this strategy if it meant getting valuable land, but right now ISIS is pushed into the crappest areaas, and Israel has trouble enough populating its own areas rather than grabbing hard to defend poor areas.

What would make more sense though would be to grab some of these crap areas, and then relocate large numbers of Palestinians to them.  Then declare them a state, that would take a lot of time to pull off and likely too bold, but if they could do it then they'd solve their biggest security dilema.  Right now it is in a holding pattern, Israel won't grab much more land, but the Palestinians desperately need more land with their high reproductive rates.

So the solution is they slowly spill over into other Arab lands, pissing the locals off there, magic.

hestroy's picture

I understand it's not your fault you are completely brainwashed but joo reproductive rate is much higher than palestinian.

Endgame Napoleon's picture

Isreali leaders might just regard Iranian nukes as the bigger threat, but it is hard to make a case that Iranian religious extremism has resulted in as much evil as ISIS’ religious extremism. ISIS beheaded American and Japanese journalists and Syrian relief workers. They beheaded an entire group of Coptic Christians. They burned a Jordanian pilot alive. They boiled human beings and threw gay people off of buildings. It is as bad as the Middle Ages in the West. Of course, the Israelis have seen a lot of suicide bombing by Hezbollah, which is funded by Iran. That might be the reason. It is all bad.

biker_trash's picture

Iran is a hedgemonic threat regardless of nukes or so called sponsored terrorism. They have the society, intelligence and technology needed to pull the middle east together and create a unified government that will control the ME oil and the land surrounding Israel. This is the real reason the NEOCONS/Israel want to destroy Iran and destabilize the region. Everything else is just BS. All you have to do is look at the PNAC plan and how its actually being executed to know this. I suggest you do a little more research before posting here.

Its not possible for Jews to to do regime change or occupy A government where the gentiles don't rebel against them. When america stops doing the wars for Israel (per capita Jews do plenty of fighting) this world of supposed equality will end, along with the years of subsidies the Jews have been paying to the american gentile people. They make up A huge percent of the 1 %, who pay most of the taxes, and the hedge of protection and blessing are real life trade agreements we don't hear about directly.

So, what will happen when Russia bombs those ISIS camps?  You really think the Russians will sit ideally by and let ISIS carve out a new territory in Syria?

BennyBoy's picture


ISIS bases are israeli/CIA bases.

They will not bomb unitl they become unuseful in taking out Assad or reducing the size of Syria so the Saudi pipeline goes thru.
