Israeli media reported on Saturday, that the upcoming visit of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi to Syria is very exceptional, and should worry Israel, especially since this is the first visit since 2011, that is, since the beginning of the war in Syria.
The Israeli Channel 13 pointed out that the Iranian president, seems, will arrive on Wednesday, and will hold a series of meetings with the Syrian President Bashar al Assad, during a two-day visit.
Iran wants to unify the axis of Iran – Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and this makes it make a new plan regarding Middle East policy.
This comes after a senior regional source close to the Syrian government told Reuters on Friday that Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi will visit Damascus next week.
The Israeli media also touched on the visit of the Iranian Foreign Minister, Hussein Amir Abdullahian, to Beirut, and his meeting with the Secretary General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and his meeting with the Secretary General of the Islamic Jihad, Ziyad al Nakhala.
The Israeli media stated that Israel followed with concern the visit of the Iranian Foreign Minister to Lebanon and his positions, and several Israeli circles saw that the implications of this visit fall within the context of strategic shifts in the region, especially that it came at a very bad internal Israeli timing.
During the visit, the Iranian foreign minister spoke about the relations between Tehran and Damascus, stressing that they are excellent, deep and strategic.
Abdullahian welcomed the strengthening of relations between Syria, the Arab world and the countries of the region.
