Self-proclaimed “Syrian opposition” figures, namely Issam Zeitoun and a number of his cohorts, visited the Israeli occupation entity.
Following a meeting with Israeli officials, Zeitoun proclaimed that he came openly and that he isn’t ashamed of his actions, and that the, “time of dealing [with the Israelis] covertly is over,” stating that he proposed a plan to the Israeli officials that involves undermining Syria’s unity.
With this, Zeitoun joins the ranks of other so-called opposition figures who have been received by the Israeli occupation in the past, including Kamal al-Labwani, Abduljalil al-Saeed, and others, who undertook these visits to declare their allegiance and thanks to the occupation for its support of terrorism, and to demand that it establish a “safe zone” near the borders of the occupied Syrian Golan.
Several self-proclaimed opposition figures, including Nabil al-Dandal, announced a plan in 2017 that involved acknowledging Israel and establishing friendly relations, and in the same year called for more cooperation between the Israelis and terrorist organizations against the Syrian Arab Army.
