The West and the Israeli regime have been cooperating to disintegrate Syria but won’t admit harboring such a goal, says a commentator.

“They (the West and Israel) don’t want to acknowledge their criminal role and the efforts to completely pull apart Syria and overturn the government,” Sara Flounders, the co-director of the International Action Center, told Press TV on Sunday.

Flounders also praised the significant role of Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia in defusing the plot to disintegrate Syria.

Conflict erupted in Syria back in 2011, when a small group of opposition forces initially took up arms against Damascus. Soon, however, a mixed group of international terrorists and paid mercenaries mingled with and then sidestepped armed opposition groups in Syria, turning the Arab country into a proxy battlefield for the foreign governments opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Iran and Russia have been offering Damascus crucial advisory military assistance on an official request from the Syrian government. Hezbollah, too, has been helping the Syrian army fight terrorist groups.

With that advisory aid, the Syrian government has been able to successfully fight back the militancy.
