The Arab newspapers issued this morning dealt with several issues in the Syrian issue, the most prominent of which were the Israeli raids on sites in Syria. In this context, Al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper said: "Yesterday, aircraft, believed to be Israeli, launched raids on" Iranian sites "in northeastern Syria after hours. From the Tel Aviv declaration, bombing a cell in the Golan, southern Syria. "
The Israeli army had announced that it had targeted "a group of 4 armed men who were working on planting explosive devices on a security fence at the disengagement line in the Golan," and held the Syrian army responsible for this operation and every action launched from Syria. He said: "There is no direct link between the cell and an announcement. (Hezbollah) intends to launch an operation against Israel, but we do not exclude that.”
But Israeli sources confirmed that «this cell is definitely affiliated with the Lebanese (Hezbollah), which is trying to convert the Golan Heights to a war front with Israel, and the army refrains from referring to the party, so that it may understand the message and stop its intention to carry out an operation against us in revenge for the killing of one of its members in an Israeli raid On Damascus. ”

Al-Arab: The resignation of the Lebanese Foreign Minister from "a sinking boat"
On the Lebanese issue, Al-Arab newspaper said: "Political sources revealed that the Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif until his decision to resign from his post after the French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian informed him during his visit to Beirut that Lebanon could not get any assistance from any party to get out of its crisis in If the current government remains. "
The French minister asserted in a blatant manner that the government of Hassan Diab should leave in order to pave the way for opening the doors of the international community to Lebanon again, and criticized the prime minister a few days ago to Jean-Yves Le Drian’s visit, who warned that Lebanon was “on the edge of the abyss” in case the authorities did not rush to take measures to save him.
Diab said: "The French official had a lack of information about the course of reforms that his government started and did not carry anything new," and according to local media, Diab even had been excluded from the meeting that he had held with Jean-Yves Le Drian in the presence of three ministers resenting the resigned minister.
The sources indicated that that matter led to a clear warning in the letter of resignation, in which he explained the reasons that led him to take his decision saying, "I participated in this government from the point of work of one employer named Lebanon, and I found in my country employers and contradictory interests if they did not meet." On the interest and rescue of the Lebanese people, the boat, God forbid, will sink everyone.
The political sources felt that the political class should take the step taken by Nassif Hati seriously in light of the political experience he possesses, especially since he worked long in Paris as ambassador of the League of Arab States in the French capital.
Al-Bayan: European events call for stopping Turkish persistence
Regarding the European-Turkish dispute, Al-Bayan newspaper said: "European diplomats confirmed that the statements of Turkish officials last, and most recently the statements of Defense Minister Khulusi Akar, reflect a great" internal suffering "surrounding the Turkish regime, officials are trying to escape from it by creating external" battles ", stressing to Al-Bayan “that Akar’s statements confirm that Turkey has been practicing during the past two years specifically“ emotional diplomacy in a manner that calls for a decisive stand by the international community to put an end to this increasing diplomatic and political absurdity that will only add more tension to the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, threatening the interests of the allies in Region and in Europe. "
Former German diplomat to the European Union, Wolfgang Wilhelm Powell, told Al-Bayan: Akar's statements, finally, reflect a lack of awareness of the situation reached by Turkey at the international level, and also confirms that the Turkish regime is in real trouble after besieging itself in fabricated conflicts aimed at The Turkish interior, not the outside, represented a "throttle rope" that the Turkish regime placed itself around its neck.
In his turn, Karsko, a former Belgian foreign minister adviser and member of the political bureau of the Belgian Socialist Party, was convicted, saying that Turkey, which distributes hostilities in Libya, Armenia, Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Greece, Cyprus, Tunisia, and France, was not satisfied with this extent, and was expanding. The circle of enmity is greater, and this is something that cannot be explained politically and diplomatically, which has no practical or scientific definition, but this system, which suffers from internal pressures and splits within its ranks, is looking for fake battles to pressure the interior under the name of “external targeting”, and the United Nations should intervene and put an end to the Turkish hostility in order to preserve international peace and security, and the rights and wealth of countries from the increasing "thugs" as a result of the slowdown in the confrontation.
Laurent Folluina, a former diplomat at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a researcher at the National Academy of Political Sciences in Paris, concluded by emphasizing that not only were Khulusi's anomalous statements, but also the Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu,Yassin Aktay, leader of the President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party, and others, they delivered statements that show that Turkey is led by people who do not know “the principles of politics and the origins of diplomacy”, who know nothing about international law and international relations, and therefore Turkey.
