In the wake of the Trump administration’s move to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, there have been a number of critical responses from both Syria and the wider Arab world. Syrian ambassador Bashar Jaafari suggested that the United States could give Israel “North and South Carolina.”

Jaafari also called out Genie Energy.

Syrian military officials have alluded to the use of “tunnel warfare,” in an interview aired on Lebanon’s Al-Manar TV, a military strategy reportedly mastered by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) through experience in the Syrian Civil War—particularly against the Islamic State (ISIS).

Subterranean attacks have frequently been utilized in the past to get around Israel’s U.S.-based technological superiority, by Hamas and Hezbollah, while Syrian posturing comes just as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) was preparing to confront the latter two.

It seems the IDF better remember to pave their base.
