The Russians would not save Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his regime without Israeli approval. It is widely known that Israel has normal, if not strong, relations with Russia.
Tense relations are neither in Israel nor Russia’s interest. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu often travels to Moscow apparently to coordinate the Russian interventions in the Arab region. This clearly suggests that the Russian Federation coordinated with Israel before intervening to save Assad and his regime.
Iran too has strong ties with Russia although these relations have been a little tense recently.
Lebanon’s Hezbollah is the creation of Iran’s velayat-e-faqih (Guardianship of the Jurist). It receives most of its funding from Iran and secures the rest from drug deals across the world.
All these factors destroy the idea that the aim of Hezbollah’s arms is to resist Israel and protect Lebanon’s borders. This aim is often repeated by Lebanese supporters of Hezbollah and even Lebanese President Michel Aoun reiterated this in Cairo.
The Iranians and their product Hezbollah propagate this idea to arm the Shiite militias in Lebanon so it can be used to protect Tehran’s influence and control. It doesn’t make sense for the Lebanese president to throw his support behind Hezbollah and officially adopt militias that take orders from the Guardianship of the Jurist.
