An Israeli commander has admitted that the Israeli military is in contact with the foreign-backed militant groups operating inside Syria.
The Israeli commander said the militants provide Israeli spy agents with information on the identity and medical condition of the wounded militants.
In February, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to a secret field hospital in the occupied Golan Heights, which offers medical services to the injured militants coming in from Syria.
Three days later, foreign-backed Syrian opposition leader Muhammad Badie reportedly praised Netanyahu for visiting the wounded militants and said that he and his friends thanked Netanyahu for publicly voicing support for the injured militants.
Some reports also say that most of those al-Qaeda-linked terrorists who have received treatment in Israeli hospitals have returned to Syria.
Abu Dhabi-based newspaper The National recently reported that at least three different militant groups have been in regular contact with Israeli spy agents.
The daily quoted a source from one of the militant groups in southern Syria as saying that all groups have received more than one tranche of funding worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from Israel.
