REPORT: Israel takes advantage of the Syrian crisis to generate electricity
Lebanon News
   
In light of the ongoing chaos in Syria, Israel decided to generate electricity through wind turbines across the bordering area of the Northern Golan Heights.          

This project has been in suspension for the past years since Syria referred complaints to the United Nations claiming that it threatens security, stability, and peace. The project consisting of 41 blades will provide Israel with 150 megawatts (MW) of electricity costing up to 100 Million Euros.                       

In this context, Head of the Golan Regional Council Eli Malka said that this project will increase the power of Israel in the Golan area since it is a strategic area with wind available in high frequencies.                           

 On another note, military movements are still at the forefront in the South Golan seemingly since the Israeli army is still preparing for the possible arrival of wounded Syrians from the civil war by setting up a military field hospital.                               

In this context, sources quoted Israeli army officials as saying that the field hospital will be allocated to help unarmed Syrians in order not to have a repeat of the incident when 7 Syrians were transported inside Israel for treatment.          

As for the Syrian crisis, it is still on the agenda of Israeli officials; Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatens that his army will forcibly prevent the movement of arms from Syria to Hezbollah.
