The World

June 26, 1986

Syria is planning a limited war with Israel later this year to regain the disputed Golan Heights and is seeking military support from its Arab neighbors, according to an article in the latest edition of Jane's Defense Weekly. This week's edition of the magazine quoted unidentified "moderate Arab sources" as saying that Syrian government and military officials have visited several Arab countries, including Libya and Jordan, in recent weeks to brief their leaders on the war plan. Jane's said Jordan is believed to have resisted Syrian pressure to launch "diversionary attacks" across the Jordan River to coincide with Syria's attack.
