Maj. Gen. (ret.) Amiram Levin, member of the Israeli Labor Party, who served as deputy head of the Mossad and as the head of the Northern Command expressed his firm stance on the Golan Heights issue in an Op-Ed on the Israeli news website YNET:
The major changes the Middle East is going through and the results of the brutal civil war in Syria have changed the states’ borders, and these borders won’t go back to what they were since the Sykes–Picot Agreement. Now is the time to set the line established in the 1974 Agreement on Disengagement as the international border between Israel and Syria.
