„In a contentious move, Naidm Koteich, a well-known Lebanese political analyst revealed his support for Israeli annexation of the currently embattled Syrian city of Aleppo, arguing that were this scenario to take place, the city would have been peaceful, like the Golan.
In a comment he wrote on his Twitter page, Koteich expressed dismay over the absence of an Israeli move to annex Aleppo. ‚If Israel would have annexed Aleppo, it would have been safe today, like the Golan. Aleppo’s citizens would have been better off living under occupation than living under ruins,‘ Koteich wrote.“
