How is the Iranian Army, Hezbollah Fighters Evading Israeli Airstrikes in Syria?

According to reports in the US Media, soldiers of the Iranian Army and Hezbollah Fighters, dressed as personnel of the Syrian army are fighting the war in Syria and evading strikes by Israel. Many western and Arab nations have continuously accused Iran backed Hezbollah Fighters and Iran army officials for supporting and fighting in disguise for the Assad regime. 

Israel has vowed not to tolerate any Iranian Army or Iranian caked forces like Hezbollah in Syria, and PM Benjamin Netanyahu travelled to Germany, France and the UK this week to try to get support for this position.

In an attempt to evade further Israeli strikes, Lebanese Hezbollah troops and other Iranian-backed militias withdrew from the Daraa and Quneitra provinces in Syria’s southwest near Israel but later reappeared dressed in Syrian military uniforms, the report stated.

One of the commanders told the paper that the convoys were returning outfitted with rockets and missiles. “It’s a camouflage,” Ahmad Azam, a commander with the rebel Salvation Army, told the Wall Street Journal. “They are leaving in their Hezbollah uniform and they are returning in government regime vehicles and dressed in regular Syrian army uniforms.
