Iran's supreme leader accused Israel on Tuesday of sowing dissension and pitting Muslims against one another in Syria.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took to Twitter on Tuesday to denounce the "policy of the enemies of Islam to stir up fratricide and civil war in the Islamic countries."

In an apparent reference to Western-backed rebels in Syria, Khamenei wrote: "Some in the name of Muslims are hand in hand w/devils & consented to be an ally of evil Zionist regime to beat their brothers to ground."

Western analysts believe that Israel is aiding rebels fighting the regime of President Bashar Assad, particularly the secular forces that have made inroads near the border that separates Syria from the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

Israel is especially fearful of a scenario in which Al-Qaeda elements gain the upper hand, hence it is offering quiet support for non-Islamist forces.

The Iranian regime has offered military, financial, and political support to Assad, who has emerged as an important client for Tehran.
