Syria Vows to Fight Rebels Despite US Warning

Separate reports suggest Israel has agreed not to get involved so long as Russian Federation can keep Iranian and Hezbollah forces out of the area.

Russian Federation and Israel have come to an extraordinary agreement over the role of Iranian troops in Syria, paving the way for a regime offensive against one of the last remaining rebel-held areas in the south of the country.

The move comes as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepares to discuss Iran with several European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, and UK Prime Minister Theresa May, next week. In short, the Iranian presence in Syria should be eliminated in its entirety.

After liberating the entirety of Damascus city and the broader province from an array of hardline Islamist militant groups, including the Daesh* terrorist group, the Syrian Army and other government forces are set to launch a major offensive in southern Syria, near the Arab Republic's border with Israel.

The territory is covered by a ceasefire agreement signed past year between the US, Russia and neighbouring Jordan.

Israel's has long said it would not allow Iran to gain a permanent military foothold in Syria.

The unconfirmed report said the negotiations were conducted last weekend between Iran's ambassador to Jordan, who was in one hotel room in Amman with Iranian security personnel, while in the next room there were senior Israeli security officials, including the deputy head of the Mossad.

"The Syrian Army has always acted in the interests of the Syrian people and doesn't need permission from America or Trump to eliminate terrorists in any part of the country". The report said a Jordanian mediator carried messages between the sides.

Furthermore, they said that Israel made clear to the Iranians they should not become involved in fighting close to the Israel-Syria ceasefire lines in the Golan and the Israel-Jordan border.

According to the report, Israel's Defense Ministry underlined Israel's view that the Iranian presence should be entirely eradicated from Syria, not only militarily and not only from the southern part of the country, but also from an economic standpoint as well.
