It considered that the civil war serves Israeli purposes - a sectarian swamp in which "Hezbollah" and Iranian powers get involved with "ISIS" and thought that they must have lost a lot of militants during the past three years. Later in the month, the regime's Minister of Military Affairs Avigdor Liberman affirmed that "Israel reserves its complete freedom of action, regardless of any understandings or developments" in the region.

While the agreement removed Iranian-backed militias from near the border, a key Israeli demand, Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi said it did not go far enough.

Israel sees Hezbollah as an advanced Iranian battalion that's part of the conflict over influence in the Middle East and which is nurtured by the expected agreement to stop fighting in Syria while accepting the Iranians' presence there.

"There's reflection here of the understanding that Israel has set red lines, and will stand firm on this", Hanegbi said.

The drone was downed with a Patriot interceptor missile over the Golan demilitarized zone that has separated Israeli and Syrian forces since the ceasefire deal that followed their 1973 war. The regime has built dozens of settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government. "We will not allow the Shiite axis to establish a front command center in Syria".

Satellite maps which have been recently published show how Iran is building a series of small military bases that extend from the suburbs in southern Damascus to Golan.

Following the announcement of the previous ceasefire agreement in southern Syria brokered by the U.S. and Russia, Netanyahu came out against the deal, saying it did not sufficiently address Iran's military ambitions in the area.

Before intercepting the drone, Israel's military contacted Russian counterparts operating over the border to verify that the drone did not belong to the Russians, Haaretz reported.

Israeli security officials said the drone's operators had deliberately attempted to fly the aircraft across the Israeli border from Syria, but the craft was shot down before it crossed into Israel.

Israel opposes any permanent presence in Syria by archenemy Iran and its Hezbollah allies, especially near the Israeli border.
