US, Russia, Jordan Agreement Permits Iranian Positions 3 Miles from Israeli Border

Israel will continue 'acting in Syria', Netanyahu tells US & Russia Israel says it will strike in Syria despite truce

The U.S., Russian Federation and Jordan on Saturday reportedly reached a cease-fire deal for southern Syria that will establish a buffer zone near Israel's border, where Iran and its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah will not be allowed to operate.

"We are controlling our borders, we are protecting our country and we will continue to do so", Netanyahu said in remarks to members of his right-wing Likud party Monday, as quoted by Reuters.

The statement came as officials from the US National Security Council flew into Israel for talks with security heads, primarily over the US-Russia agreement regarding Syria and Iran's growing clout in the region.

"I have also informed our friends, firstly in Washington and also our friends in Moscow, that Israel will act in Syria, including in southern Syria, according to our understanding and according to our security needs".

Israel regards Iran and its close ally, Lebanese Shia militant group Hezbollah, as its most risky foes.

"The offer was not rejected", ICRC spokeswoman in Jerusalem Alyona Synenko told AFP, after Israeli media said Iran had turned down the offer through the Red Cross.

Israel's military has said it has carried out around 100 strikes in Syria. Those have targeted suspected Hezbollah or Iranian arms depots, or have been in retaliation for shelling from the Syrian-held Golan Heights.

While the agreement requires all foreign forces - including Iranian troops and those backed by Tehran - to leave Syria, the deal does not set deadlines for their departure.

Today (Wednesday), Shaykh Muwaffak Tarif, the spiritual leader of the Druze community in Israel, officially requested an urgent meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in light of recent events in the Golan Heights. "We recently returned from the region, where we heard concerns from our close ally, Israel, about Iranian operations in Syria", some 43 congressmen said in the letter.

"I think that this growing closeness and consultation is first and foremost good for security and ultimately for peace", he added.
