U.S. security team in Israel to discuss Syrian border deal

U.S. security team in Israel to discuss Syrian border deal

Israel on Sunday did not offer an official response to the tripartite agreement produced by Russian Federation, the USA and Jordan regarding on a cease-fire in southern Syria.

"If you look at who is the greatest danger, it's just the wards of the United States, various foreign terrorists, militants who are attached to those groups of armed opposition that the U.S. supports", Lavrov said. Russia, which views Iran as a key player in resolving the crisis in Syria, has repeatedly emphasized the importance of the role that the Islamic Republic plays in the war-torn country.

Israel has largely stayed out of the war but has struck suspected weapon convoys to Hezbollah.

Included in the investigation are accusations that Netanyahu - the country's 9th prime minister and the first to be born on Israeli soil - demanded that then-US Secretary of State John Kerry expedite US visas for friends; facilitated the sale of an Israeli media outlet to a business associate under favorable terms, and received a large block of tickets to a performance by US pop star Mariah Carey through an Australian intermediary in exchange for advantageous business terms, according to Haaretz.

"I have clarified to our friends in Washington and our friends in Moscow that we will operate in Syria, including southern Syria, in accordance with our understanding and in accordance with our security needs", Netanyahu said, describing Israel's security policy as "the right combination of firmness and responsibility".

Meanwhile, a delegation of the U.S. National Security Council has arrived in Israel for a meeting with Israeli counterparts on Tuesday that will focus on Iran and the situation in southern Syria. Israel has long pressed Moscow, the leading player in the conflict since militarily intervening on behalf of the Assad regime in September 2015, to create a buffer zone of up to 50 km in the Syrian Golan Heights in which Shiite proxies backed by Tehran would be banned. It comes after Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin reaffirmed joint efforts to support a ceasefire in the Syrian region bordering Israel and Jordan.

Army Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Eisenkot reportedly flew to Brussels in secret on Thursday to meet with Gen. Curtiss Scaparrotti, head of the USA army's European Command, and discuss Iranian moves in Syria.

According to the minister, Russian Federation and the United States discussed in detail only mechanisms of functioning of the de-escalation area in south-western Syria.
