Israel says it will strike in Syria despite truce

Israel will continue 'acting in Syria', Netanyahu tells US & Russia

The narrative of Iran even wanting a "permanent" presence in Syria seems to be more or less wholly an Israeli creation, based on reports of building at a Syrian military facility somehow being extrapolated to it being an "Iranian base".

The agreement was re-affirmed in the joint Trump-Putin announcement when they met in Vietnam over the weekend.

"I have made it clear to our friends, firstly in Washington and then also in Moscow, that Israel will take actions in Syria, including in southern Syria, according to our understanding and our security needs", he said.

The other part those genius peacemakers at the Pentagon permitted was for Iran's armies to deploy 12 to 3 miles from Israel's border - according to Ha'aretz. "Anyone who has yet to understand that is advised to do so", the country's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said, as quoted by his press service.

The Iranian presence through proxies on Israel's border is seen "as a major strategic threat and - importantly - increasingly as one that can not easily be addressed by a paltry few kilometres of buffer near the Golan", said Mr Schneider. It comes as Damascus aligned forces gain ground while helping the Syrian government battle the Sunni-led rebels.

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. The worldwide community has not recognized Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights.

"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.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he has put the United States and Russian Federation on notice that Israel will continue to take military action across the frontier in Syria, even as the two powers try to build up a ceasefire there.

Attacks have targeted suspected Hizbollah or Iranian arms depots or have come in retaliation for shelling from the Syrian-held Golan.
