Morale of Syrians Raised after Retaliatory Attack on Israel: Shamkhani

It’s time to recognize reality on Israel’s Golan claim

"They [the agreements] stipulate that this de-escalation zone should consolidate stability, while all non-Syrian forces must be withdrawn from this area", Lavrov said.

Iran has repeatedly said in the past that it only has advisers in Syria but thousands of Iran-backed groups from Lebanon, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan have played instrumental role in helping government forces regain control of areas held by insurgents.

"Iran's presence does not exist in a military manner on the ground in Syria - these are tales told by Israel".

"We have limited presence in Syria upon the request of the Syrian legal government and to provide the country with advisory help".

Assad's threat to use force against USA allies in Syria and about 2,000 American troops providing them with air support and training prompted a warning from the Pentagon.

Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Muallem said that handing over a list on the names of members in the committee of discussing the current constitution, supported by the Syrian government, to Ambassadors of Russia and Iran in Damascus came in light of an agreement that stipulates for handing the list to the Russian and Iranian sides being guarantor states of Astana track. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White later clarified the U.S. did not want to get involved in Syria's civil war, and would offer protection only in areas where the SDF are fighting the militant Islamic State group. Israel says Iranians are operating in the area near its border and has called for Moscow to keep Iranian forces and their allies away from the frontier.

Israel was said to be a part of the agreement with Russian Federation.

Russian Federation said last week that only Syrian army troops should be on the country's southern border with Jordan and Israel.

There has been no confirmation of a deal between Russia, Israel and Iran however.

He also praised as "glorious" the operation, during which the Syrian army fired dozens of rockets at the occupied Golan Heights in response to the Israeli regime's continued aggression against the Arab country.

Gen. McKenzie spoke shortly after Mr. Assad told the Russian RT news channel in an interview that the estimated 2,000 USA special forces believed to be posted in Syria to combat Islamic State and back up US -allied forces can not stay in Syria.

The official said the recent escalation in Israeli violence against Palestinians results from anger among Israeli leaders whose plans to provoke infighting among Muslim countries have failed.

"We strongly support Russian efforts to drive terrorists out of the Syria-Jordan border and to bring the area under Syrian army control", he added.

Moualem added that that Damascus had communicated with the USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces but no negotiation process had started over the fate of their territory in the north and east.

Scores of Iranian soldiers have been killed in battles with insurgents in Syria, including a number of officers.
