Israel and Jordan kill Islamic State fighters flushed out of Syria

UN peacekeepers return after 4 years to Israel-occupied Golan Heights near Syria

Israel has carried out dozens of strikes in Syria in recent months and been blamed for dozens more, which it has not acknowledged.

A spokesman for Russia's defense ministry said Russian troops will only maintain patrols until the region is stabilized.

Rudskoy said Russian military police have accompanied the peacekeepers on patrols, adding that eight Russian-manned observation points opposite the United Nations points will be set up "to rule out possible provocations".

President Bashar al-Assad's sweeping away of rebels in southwestern Syria has anxious Israel, which last week downed a Syrian warplane that it said breached a Golan buffer zone and warned Iranian forces backing him against deploying there.

The incident took place in the southern part of the Golan Heights, where a demilitarized buffer zone was established between Israel and Syria.

Israel Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman visited northern Israel Thursday, where he said he believes Assad's forces will help maintain calm.

Lieberman reiterated Israel's demand that Iran not set up military bases against it in Syria, nor that Syria be used to smuggle arms to Hezbollah guerrillas in neighbouring Lebanon.

Russian Federation demanded the immediate access by global humanitarian entities to the Rukban refugee camp, where it is suspected that the Pentagon carries out recruitment work among civilians to make up radical groups.

Chief of the Russian General Staff's Main Operations Directorate, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi, reported on Thursday that the control over the Syrian-Jordanian border had been fully restored after an operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces and further assistance from the military police. He said a preliminary assessment was that the infiltrators were Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants.

Israeli forces monitored the militants' movements before carrying out the strike, he said.

Alexander Lavrentyev, Putin's envoy in Syria told state-controlled Sputnik news in Russia the Russian government was taking Israel's security needs in account and claimed the Russians had "managed to attain the pullout of Iranian units 85km from the Israeli border".

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's sweeping away of rebels in southwestern Syria has anxious Israel, which believes it could allow his Iranian backers to entrench their troops close to the frontier.
