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

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

Russia has not promised to ensure a withdrawal of pro-Iranian forces from Syria, RIA news agency quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Tuesday.

"We have not discussed in detail with our USA colleagues what is going on in the whole territory of Syria, apart from the fact that we have fixed our and Iranian legitimate presence under an invitation of the legitimate Syrian government".

"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.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had intensively lobbied in Moscow and Washington for the agreement to create a 37-50 mile secure buffer zone between Israel and Syria.

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 US army's European Command, and discuss Iranian moves in Syria.

Haaretz reported that IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot secretly flew to Brussels on Thursday to meet with Gen. Curtiss Scaparrotti, head of the United States army's European Command, to discuss Iranian moves in Syria.

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 kilometers of buffer near the Golan" he continued.

"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".

As the war in Syria seems to be winding down in Assad's favor due to Moscow's intervention, Israel fears that Iran will help Hezbollah produce accurate precision-guided missiles and help Hezbollah and other Shiite militias to strengthen their foothold in the Golan Heights.

For this, the secret meeting was interpreted as an Israeli concern from the trio-agreement among Russia, UK and Jordan on cease-fire in south Syria.

A day prior to Friday's revelation saw Netanyahu questioned for four hours - his fifth interrogation in the ongoing investigation - and, according to reports, investigators will seek two additional questioning sessions to clarify the nature of the charges against the embattled politician.
