Russian, Israeli defense chiefs discuss southern Syria in Moscow

Russian Federation said on Monday that only Syrian army troops should be at the southern border with Jordan and Israel.

There are worldwide agreements that all non-Syrian forces must leave the zone, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters in Moscow, adding that Russia has been working on the issue with the United States and Jordan.

"The Americans should leave somehow". They had not been replaced, he added.

The Syrian leader is in the process of asserting his authority over the last few pockets of opposition-held territory after seven years of warfare during which vast areas of the country slipped out of government control. The Kurds style this region as semi-autonomous, though they never finished negotiating the details of that autonomy with the central government. The United States maintains about 2,000 troops there, helping a local Kurdish-led militia battle the Islamic State militant group.

While Assad is militarily unassailable in the Syrian conflict, swathes of territory at the frontiers with Iraq, Turkey and Jordan and Israel remain outside his control.

Months after an alleged chemical attack by government forces prompted US President Donald Trump to call the Syrian president "Animal Assad" in a tweet, Assad said he had no nickname for Trump.

The United States, which supports the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, operates air bases and outposts in the Kurdish-administered region.

Ronaldo said in December that he wanted a raise after helping Real win the Club World Cup. After the match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp adressed the injury.

In his warning, Assad invoked the US experience in Iraq, where USA troops quickly faced a widespread insurgency. He denied reports that Iranians have been killed in Israeli strikes.

Israeli officials view a USA withdrawal with trepidation, as they consider the American presence there to be a buffer, preventing Iranian forces in Iraq and Syria from joining hands. Iraq is no exception, and Syria is no exception. "People will not accept foreigners in this region anymore".

Russian Federation has managed to maintain close relations with regional rivals Israel and Iran as it provides decisive military support for the Assad regime in Syria's multi-sided civil war.

Striking targets in Syria and threatening to assassinate the leader on the pretext of fighting Iranian influence is a sign that Israel is in "panic" after losing its "dear" terrorist assets, President Bashar Assad told RT.

It is understood that, for its part, Israel agreed to accept the return to the border of soldiers loyal to Assad'd regime; while Russian Federation will guarantee that no Iranian or Hezbollah forces return to the area.

And the Russian agreement with Israel allegedly includes a call by Moscow for a USA withdrawal in step with an Iranian exit.

"We don't have Iranian troops", Assad said.
