Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the global community.

The Israeli air force late Wednesday struck the militants as they crossed into Israeli-controlled territory with weapons, military officials said.

"As the situation stabilizes, these posts will be handed over to Syrian government forces", Rudskoy told reporters.

An Israeli airstrike killed armed Islamic State operatives in the Syrian Golan Heights.

For quiet to hold, Lieberman said, Syria must abide by a 1974 UN-monitored armistice that set up demilitarized zones on the Golan.

The Syrian conflict erupted in 2011 and Russian intervention in 2015 helped to turn the tide in President Bashar al-Assad's favour.

"In Syria, as far as we are concerned, the situation is returning to the previous one before the civil war-meaning there is a clear address, there is responsibility and there is a central government", Lieberman said while touring northern Israel. The UN mission was also unable to access a refugee camp in Israel via Syria.

Israel has been blamed for previous attacks on a suspected Iranian military base in the el-Kisweh area.

A day before the joint Russia-U.N. patrols, Russian Federation announced it reached an agreement with Israel to keep pro-Iranian fighters 85 kilometers (53 miles) from the volatile frontier.

He declined to say specifically where they were located, but said it was in the southern Golan, near the Jordanian border. He said a preliminary assessment was that the infiltrators were Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants.

One report quoted Israeli military sources as saying the Israel Air Force had "no operation" on Thursday night.

Israeli troops were on "high alert and readiness" following the strike.

Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed Shiite militias reportedly played a key role in re-capturing the region along the border despite Russian assurances they would be kept away from the Israeli border and denials by the Assad regime the Iranian trained and funded forces were taking part in the battle.
