Russian Foreign Minister: Moscow never promised to withdraw Iranian troops in Syria

The US team is in Israel to discuss the ceasefire deal brokered by the US, Russia and Jordan, designed to reach a new cease-fire agreement in southern Syria that will create a "de-escalation zone" adjacent to Israel's border, where Iran and Hezbollah, its terror proxy, will not be allowed to establish a presence.

The Israeli Air Force has carried out numerous airstrikes in Syria on weapons convoys bound for the Iran-backed Hezbollah militia, though it rarely acknowledges individual raids. While a joint American-Russian statement announcing the deal called for "the reduction and ultimate elimination of foreign forces and foreign fighters from the [border region]", Jerusalem fears that such will only apply to radical Sunni rebels battling regime forces, as, in principle, Assad does not consider Iranian-backed troops as "foreign" given their role in effectively saving the Syrian leader.

In televised remarks opening Israel's weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not speak about the new U.S.

Describing Israel's security policy as the "right combination of firmness and responsibility", Netanyahu said Monday that he has "informed our friends in Washington and our friends in Moscow that we will operate in Syria, including southern Syria, in accordance with our understanding and in accordance with our security needs".

Israel signaled on Sunday that it would keep up military strikes across its frontier with Syria to prevent any encroachment by Iranian-allied forces, even as the United States and Russian Federation try to build up a ceasefire in the area.

Israeli media quoted a USA official as saying that all non-Syrian fighters, including Iranian sponsored forces, would be expelled from the area near Israel's border and eventually from all of Syria.
