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.
