Russian Federation hints Iranian army should not stay on Israel’s border

Israel maintains a formal policy of non-intervention in the Syrian Civil War but continuously asserts that it will not allow Iran to entrench itself in the country, where it has for years provided military backing to al-Assad alongside Russian Federation.

"[Tehran] openly calls daily for our destruction, the elimination of Israel from the face of the earth, and it practices unmitigated aggression against us and against anyone else in the region", he said while in Cyprus for a summit with the leaders. We can't exactly ask Israel to jump into this battle openly.

Although unconfirmed, the report suggested that Iran had reportedly pledged to stay out of fighting in southwest Syria between Syrian forces and rebel groups.

US President Donald Trump and other Western leaders ordered missile strikes in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in the rebel held enclave of Douma, in Eastern Ghouta. "If not, we're going to resort to. liberating those areas by force", he said, adding "the Americans should leave, somehow they're going to leave".

"We don't have any other options, with the Americans or without the Americans". "This is why our Defense Ministry has been drawing our U.S. counterparts' attention to that fact and they seem to be coming to the same conclusion", the Russian top diplomat noted, adding that he expected practical steps to that end.

It remains unclear, however, under what circumstances the troops will eventually leave and what will happen to their Kurdish allies, who say they are determined to maintain control over the area.

Mr Assad said the United States must learn the lesson of Iraq and leave the country. Iraq is no exception, and Syria is no exception. "People will not accept foreigners in this region anymore".

Lavrov's comments apparently referred to areas including the Syrian Golan Heights region abutting the Israeli Golan Heights and the border with Jordan and indicated that Russian Federation was open to Israeli demands that Iranian forces should be kept far from Israel's borders.

In a tweet the United States leader condemned a "mindless chemical attack" in Syria that killed women and children, called Syrian President an "animal" and delivered a rare personal criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin for supporting the Damascus government.

"We need the Russian support, but we need at the same time to avoid the American foolishness in order to be able to stabilise our country".

But in February, U.S. -led coalition airstrikes killed several Russian private contractors that appeared to be advancing with pro-government forces on a position held by Syrian Kurdish forces in Deir el-Zour.

The three countries remain parties to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, and are scrambling to save the deal's framework.

Assad said Iran's presence in Syria was limited to officers assisting the army.
