Israeli Forces Shoot Down Drone on Syrian Border - IDF

Israeli Forces Shoot Down Drone on Syrian Border - IDF

The U.S. official said additional agreements with Jordan had strengthened one zone in the south. It thought that the civil war served its interests - a sectarian swamp that would involve Hezbollah and Iranian forces against Daesh, and they all must have lost a significant number of their forces and fighters during the past three years.

Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz speaks during an interview with The Associated Press, in his office in Tel Aviv, Israel, November 9, 2017. The Iranian and other allied military presence, with all this quantity and depth, establishes a reality that cannot be disregarded as a danger to the region in general rather than to Israel, which has a huge destructive military power and an American ally it can rely on.

Rami Abdurrahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Omar Abu Laila, a Europe-based opposition activist originally from Syria's eastern province, said Saturday that Islamic State fighters are now once again in full control of the town.

While the agreement removed Iranian-backed militias from near the border, a key Israeli demand, Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi said it did not go far enough.

Israel sees "Hezbollah" as an advanced Iranian battalion that is part of the conflict over influence in the Middle East and is nurtured by the expected cease fire that will approve the presence of Iranians in Syria.

"There's reflection here of the understanding that Israel has set red lines, and will stand firm on this", Hanegbi said.

The reports on the new ceasefire agreement came after the BBC published satellite photos on Friday said to show the construction of a permanent Iranian military base in Syria.

Although Iran does not have borders with Syria, it has expanded the most there.

In the latest incident, Israel announced on Saturday that its military, using a Patriot missile, had intercepted and shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) purportedly operated by the Syrian Air Force in the Golan Heights, adding that it was checking whether the aircraft had any connection "to Iran and Hezbollah".

The official speaker of the army of Israel Yonatan Conicus refuted the statement saying that the downed drone belonged to Russian Federation.

It was not immediately clear if the drone had reached the Israeli-controlled side of the Golan when it was shot down.
