The Israeli Jerusalem Post claims that “after months of diplomacy between Jerusalem and Moscow, the two sides reached an understanding that Iran should be kept away from Israel’s northern border with Syria, Channel 2 News reported on Monday evening.”
According to the report, “Israel and Russia agreed the Syrian army will be allowed to re-take control of southern Syria up to the border with Israel. Iran and Hezbollah, though, will not be permitted to take part in the takeover.”
Kevork Almassian discusses this report by elaborating the upcoming offensive of Daraa and its implications on the Syrian conflict.
