Israel shoots down Syrian drone approaching Golan Heights

The Russian and Turkish presidents have also met before for the same objective. The idea of temporary separation is to have these factions stop the fighting and later negotiate a final solution.

"There is no military solution to the conflict in Syria", according to the statement.

Elsewhere in his comments, the Israeli minister said that Tel Aviv had "set red lines" and that it would stand "firm" on them, alluding to the Israeli military strikes in Syria, carried out against suspected Hezbollah arms depots or in retaliation for attacks launched from the Syrian-controlled Golan.

According to reports, the deal includes Iranian proxies fighting on behalf of Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, which would be required to leave the border area and eventually Syria. The military presence of Iran and its allies, in this magnitude, is establishing for a reality which threatens the entire region in general as well as Israel that has massive destructive military power and whose American ally vows to defend.

Yet, even if major forces agree upon suspending fights, we should be anxious about the new stage indicators of regional confrontations inside and outside Syria.

Israel has warned that it will not accept a permanent presence of Iran or its allied militias near its border in postwar Syria.

Therefore, the new Israeli threats are against Hezbollah in both Lebanon and Syria and they aim to confront the new reality.

On the ground, meanwhile, 50 civilians, including 20 children, have died in artillery fire and Russian bombardment of two displacement camps and surrounding territory in eastern Syria since late Friday night, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group said Sunday.

Jordan would have also been threatened by the Iranian marching towards its borders from Daraa, if it hadn't been for the U.S. warnings. If it hadn't been for the Russian air support, the Iranian militias wouldn't have expanded and wouldn't have survived defeat.

This is the reality, and I do not know how the agreement for ending the war in Syria would tackle it; an agreement that would finish the presence of terrorist groups such Daesh, Nusra and Ahrar Al-Sham, but fail to rid Syria from more risky regional militias. The agreement only ends the presence of terrorist groups like ISIS, al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham but it will fail in ridding Syria of the more risky regional militias.
