Israeli officials believe that Russia may be ready to withdraw Iranian troops at least 15 miles from the border between Syria and Israel,
fearing that a fight between Israel and Iranian troops in Syria will be the position of militants serving the loyal to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, has called on Moscow to withdraw all non-Syrian fighters from the Syrian border to Israel and Jordan. At the end of last year, the United States, Russia and Jordan had agreed to create a "de-escalation zone" in southwestern Syria, parts of which border Israel. The violence has been kept in check in the region since then, but the situation has worsened in recent weeks as Israel began to launch strikes against Iranian troops stationed there.
Reports indicate that the Syrian government, reinforced and supported by Russia, is preparing a major offensive against rebel groups in the border area with Israel. Russia and Israel have allegedly agreed to withhold militia loyal to Iran so that Assad can reclaim the region from rebels. If implemented, the agreement would show an unprecedented level of cooperation and agreement between Israel and Russia on how to split Syria.
Israel is vehemently opposed to Iran maintaining a military presence in Syria. And Tehran, which is closely linked to the Syrian leader Assad and has a working relationship with Russia, lays the foundation for a long-term presence in the country. Some experts have warned that Israel's conflict with Iran could trigger a new and dangerous phase of the Syrian civil war.
"Israel, no longer content to remain a spectator while Damascus' position is improving, is now trying to reverse the deterioration in its strategic stance There are huge obstacles to overcome: the regime is more dependent than ever on Iran, which Israel regards as its most ruthless public enemy, and other enemies, especially the Hezbollah and Iran-backed Shia militias, are firmly rooted in Russia's blessing in Syria The US has done little to reverse Iran's profits, despite the shrill rhetoric of the Trump administration, "according to a February report from the International Crisis Group.
"But Israel's hand is not so weak: Russia has given it room to act against Iranian military interests and appears to be more interested in balancing fighting coalitions than in returning every last piece of territory to the control of the Assad regime." , the report continues.
Meanwhile, Israel meets with US officials to discuss the details of a common strategy for dealing with Iran's presence in the Middle East work out. John Bolton, the White House national security adviser, known for being aggressive towards Iran and for regime change, will meet with his Israeli counterpart in Washington on Tuesday to discuss the two countries' policies. The two men are reportedly ratifying an agreement to deal with the Iranian missile program and defeating its network of proxy fighters scattered throughout the Middle East. You can also discuss how the US and Israeli forces can work together to defeat Iran militarily.
