Israel shoots down Syrian drone approaching Golan Heights

But the Syrian crisis has further chapters.

The leaders are satisfied with the "successful U.S. -Russia" military efforts that have "dramatically accelerated" the group's battlefield losses, according to a joint statement issued after the leaders met briefly on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam. The Russian and Turkish presidents have also met before for the same objective.

The final outcome of the negotiations, which are led by the Russians and the United Nations envoy, aims to suspend the direct fighting between the different parties in Syria.

Following the announcement of the previous ceasefire agreement in southern Syria brokered by the USA and Russia, Netanyahu came out against the deal, saying it did not sufficiently address Iran's military ambitions in the area. The idea of temporary separation is to have these factions stop the fighting and later negotiate a final solution. All these reflect the arrangements for the near future in order to impose a fait accompli despite the worldwide agreement which is expected later. The military existence of Iranians and allies, in this magnitude, is establishing a reality which danger on the region can't be disregarded even more than Israel, which has a massive destructive military force and is an ally of USA that vows to defend it. Israel has been closely watching Iran's involvement in the war in neighboring Syria.

But even if the agreement between the main powers succeeds in putting an end to the fighting, we have to worry about the signs of a new phase of regional confrontations inside and outside Syria.

The pact "does not meet Israel's unequivocal demand that there will not be developments that bring the forces of Hezbollah or Iran to the Israel-Syria border in the north", Hanegbi told reporters Sunday, according to a Reuters report.

The Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) is establishing a long-term existence of its foreign militias and militants in regions ruled by it inside Syria, up to 50 kilometers from the Israeli border with Golan.

Therefore, the new Israeli threats are against Hezbollah in both Lebanon and Syria and they aim to confront the new reality. Moreover, previous Israeli wars against Hezbollah used to be based on the accumulation of weapons at Hezbollah's disposal as well as its deployment, and they used to happen once every 10 years. Regarding Syria, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned of the new reality saying that "when ISIS is expelled from a place, Iran is replacing it". Of course, the reason is clear, which is that the Syrian regime does not have enough military capabilities due to its losses.
