Israel shoots down drone over Golan Heights

Also over the weekend, the Israel Defense Forces shot down a Syrian drone above the Golan Heights, as it approached the border with Israel.

"We will not allow the Shi'ite axis to establish Syria as its forefront base", Lieberman said.

All these express near-future arrangements to impose a fait accompli despite the expected global agreement.

Israel fears an eventual Assad victory could leave Iran with a permanent garrison in Syria, extending a threat posed from neighbouring Lebanon by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah and has been lobbying Russian Federation and the United States for reassurances that Iranian and Hezbollah forces will not be allowed to deploy near its border or set up bases within Syria.

Israel, like other countries in the region, underestimated the Iranian infiltration into Syria.

Israel signaled Sunday that it would keep up military strikes across its frontier with Syria to prevent any encroachment by Iranian-allied forces, even as the United States and Russian Federation try to build up a cease-fire in the area. Photos show how the Revolutionary Guards built a series of military bases to be centers of support and financing that will operate as an Iranian highway that extends from Iraq to Lebanon. The aim of these threats is to confront the new reality. The UAV was hit and exploded over Syrian territory, and fell in several pieces inside Syria.

"We have a clear policy", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after the strike last month. Israel, Turkey and Iraq all have borders with Syria and are directly involved in the details of the solution and the forces from local and foreign militias that would control the lands.

Iran has no borders with Syria, yet it is the country with the most active military action and is the most expanding. If it hadn't been for Russia's air support, Iran's militias would not have expanded and would not have even 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 existence of terrorist groups such as ISIS, al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham, but will fail in ridding Syria of more risky regional militias.
