Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu Has reportedly told Israeli officials that Moscow has agreed to a buffer zone along the Syrian- Israeli border, where Hezbollah and Iranian forces will not be allowed to enter, Asharq Al-Awsat reported on Wednesday.

Israel has largely stayed out of the fighting in Syria but has carried out dozens of airstrikes on alleged weapons convoys bound for the Iranian-backed Lebanese Hezbollah group.

Bagheri spoke of military cooperation with Syria "in order to fight our common enemies - whether they are the Zionists or the terrorists".

"We drew up the broad lines for this cooperation", Syrian state media cited the Iranian military chief of staff as saying.

Israel's leader is warning Iran that he will not tolerate an Iranian military presence in Syria.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman also responded to the incident and said that any violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel would be met with a determined response.

According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced almost half of the country's pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders. At the heart of those fears is Hezbollah, which battled Israel to a stalemate in a monthlong war in 2006.

Israeli Air Force jets on Monday bombed a Syrian anti-aircraft battery near Damascus after an Israeli plane flying over Lebanon had been fired at. But the Syrian army said it hit an Israeli warplane after it breached its airspace at the Syria-Lebanon border. "We will not change our operating procedures because of shooting or a threat of this type or another".
