Israel downs Syrian drone over Golan

Israeli forces look out over the border fence between the Israeli-occupied side of the Golan Heights and Syria

But the Syrian crisis has further chapters. The Russian and Turkish presidents have also met before for the same objective.

They agreed on the failure of the military solution and on the necessity of a peaceful one. Meanwhile, Iran and Israel are preparing for the next phase.

The latest outcome of negotiations, led by Russians and United Nations envoy, is to suspend the direct fight between different parties in Syria.

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

The concept behind temporary division is that these forces would cease fire and later negotiate a final solution. All of these facts point to near-future arrangements that aim to impose facts on the ground regardless of the worldwide agreement expected later on. But he stressed that Israel is not a party to the agreement and will defend its interests.

Like the rest of the region, Israel underestimated in the beginning the Iranian infiltration in Syria.

Rocket launch scheduled for Sunday morning
Should skies remain clear, it was predicted the rocket launched would be seen from as far north as Boston to as far south as SC . The Orbital ATK Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus cargo spacecraft will now attempt to blast off on Sunday at 7:14 a.m.

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.

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. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards have been building for a long presence for its forces and militias of foreign fighters in the areas under its control, and which extend to about 50 km on the borders of Israel in the Golan.

Therefore, the new Israeli threats are against Hezbollah in both Lebanon and Syria and they aim to confront the new reality. Previous Israeli wars were launched against Hezbollah according to how much the party has piled up weapons and expanded - nearly every ten years.

However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his televised remarks opening Israel's weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, did not elaborate on the new Washington-Moscow arrangement for Syria.

While largely staying on the sidelines of the Syrian war, Israel has carried out repeated airstrikes against suspected weapons shipments to Hezbollah. If it hadn't been for American warnings, Jordan would have been threatened with Iranian militias marching towards its borders from Daraa.

Following the announcement of the previous ceasefire agreement in southern Syria brokered by the U.S. and Russia, Netanyahu came out against the deal, saying it did not sufficiently address Iran's military ambitions in the area. If it hadn't been for Russia's air support, Iran's militias would not have expanded and would not have even survived defeat.
