Netanyahu May Offer Putin US Sanctions Relief for Ousting Iran From Syria

The IDF knocked down an enemy drone over the Kinneret on Wednesday, using a Patriot missile.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian Federation on Wednesday that Israel does not intend to threaten Bashar al-Assad's regime and asked Moscow to work to remove Iranian forces from Syria, an Israeli official said.

According to Netanyahu's office, the prime minister "made it clear that Israel will not tolerate a military presence by Iran or its proxies anywhere in Syria and that Syria must strictly abide by the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement". A Patriot missile shot down the drone, after it set off air-defence sirens on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and the Jordanian border, Reuters reported.

This is the second time in a month that Israel has intercepted a drone flying in from Syria.

There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military. The army said it will "not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt our civilians".

Russian Federation was already working to distance Iranian forces from areas of Syria near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and had proposed that they be kept 80 km (50 miles) away but this fell short of Israel's demand for a full exit, the official said.

Meanwhile, Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also left for Moscow on Wednesday for a meeting with Putin.

Israel has been on high alert as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces advance on rebels near the Golan Heights and Jordan.

Asked by a reporter if he anticipated a time when the Quneitra crossing would be reopened under the United Nations -monitored armistice between Israel and Syria, and whether the two old enemies could establish "some kind of relationship", Lieberman said: "I reckon we are a long way from that, but we are not ruling out anything".
