Israeli Patriot Missile Shoots Down Syrian UAV

The Russian and Turkish presidents have also met before for the same goal.

The drone was intercepted by a Patriot missile in the demilitarised zone between the Israeli-and Syrian-controlled parts of the Golan, a military spokeswoman said in a statement.

"We have determined that it belonged to Syria. We will not allow the establishment of a Shiite front on our border". 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 Iranian and other allied military presence, with all this quantity and depth, establishes a reality that cannot be disregarded as a danger to the region in general rather than to Israel, which has a huge destructive military power and an American ally it can rely on. It thought that the civil war served its interests - a sectarian swamp that would involve Hezbollah and Iranian forces against Daesh, and they all must have lost a significant number of their forces and fighters during the past three years.

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

Furthermore, Israel's Minister for Regional Cooperation Tzachi Hanegbi told reporters after the meeting that the truce deal "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". Pictures show how the IRGC built a series of military bases to become support and funding centers and to represent an Iranian highway between Iraq and Lebanon. That is why the new Israeli threats are against Hezbollah in both Lebanon and Syria. Previous Israeli wars were launched against Hezbollah according to how much the party has piled up weapons and expanded - nearly every ten years.

In the Syrian file, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned of the new reality, saying that "when ISIS is expelled from a place, Iran is replacing it".

Although Iran does not have borders with Syria, it has expanded the most there. If it hadn't been for Russia's air support, Iran's militias would not have expanded and would not have even survived defeat.

Takfiri groups such as ISIS and al-Nusra have never attacked Israel despite operating close to Syria's borders with the occupied Palestinian territories over the past couple of years.
