Syrian government vows to fight rebels despite U.S. warning

The Israeli and Russian defence ministers, Avigdor Lieberman and Sergei Shoigu, are due to meet on Thursday. The agreement was reportedly reached in December previous year and seeks joint coordination to counter Iran's missile program and its proxy network across the Middle East.

Russian Federation and Israel have allegedly agreed that militias loyal to Iran will be held back so that Assad can retake the region from rebels.

The unconfirmed report said the negotiations were conducted last weekend between Iran's ambassador to Jordan, who was in one hotel room in Amman with Iranian security personnel, while in the next room there were senior Israeli security officials, including the deputy head of the Mossad.

Those strikes followed a barrage of some 32 rockets that were fired by Iranian forces in Syria towards Israel's part of the Golan Heights.
