Israeli Security Advisor To Meet Bolton To Coordinate Against Iran

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that only Syrian government troops should have a presence on Syria's southern border, which is close to Jordan and Israel.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has warned US-backed Kurdish forces he would not hesitate to use force to retake the third of the country they control.

The United States, which supports the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, operates air bases and outposts in the Kurdish-administered region.

"If not, we're going to resort to liberate these areas by force", Assad said.

"We were close to have direct conflict between the Russian forces and the American forces", Assad said in the interview.

"They came to Iraq with no legal basis, and look what happened to them".

Israel has claimed that it focused navy infrastructure run by its archfoe Iran, which has been Damascus' different key ally within the battle. Trump has also blamed his predecessor for supporting Syrian rebels trying to oust Assad after a 2011 uprising, saying in 2015 that "Assad may be bad, but we have absolutely no idea who these people are that we're arming".

Responding to Trump's description of him as "Animal Assad", the Syrian leader said: "What you say is what you are". While Israel is ramping up the pressure to force Iran out of Syria, Tehran tries to retaliate in any way it can. And Tehran, which is closely allied with Syrian leader Assad and maintains a working relationship with Russian Federation, is laying the groundwork to develop a long-term presence in the country.

It was not the first time that Assad has threatened to attack US troops, but it was his most explicit expression yet of his determination to rid Syria of American forces.

Seven years after the start of the civil war in Syria and after former defense ministers predicted Assad would not survive, the Butcher from Damascus is getting Syria back nearly in full - with Israel giving the process legitimacy.

In April, the US, UK and France conducted joint airstrikes in Syria in response to reports of a chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma in which dozens of people died, according to rescue workers.

Northeastern Syria, where Syrian Kurds have declared a self-governing autonomous region, is the biggest territory still outside the remit of the government.

The Kremlin says President Vladimir Putin has had a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss the situation in Syria.

General McKenzie said the status quo around Tanf area- where Iran and pro-Assad forces clashed in the past- remains unchanged.

The comments followed Syrian President Bashar Assad's insistence that the USA should leave the Arab Republic.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Tuesday that Israel will take all necessary steps to prevent Iran from establishing a permanent military base in Syria.
