Walid al-Moualem also said the United States must withdraw from the Tanf base in the southeast. "They [the agreements] stipulate that this de-escalation zone should consolidate stability, while all non-Syrian forces must be withdrawn from this area", Lavrov said. Russian Federation has the ability to protect Iranian forces with its own air force and air defense systems in Syria, but it has opted not to use them to stop Israel.

As news of the deal between Russian Federation and Israel broke, London-based Asharq Al-Awsat reported that Moscow and Tel Aviv agreed to "limit" Iran's military presence in southwestern Syria.

Muallem also said that the presence of USA forces in Syria was illegitimate and they must withdraw from the Syrian territory, including Tanf area in the south.

On Wednesday, Netanyahu told ministers that he had spoken with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo primarily to urge the US government to demand that an evolving agreement on troop deployment in Syria between the US, Russia and Jordan make clear that Iranian forces must leave the whole of the country.

Elsewhere, Shamkhani said that Iran considers Syria's security as its own and that "stability in Syria is an achievement for Iran". Israel says Iranians are operating in the area near its border and has called for Moscow to keep Iranian forces and their allies away from the frontier.

Other senior officials from Iran and Syria claimed Saturday that there was no Iranian military presence in the country.

That would be along Israel and Jordan's borders with Syria.

Mr Assad said he is committed to pushing U.S. forces out of Syria during an explosive interview with Russian broadcaster RT.

Rebel factions hold stretches of Quneitra and Deraa provinces in the southwest, bordering the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, while Syrian army troops and allied forces control nearby territory.

Backed by Russian air power and Iranian and Hizbullah militias on the ground, Assad's forces have gained significant ground in recent months in the seven-year civil war that has killed an estimated half a million people and driven another 5 million overseas as refugees.

"Neither the United States nor Turkey has the right to negotiate over a Syrian city", he said, describing any such deal as "infringing on Syrian sovereignty".

The rocket attacks have continued for two months while Israel has reportedly launched strikes on Iranian positions in Syria.

"Since the beginning of the crisis, Iran has supported Syria in the war against terrorism backed and financed regionally and internationally...[there is] no Iranian military presence [in] the Syrian territories; rather, there are advisers who work by the side of the Syrian Arab Army", Syria's official SANA news agency reported Walim Moallem saying.

"As we have declared earlier, Iranian advisers have no presence in southern Syria", he said.
