  • Israel will not ‘rule out’ ties with Syrian govt – Defence minister

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu departed on Wednesday for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow to discuss Iran's presence in Syria, Netanyahu's office said.

Media reports on July 11 also said that a compromise appears to be emerging between Russian Federation and the United States that would envisage the deployment of Syrian government forces along the border frontier with Israel, with Iranian and Hizballah troops withdrawing from the area.

The Emek HaYarden region is located southwest of the Golan, near Syria.

Israel seized a large swathe of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in 1981, in a move never recognised by the worldwide community. "The life of the Zionist regime was never in [so much] danger as it is now", the officer added. "These can clash or it can align", said the Israeli official on condition of anonymity. That tactic drew an unambiguous warning to Prime Minister Netanyahu from Sen.

"We were afraid in the beginning to come (because we regarded Israelis) as Zionists and enemies", said one woman, who brought her son for treatment.

Graham seemed to concur with Putin's assessment that the Iranians can't be easily removed at this point, and instead wants to see a strong USA military presence in Syria, too.

US proposes tariffs on $200 billion more in Chinese imports
The move comes just days after the United States and China imposed tit-for-tat tariffs of $34bn on the other countries' goods. Lighthizer's office plans four days of public hearings on the trade actions starting August 20.

Russian Federation is a key ally to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

The IDF spokesperson confirmed in a statement early Thursday morning that Israel attacked three military posts in Syria late Wednesday night. The interception set off sirens on the Golan and nearby Jordanian border.

The military said the drone did not carry weapons and was created to carry out surveillance missions.

"There should be no military forces in the area of separation other than those of UNDOF", a United Nations spokesman said.

There were no immediate reports of casualties, it said. Netanyahu's government has made clear it would not now cede the Golan and has been lobbying for USA recognition of Israel's claim of sovereignty there.

The military said it struck three Syrian posts "in response to the infiltration of the Syrian UAV", or unmanned aerial vehicle.
