Israel Says It Downed Russian-Made Syrian Spy Drone Over Golan Heights

Patriot missile intercepts drone on Israel's border with Syria

But even if the agreement between the main powers succeeds in putting an end to the fighting, we have to worry about the signs of a new phase of regional confrontations inside and outside Syria. But he stressed that Israel is not a party to the agreement and will defend its interests.

"If this works, this is an auspicious signal, would be an auspicious signal, that our policy objective - the objective that I think so many of us share, of getting these guys out of Syria ultimately - that there's a path in that direction", the official said.

Israel sees Hezbollah as an advanced Iranian battalion that's part of the conflict over influence in the Middle East and which is nurtured by the expected agreement to stop fighting in Syria while accepting the Iranians' presence there.

"There's reflection here of the understanding that Israel has set red lines, and will stand firm on this", Hanegbi said.

However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his televised remarks opening Israel's weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, did not elaborate on the new Washington-Moscow arrangement for Syria. The regime has built dozens of settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government. It admits the failure of the military solution, but the most unsafe thing about it is that it accepts the temporary geographic distribution of Syria between four foreign parties which are Russian Federation, the US, Iran and Turkey.

Repeating Israel's warnings to Iran and Hizbollah, Lieberman said: "We will not allow the Shiite axis to establish Syria as its forefront base".

Satellite maps which have been recently published show how Iran is building a series of small military bases that extend from the suburbs in southern Damascus to Golan. According to initial reports of the event, the drone belonged to the Syrian army and was being used for intelligence purposes.

In the latest incident, Israel announced on Saturday that its military, using a Patriot missile, had intercepted and shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) purportedly operated by the Syrian Air Force in the Golan Heights, adding that it was checking whether the aircraft had any connection "to Iran and Hezbollah".

It was not immediately clear if the drone had reached the Israeli-controlled side of the Golan when it was shot down.
