USA to take 'firm, appropriate measures' against Syria violations

Israel has attacked Iranian-backed Shi'ite Muslim militias in Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday, casting such actions as potentially helping to stem a Syrian Sunni Muslim refugee exodus to Europe.

Since past year, a "de-escalation" deal brokered by Russian Federation, the United States and Jordan has contained fighting there.

The United States has also warned the government it would take "firm and appropriate measures" in response to any violations of the southwest de-escalation zone.

There has been speculation that Iran might pull its forces back from near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in some kind of settlement.

"We were faced with two options. reconciliation or liberation by force".

Lebanese media claimed that Russian Military Police were stationed at the border prior to acquiring clearance from Hezbollah, which fought hard in 2013 alongside the Syrian Army to liberate the area from deeply-entrenched Salafi-jihadist forces that hoped to cleanse the border of its Shia population and extend the civil war into Lebanon.

This is done in a way that the artillery and air force of this regime are working as the artillery and air force of the terrorists, he underlined.
