  • US warns against attacking its troops after Assad says they’ll leave Syria ‘one way or another'

"The US administration wants to continue exerting pressures on the regime", Asharq Al-Awsat quoted Western diplomats as saying. "Iran's presence is legitimate as it is based on the request of the Syrian government, unlike the presence of the United States", Muallem stressed.

Iranian forces and those of its proxy, Hezbollah, are preparing to leave southern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

Israel agreed not to attack Syrian regime targets, the report said. As part of the deal, Russian Federation is also demanding the withdrawal of all foreign forces - including Iranian, American and Turkish forces - from Syrian territory.

Iran has pledged that it would punish Israel for the deadly air raid.

Al-Moallem denied reports that an agreement was reached between regional and other powers over the situation of southwestern Syria where the country's Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are located. "At this point, I cannot answer if it is being realized, but as far as I understand, the parties that were involved in reaching an agreement are satisfied with what they have achieved". This channel though was primarily to warn Russia's military when Israel launched airstrikes on convoys and shipments of arms to Hezbollah. However, neither Jerusalem, nor Moscow, publicly acknowledged any agreement between the sides regarding Iran's military presence in Syria.

"The dialogue with Russian Federation will continue", Liberman added.

Troiano added, "I keep hearing this, you know, 'She's just a woman, she's just a woman.' She's a combatant at that point". Wildwood police have released body camera footage of the controversial arrest on the beach over Memorial Day weekend.

Russian Federation has said that only Syrian army troops should be at the southern border with Jordan and Israel, which has waged air strikes in Syria to curb what it fears is Iran's expanding influence. In the a year ago, Netanyahu and his top ministers have stepped up diplomacy with Moscow to make the strategic case that it's not in Russia's interest to allow Iran to turn Syria into a client state like Lebanon, according to US and Israeli officials. Syria says there are no "Iranian troops". But US support for them has been winding down. On May 10, a day after Trump announced the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, Iran and Israel exchanged strikes, with Israel hitting major Iranian infrastructure inside Syria.

Speaking with reporters, Muallem linked talks on the future of the country's southern region with the US' withdrawal from its base in al-Tanf, established in 2016.

More than 2,000 United States troops are now in Syria fighting alongside the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the northeast as well as in the enclave of At-Tanf in the south along the Jordanian border.

Assad told Russian TV Thursday that Syria had no Iranian troops on its soil. "If it does not work, that's a different conversation", he told a news conference in Damascus.

The official said the recent escalation in Israeli violence against Palestinians results from anger among Israeli leaders whose plans to provoke infighting among Muslim countries have failed. It puts out rumors that the Iranian-backed militias called the National Defense Forces will be disbanded. He is due to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, and UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
