Russia and Israel 'reach a deal' with Assad on Syrian territory

A Russian air force technician reports to a pilot that a Su-34 bomber is ready for a combat mission at Hemeimeem airbase in Syria

"As a result of this work, which should and will continue, representatives of the armed forces of Syrian Arab Republic should stay on the border with Israel on the Syrian side", the foreign minister said.

He said his regime "started now opening doors for negotiations" with them but "this is the first option". He also referred to the agreement reached between Russian Federation, the USA and Jordan on the de-escalation zone that would see "all non-Syrian forces.withdrawn from the area".

"We never had, and you can not hide it", the Syrian president said.

Assad further urged the USA to "to learn the lesson" from Iraq, saying, "People will not accept foreigners in this region anymore". We don't have any other options, with... He denied reports that Iranians have been killed in Israeli strikes.

"We need the Russian support, but we need at the same time to avoid the American foolishness in order to be able to stabilise our country".

In a tweet the USA leader condemned a "mindless chemical attack" in Syria that killed women and children, called Syrian President an "animal" and delivered a rare personal criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin for supporting the Damascus government. "So, he wanted to represent what he is, and that's normal", Assad told RT.

"We were close to have direct conflict between the Russian forces and the American forces, and fortunately, it has been avoided, not by the wisdom of the American leadership, but by the wisdom of the Russian leadership", he said. "People will not accept foreigners in this region anymore". Asked if he had a nickname for Trump similar to the "animal" comment, Assad replied: "This is not my language, so I can not use similar language".

It was not the first time that Assad has threatened to attack USA troops, but it was his most explicit expression yet of his determination to rid Syria of American forces.

The U.S. blamed the Assad government for the attack, which was launched in a rebel-held area. Israel in recent months ramped up its strikes on reported Hezbollah and Iranian positions and weapons depots inside Syria, sparking fears of a regional war. (As if we didn't have enough on our plates already.) Assad is being backed by both the Russians and Iran.

Assad also sought in his interview to minimize the extent to which his government receives support from Iran.

The Israeli defense minister, accompanied by IDF Chief of Military Intelligence Tamir Heiman and Head of the Political-Military Bureau at Israel's Ministry of Defense Zohar Palti, discussed Iran's military presence in Syria and the escalation at Israel's southern border with Gaza. The terrorists, he said, took aim at Syria's air defenses as their primary target, something that reveals they are serving Israeli interests.
