During the last few months, Netanyahu has intensively lobbied Russian Federation and the Trump administration for the creation of a secure buffer zone between Israel and Syria, to keep Iranian forces and the Hezbollah terror group away from the Jewish state.

"We are writing to express our concerns regarding Iranian presence in Syria".

On November 11, a Western security official told the BBC that Iran is establishing a permanent base south of Damascus, 30 miles from the Israeli border.

This weekend, a devastating quake rocked parts of Iran and Iraq.

Those distances would range from as little as 5km-7km up to around 30km, depending on current rebel positions on the Syrian Golan, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.

Israeli officials have said little about last week's preliminary agreement, noting only that Israel was not a party to the deal and will defend its interests.

It's worth noting that Facebook already has mechanisms for reporting revenge porn without preemptively sending them the images. Sexually explicit photos, and the threat of publishing them for the world to see, can then be used for blackmail.

"We maintain the right to act freely and the only consideration guiding us is the security of the state of Israel", he said.

He was apparently responding to Russia's statement that it viewed Iran's presence in Syria as "legitimate." We will not allow Syria to become a front line against the state of Israel.

Tel Aviv revealed, Monday, a secret meeting held last week between IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot and US General Curtis Scaparrotti in Brussels - it meant to discuss Iran's dominance in Syria and intention to impose its presence in the region via installing land and navy military bases.

Earlier reports claimed the deal applies to Iranian-backed forces fighting on behalf of the Syrian government, which would be required to leave the border area and eventually Syria.

"Lawmakers and others have singled out Brett McGurk, the special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS, as playing a key role in enabling policies that help arm Iranian backed forces", the website said, using an alternative acronym for the Daesh terrorist group.
