  • Patriot missile intercepts drone on Israel's border with Syria

"We have proved that before and we will prove it again in the future", Katz said.

"There is no military solution to the conflict in Syria", according to the statement. Had it not been for the Russian air cover, the Iranian militias would not have been able to advance; rather, they would have faced nearly certain defeat.

The leaders reaffirmed the importance of de-escalation zones as an interim measure to reduce violence in Syria and called upon all United Nations member states to increase their contributions to meeting humanitarian needs.

The agreement, announced in a US-Russian statement Saturday, affirms a call for "the reduction, and ultimate elimination" of foreign fighters from southern Syria. It considered that the civil war serves Israeli purposes - a sectarian swamp in which "Hezbollah" and Iranian powers get involved with "ISIS" and thought that they must have lost a lot of militants during the past three years.

Israel has warned that it will not accept a permanent presence of Iran or its allied militias near its border in postwar Syria.

Israel used a Patriot missile to shoot down a drone approaching the Golan Heights on the border with Syria on Saturday, the Israel Defense Forces said.

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

Israel has long complained about the involvement of its archenemies Iran and Hezbollah in the Syria war.

The Israeli military says it has shot down an unmanned aircraft that attempted to infiltrate Israeli airspace from neighbouring Syria.

This is the reality, which I don't know how the agreement to end war in Syria will handle.

The prime minister said that while the plan aimed to keep Iran 20 kilometers (12 miles) away from the Israeli border, it did not address Iran's plans to cement its presence in Syria, which, he said, included the establishment of a naval and air force bases.

On the ground, meanwhile, 50 civilians, including 20 children, have died in artillery fire and Russian bombardment of two displacement camps and surrounding territory in eastern Syria since late Friday night, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group said Sunday.
