It seems that Israel is clearly dissatisfied with the agreement, since even before Lavrov's announcement, Netanyahu said on Monday, "I have clarified to our friends in Washington and our friends in Moscow that we will operate in Syria, including southern Syria, in accordance with our understanding and in accordance with our security needs".

"We are writing to express our concerns regarding Iranian presence in Syria". Needless to say, the Israeli defense apparatus is unhappy, realizing there is no willingness on the part of the super powers o actually challenge Iran's expansionism in Syria.

The map shows the buffer area almost abutting the town of Quneitra next to the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights. Iran and its Shiite allies have sent forces to back President Bashar Assad, who appears to be on his way to victory after a devastating six-year civil war. But Russia has not promised the withdrawal of Iranian-backed forces from Syria.

The reason for this move, according to Reuters, citing an Israeli official, is to separate between rival factions inside Syria. The US and Russian Federation brokered a ceasefire deal there last July and added a de-escalation agreement last week.

The other part those genius peacemakers at the Pentagon permitted was for Iran's armies to deploy 12 to 3 miles from Israel's border - according to Ha'aretz.

"We maintain absolute freedom of action and the only considerations that guide us are the security considerations of Israel..."

"We urge you to come to Congress with a strategy for Syria that includes how the United States plans to prevent Iran from gaining a permanent foothold on Israel and Jordan's doorstep and to block Iranian arms exports to Hezbollah", the lawmakers concluded.

He was apparently responding to Russia's statement that it viewed Iran's presence in Syria as "legitimate."

While the agreement requires all foreign forces - including Iranian troops and those backed by Tehran - to leave Syria, the deal does not set deadlines for their departure.
