The Russian Military Police has set up checkpoints and observation posts in the southwest de-escalation zone as well as one covering the Golan Heights.

According to Col.-Gen. Sergei Rudskoy, Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff, Russian forces established two checkpoints and 10 watch posts on July 21 and July 22 “along the approved areas of lines of contact” between militants and government forces.

“It is to be stressed that the nearest watch post is 13 kilometers from the separation zone between Israel and Syria, near the Golan Heights. The zone has been approved in accordance with the international agreements,” Rudskoy said during the briefing on Monday.

The Russian general added that Moscow had informed Israel, the United States and Jordan about the deployment.

Meanwhile, Israel has shown its concern over the Russian actions in the area.

Earlier Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that Israel opposes a ceasefire agreement between the US and Russia that has alloed to esbalish safe zones in southern Syria. Netanyahu added that Israel will not tolerate Iranian or Hezbolalh presence in the border area.

In other words, Tel Aviv once again showed that it was not interested in any kind of cessation of hostilities that may lead to a stabilization of the situation in Syria.

    The Israelis should boot their PM and his stupid circle of ministers and ally-up with Syria. They could be much better friends than enemies.

      Israel should mind its own business and give the land back to the Palestinians and dismantle apartheid.

        As much as I agree with you, I can’t imagine it happening.

  • Expo Marker

    Israel knows if an attack is launched, and Russians were specifically targeted in the area, Israel would be “wiped off the face of the Earth”.

      Hopefully. But what did Russia against Turkey when they brought down a russian pilot?

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        They made them their allies and conveniently showed Turkey where they stood with EU and the US, why fight when you can win through not firing a shot.

        When Turkey brought down a Russian pilot and murdered him Russia killed about 50,000 ISIS Turkey backed Terrorists. Stopped the flow of stolen Syrian oil to Ankara. Knocked Turkey out of NATO. Broke the back of the Anglo-Zionist dream of global hegemony and stopped Israel from expanding.

          Yes thank you FK.

      Finally and not a moment too soon. And most of of the planet would say ‘thanks’.

    Netanyahu, Should the world the deportation of most of the native Palestinian population (not speaking of the murder of many), their replacement with Zionist colonists and the oppression and apartheid of the remaining Palestinians who escaped deportation?

  • FlorianGeyer

    Israel is very very concerned and deeply deeply worried that their wet dreams of an apartheid jew state are being ruined. The worlds professional victims will one day be real victims. I just hope that none of their refugees are settled near me as house prices would drop :)

    • ruca

      Hah! Wonderful! “the world’s professional victims”. That they are.

  • Cyrus

    It’s stupid for the world to gang up against Israel. The Russians and any one else can set up bases wherever they want around Israel but these are useless outpost that will accomplish nothing in the end

    Jews are on the cusp of ‘discovering’ that they are not Semites.

    Sanity at last , Israel and Syria both drill wells for the Golan Heights oil .
    Syria’s wells are guarded by Russians , and they all get rich .
    Why fight , when you can have a good time !
    Israel and Syria will become as wealthy as Qatar and Saudi Arabia .

      You never make deals with Israel. You always end up coming off being cheated and betrayed. if Assad betrays Iran and works with israel, he will be an absolute asshole.

  • Z54

    Well now, the Russians evidentially know where the Amerikan bases in Syria are now, thanks to a little bird called Turkey. They can also keep track on Israeli flights coming over the border and ISIS troop movements coming out of the Golan Heights! Sweet.

  • Brigitte Turkmani

    Das ist nicht bedenklich das die Russische Armee die Golan Hohen Kontrolliert und es muss auch für Israel nicht bedenklich sein, die Aktion. Oder was hat Israel zu verbergen – kann Israel aus diesem Grund – zur Zeit keine Aktionen Starten – das sollte bedenklich sein. Denn diese Aktionen waren in den letzten Jahren immer wieder.

    If syria wants iran or hezbolah within its borders then its no one else’s business!
