Israeli Forces Shoot Down Drone on Syrian Border - IDF

Islamic State militants withdrew from the town and launched a counteroffensive over the past two days.

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

But even if the agreement between the main powers succeeds in putting an end to the fighting, we have to worry about the signs of a new phase of regional confrontations inside and outside Syria.

The leaders are satisfied with the "successful U.S. -Russia" military efforts that have "dramatically accelerated" the group's battlefield losses, according to a joint statement issued after the leaders met briefly on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam. A USA official who requested anonymity said the joint statement shows both leaders back a political solution and peace process.

Several drones were shot down over the Golan Heights earlier, some of which were manufactured in Iran and used by Hezbollah, RIA Novosti reported.

Israel sees Hezbollah as an advanced Iranian battalion that's part of the conflict over influence in the Middle East and which is nurtured by the expected agreement to stop fighting in Syria while accepting the Iranians' presence there.

Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not address the deal, he and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman have long said Israel will not tolerate an Iranian presence along the Golan nor allow Iran to entrench itself military in Syria. Israel has been closely watching Iran's involvement in the war in neighboring Syria.

While largely staying on the sidelines of the Syrian war, Israel has carried out repeated airstrikes against suspected weapons shipments to Hezbollah.

In September, Israel intercepted a UAV after it infiltrated into the demilitarized zone on the Syrian-Israeli border in the Golan Heights.
