A senior Israeli official yesterday confirmed that Israel has threatened to destroy all Iranian facilities and thwart any Iranian activity within 40 kilometers of the Syrian Golan Heights, Kuwait’s Al-Jarida newspaper reported.
The unnamed official was commenting on indirect talks between the US, Russia and Iran on the establishment of a buffer zone between Israel, Lebanon and Syria.
According to the official, Syrian regime President Bashar Al-Assad conveyed a message to Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, through Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which he said that Damascus is ready to negotiate a demilitarized zone of up to 40 kilometers from the border in the Golan Heights and grant Kurds and Druze autonomy as part of a comprehensive agreement between the two countries only if Israel does not work to remove his regime from power.
After the visits, the official said, Putin contacted international players including Netanyahu who said that he would discuss Al-Assad’s proposal with Israeli security agencies while stressing the need to withdraw Hezbollah and Iranian forces from Syria.
