Syrian Army chief: Syria-Iran ties are strategic

"We are in Damascus to assert and coordinate and cooperate to confront our common enemies, the Zionists and terrorists".

According to the SANA news agency, the Iranian general said at the meeting that his visit to Damascus was aimed at developing a joint strategy for coordination and military cooperation with Syria at the next stage, following huge successes achieved on the front line.

For his part, the Syrian president appreciated the all-out support extended to his respective country by Iran's Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and the people and government of the country to counter terrorism in Syria.

Based on what Asharq Al-Awsat attributes to the Israeli diplomat, Shoygu told Israel that the 40-kilometer demand was "exaggerated" and "superfluous", and that Iranian backed forces have not approached the Israeli border since Russian forces entered Syria.

Baqeri arrived in Syria on October 17 accompanied by several other senior Iranian military figures.

Justice League works as a prequel to Aquaman, according to Jason Momoa
At the time, nobody at Warner Bros., including director Zack Snyder , could have imagined how divisive the movie would be. He's also the one who built the actual Aquaman costume, which Momoa has nothing but positive things to say about.

Tehran would not tolerate violations of Syrian sovereignty by Israel, Bagheri stressed, vowing that the two countries would jointly fight against Syria's enemies.

Israel's air force says it has struck arms convoys of the Syrian military and Hezbollah almost 100 times during the war.

Bagheri's comments came a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in Jerusalem for discussions on Iran and security coordination in Syria.

The consensus at this point is that escalation is unlikely, he said, given that none of the principals are desirous of a major conflict involving Israel.

"Our job is to prevent war, and you do that through deterrence". "We will not change our operating procedures because of shooting or a threat of this type or another".
