Israel has threatened to open fire at any Syrian government forces that try to deploy in a demilitarised Golan buffer zone set up under a 1974 United Nations -monitored armistice.

The Israeli military said Wednesday that it holds the Syrian regime responsible for what it happens on Syrian territory and warned it against attacking Israeli forces.

The anonymous Israeli official said Russian Federation was working to distance Iranian forces from the Golan and had proposed that they be kept 80 kilometres away but that this fell short of Israel's demand for their full exit along with that of Iranian-sponsored militias.

"We will discuss Syria, we will discuss Iran, we will discuss Israel's security needs", Netanyahu told reporters before leaving.
