The United States and Russia appear to have reached a tacit agreement on a solution for Syria. In practical terms, it amounts to a carte blanche for Russian President Vladimir Putin courtesy of the new U.S. president, Donald Trump. On the ground, Russian and Iranian troops can be observed maneuvering close to the sensitive Golan Heights region. In discreet talks with the Russians in Amman, Jordan, Israeli negotiators requested the establishment of safe areas and the withdrawal of all Iranian forces from Syria. Having such an exclusion zone around the Golan Heights would give the Israeli military freedom to intervene quickly if needed without fear of encountering Russian forces. It would also give the Syrian opposition a sanctuary from which to continue fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and the Iranians.
