Israeli officials "said that they attacked Iranian bases and camps", he said.

"Actually, we had tens of Syrian martyrs and wounded soldiers", he said.

Assad has said that direct conflict between his ally Russian Federation and the United States in Syria was narrowly avoided.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned his government would not allow Iran to maintain a military presence anywhere inside Syria.

According to the independent Arabic news website Elaph, Syrian ‎President Bashar Assad's military is scheduled to ‎carry out large operations in Daraa and Quneitra, in ‎the Syrian Golan Heights, to counter ‎rebel forces in the area.‎.

Assad denied that Tehran had any active troops in Syria and claimed the only Iranians on the Syrian battleground were military advisers.

On Monday, a report published by Haaretz said that Russian Federation was deliberating an approach that would distance Iranian forces and its Shiite allies from the northern border.

In a tweet the United States leader condemned a "mindless chemical attack" in Syria that killed women and children, called Syrian President an "animal" and delivered a rare personal criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin for supporting the Damascus government.

You still need another edge to separate yourself, and the Celtics know they have an opportunity to get that with their depth. That would likely mean Boston giving up one of either Irving or Hayward in a trade for the 2014 NBA Finals MVP.

Rebels control stretches of southwest Syria bordering the Golan Heights, which have been held by Israel since the 1967 Mideast war, while Syrian troops and allied Iran-backed militias also holding nearby territory.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has branded President Donald Trump an "animal", saying US forces should learn the lesson of Iraq and leave the country.

Asked if there was anything Syria could do to stop Israeli air strikes, he said the only option was to improve air defences, "and we are doing that".

Over the past year, Israel has been pledging Russian Federation and the prevent Iran from establishing a military presence in Syria, where Iranian forces are fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's army.

At the same time, the Israeli newspaper "Haaretz", citing its "Western diplomatic sources" says that Russian Federation passed this message from Assad to Israel and that, moreover, this is not the first such case in the last few weeks.

Jordan has always been anxious about the presence of Iranian-backed militias along its border, as has Israel. "The first one: we started now opening doors for negotiations. Somehow they're going to leave", he added.

Syria was gripped by civil war in 2011 and various foreign-backed terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), poured to the Arab country to topple the Damascus government. But Assad has beaten all expectations and now he's threatening to attack the Kurds in the northeastern sector of Syria where they are supported by American troops.

"I will present them (the European leaders) with the latest strategic developments in our region, which are connected to the efforts to halt Iranian aggression in Syria and elsewhere", he said.
