  • Smoke following an explosion in Syria is seen from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights near the Israeli Syrian border

The Syrian army is pressing a Russian-backed offensive against rebels in the area. "Go back, we don't want to hurt you", a soldier called out to them.

Israel occupied a large part of this key strategic Syrian land following its 1967 war with Syria and other Arab states.

Now that Dara'a is under the Syrian government's control again, the much reported collaboration between anti-Damascus militants and the Israeli regime would effectively be disrupted.

Both Israel and Jordan have said they would not allow Syrians to cross into their territories.

According to the same sources, regime forces on Sunday attacked the town of Mashara in Syria's eastern Quneitra province, which is situated close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Speculation has been building that Mr. Putin and President Trump may be preparing a deal Monday in their Helsinki summit on the future of Syria as the Bashar Assad government appears close to winning the country's brutal seven-year civil war, a deal that would include the withdrawal of Iranian units that have been backing Mr. Assad. Putin cited the need to restore the situation along the Golan borders to the state that prevailed before the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011.

The crowd, which included women and children, then walked back slowly toward the refugee encampment.

Assad has advanced swiftly, unopposed by his foreign adversaries. Government fighters waved rifles and held aloft pictures of Assad as they celebrated.

The Russian president told reporters during a joint press conference that his U.S. counterpart had raised the issue of Israel's security during their talks.

Still, there are major questions about Putin's ability to enforce any agreement involving Iran's actions in Syria, even if he offers to deploy troops to police the border areas in question.

In addition to retaking the main border crossing between Damascus and the Jordanian capital of Amman, the Syrian regime has retaking dozens of villages in the Daraa province and on Monday clashed with rebels over the strategic Tel al-Haara which overlooks the Golan Heights.

Israel has repeatedly warned that pro-Iranian forces fighting alongside Russian-backed Assad were attempting to stake out a permanent presence in the country, consolidating in southern Syria adjacent to Israel's northern border.

President Donald Trump told reporters on Monday after meeting President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation on Monday in Helsinki that both had agreed to work together on helping ensure Israel's security.
