Israeli Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot has been holding discussions with the US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, focusing on the situation in Syria’s south and Iran’s military activity in the region, Israeli media reported.
“The US and Israel enjoy a strong relationship between their armies as main partners committed to security and stability in the region,” JPost quoted a statement by Israeli occupation army.
“The two senior officials primarily discussed Israel’s concern about the new evolving situation in southwest Syria after Assad completes his takeover of most of the rebel-held territories in the area in the upcoming weeks,” Ynet reported, referring to President Bashar al-Assad and terrorists respectively.
Eisenkot and Dunford have also coordinated ways to prevent Iran from entrenching in the territories Assad’s army is recapturing, according to Ynet.
