The Israeli minister cited previous examples of Israeli airstrikes carried out against Syrian facilities deemed to have been used in attacks on Israel by Iranian forces in Syria.

Friday's agreement came a day after Jordan, which hosts more than 1.4 million Syrian refugees and has shut its northern border, said it had managed to convince the Syrian opposition and the Russians to meet again and reach an agreement for a cessation of hostilities.

Damascus says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups operating inside the Arab country, while the Tel Aviv regime's military carries out such sporadic strikes against Syrian government forces.

Assad's next target in the south-west appears to be rebel-held areas of Quneitra province at the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, where fighting between insurgents and the government escalated on Friday. "Within a short period of time, they will reach the (Nassib) crossing", the non-Syrian commander said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Several witnesses along the Jordan border fence with Syria said they spotted armoured vehicles and a tank with a Russian flag heading to the Nassib crossing, an important trade artery.

The UN refugee agency has urged Jordan to open its borders to the fleeing Syrians.

The bombing barrage sent an estimated 320,000 civilians fleeing the area in what appeared to be one of the fastest displacements in Syria's seven-year civil war, prompting an global outcry and meetings at the United Nations.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the insurgent Democratic Socialist who won a stunning primary upset in NY last week, ran on this issue. Detention and deportation, which grew sharply under President Barack Obama, have also become more common since ICE's creation.

The fighting and air strikes have already driven more than a quarter of million people in southwest Syria from their homes, the United Nations said on Monday, seeking shelter along the frontiers with Jordan and Israel.

The Observatory said an armed group that had controlled some border villages had handed over control to the advancing government forces without putting up resistance.

The rebels will surrender their heavy weapons in exchange for the partial withdrawal of government forces from the area, the observatory added.

Russian Federation has been at the forefront of the Deraa campaign, both bombing and negotiating with rebels who were told at the start of the offensive to expect no help from the United States.

He said Syrian and Russian jets had pummeled towns across the south-west and villages near the border crossing in the past few weeks.

Almost 150 civilians have died since the government assault in the south began two weeks ago, according to the observatory.

But Russia blocked the council from adopting a statement on the issue.
