The Golan Heights was illegally captured by Israel in 1967 and annexed in 1981.

According to Netanyahu's office, the prime minister "made it clear that Israel will not tolerate a military presence by Iran or its proxies anywhere in Syria and that Syria must strictly abide by the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement".

Asked by a reporter if he anticipated a time when the Quneitra crossing would be reopened under the United Nations -monitored armistice between Israel and Syria, and whether the two old enemies could establish "some kind of relationship", Lieberman said: "I reckon we are a long way from that, but we are not ruling out anything".

In February Israel shot down an Iranian-operated drone that it tracked entering its airspace from Syria.

Israel has carried out scores of air strikes on suspected Iranian or Hezbollah deployments and arms transfers in Syria, seeing these as a greater threat than Assad and warning him not to abet them.

Military officials said they shot down a Syrian drone Wednesday that flew several miles into Israeli territory over the Sea of Galilee.

According to the spokesman, the delay was due to initial uncertainty over who was operating the drone, specifically if it was being flown by Russian Federation, whose air force has been flying extensive missions over southern Syria to support dictator Bashar Assad's offensive against two rebel-held provinces in the area.

"A few hours ago, a Syrian aircraft infiltrated Israel's airspace", he said.
