A US national security delegation arrived in Israel on Tuesday for high-level meetings with Israeli counterparts to discuss the Syria ceasefire deal that Washington has struck with Moscow.

 

Israel has reservations that not enough is being done to tackle Iran’s presence in southern Syria.

 

According to local media reports, the delegation includes officials from the national security council.

 

A spokesman said: “We have an important, strategic, strong, collaborative relationship with Israel, and US government delegations routinely visit Israel to coordinate on a wide range of issues.

 

“US officials will meet with Israeli counterparts to discuss regional security issues, including Syria.”

 

Israeli daily Haaretz reported that in their meetings the US officials will address Iran’s influence and the situation in southern Syria.

 

The US and Russia brokered a ceasefire deal there last July and added a de-escalation agreement last week.
