JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel called on Monday for its arch-foe Iran to be denied any military presence in Syria, after Russia said Damascus’ forces alone should control Syrian territory near the Israeli and Jordanian borders.

“Our position on Syria is clear,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his parliamentary faction in broadcast remarks. “We believe that there is no place for any Iranian military presence, anywhere in Syria.”
