The deployment of the Russian military police to the Golan Heights took place following coordination with the Israeli authorities, the Israeli Embassy in Moscow said Thursday.

“The Israeli Embassy to Russia confirms that the deployment of Russian military police forces occurred after an agreement with Israel,” the press service of the diplomatic mission told Sputnik.

Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff, Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said earlier in the day that UN peacekeepers, accompanied by the Russian military police, conducted the first patrol in the area of the Syria-Israel disengagement line on Golan Heights in six years.

The Russian Defense Ministry also said that it planned to deploy eight observing posts of the military police along the Syrian border with the Golan Heights.

The control over the posts will be transferred to the Syrian governmental troops when the situation in the area is stabilized.

Syria has been engulfed in a civil war since 2011 with the government forces fighting against a number of opposition groups and terrorist organizations. The Syrian government troops are currently conducting a major operation against opposition forces in the southwestern provinces of the country, which are adjacent to Israel and Jordan.

LOL. Russia simply helps to make UNDOF buffer zone back. UN Blue Helmets were waiting on Israeli side of the border. Russian military police is doing joint patrols with Blue Helmets. If you think you can keep the Israelis in check when even the Yanks can’t, you’re seriously deluded. In fact, Russians are keeping IRGC+Hezbo in check, having ordered them to keep away from the border, otherwise Israelis would be massively hammering them… Thus it still may happen since Russians let them strike these at will while Syrian air defences have no means to deal with actual electronic warfare, Pantsirs… Read more »
