Israel fires missiles into Syrian Golan Heights as tensions rise amid ‘grand bargain’ to reduce Iran’s influence

Israel fired missiles into Syria on Thursday in response to a drone incursion in the Golan Heights, raising tensions on the shared border as leaders Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were set to meet to discuss its fate.

Speculation over a potential grand bargain between the US and Russia that would limit Iran’s influence in Syria in return for an American withdrawal has been mounting ahead of a summit on Monday.
