After shooting down a drone crossing in from Syria early in the morning, the Israeli Air Force attacked three Syrian Army posts on Wednesday, saying it was punishment for the drone itself, which they blamed on the military.

But the preliminary agreement between the US and France comes ahead of two key meetings between both leaders and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier this week, media reports coming out of Syria said an Israeli airstrike hit a Syrian air force base.

Syria has been heavily involved in internal strife for several years now, with occasional incidents of stray fire penetrating Israeli territory.

Israel has been on high alert as Syrian regime forces advance on the opposition and rebels in the vicinity of the Golan, which Israel took from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. A source in the Syrian military has told media that the attack was perpetrated by Israel, although the IDF has yet to comment on the claims.

But he added rescuers may need more than 20 hours, to replan and replenish oxygen supplies, to be ready to mount the next mission. Four boys and their 25-year-old football coach "will be extracted on Tuesday", rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said.

He said that the Israeli army would continue to act firmly against any attempts from Syria to breach the sovereignty of Israel and to harm its citizens.

Netanyahu will be meeting Putin as a critical meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders is taking place in Brussels - with Trump expected to bash his allies for not paying enough for their defense - and before the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki in five days.

But on Tuesday, Israel also signaled openness to eventual ties with Syria under Assad, a tacit acknowledgment that he was re-consolidating power as he beats back the rebels.

Netanyahu's government has made clear it would not now cede the plateau and has been lobbying for United States recognition of Israel's claim of sovereignty there.

Though allied with Assad, Moscow has largely given Israeli warplanes a free hand over Syrian skies and has turned a blind eye to frequent strikes attributed to Israel targeting outposts housing Iranian and Iran-backed forces and armaments, including heavy weapons convoys believed destined for Hezbollah.
