Jordan also weighed in saying it has discussed developments in southern Syria with Washington and Moscow and that all three parties agreed on the need to preserve a "de-escalation" zone that was brokered a year ago.

This month, Israel said it launched intensive airstrikes in Syria after what it described as Iranian rocket fire from the south into the Golan. Russian Federation and Israel have allegedly agreed that militias loyal to Iran will be held back so that Assad can retake the region from rebels. Israeli forces have carried out increasingly intense strikes against Iranian targets in Syria in recent weeks and in the process have inflicted serious damage on the Assad regime's air defences.

The US warned it would take "firm and appropriate measures" in response to any violations of that ceasefire.

The secret agreement was hashed out over the phone between the Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman.

Sources said the two national security advisers will make changes to the agreement that reflect the "new reality" of the United States no longer being party to the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran.

Fearing that a fight between Israel and Iranian troops within Syria could undermine the position of fighters loyal to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, Moscow has called for all non-Syrian fighters to move away from Syria's border with Israel and Jordan.

Jordanian officials served as mediator, shuttling messages between the two rooms, according to the report.
