Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced his opposition to the Russian-US deal on the ceasefire in southern Syria during a press conference following the meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, local media reported Sunday.

During the July 7 meeting, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump agreed to implement a regional ceasefire in southern Syria.

From Netanyahu's point of view the agreement perpetuated Iranian presence in the war-torn Arab republic, the Haaretz newspaper reported, adding that Netanyahu pointed out his complete opposition to the deal.
