"We have said before that Iranian military advisers are not present in southern Syria and have not participated in recent operations", Shamkhani said.
"The increase in Israeli violence against the oppressed people in Gaza and the West Bank is a reactive response to the defeat of the plan to use Takfiri terrorists to provoke clashes in the Muslim world and deplete resources of Muslim countries", Shamkhani said.
The current controversy comes after a week of tension in southern Syria.
"This move is a positive step for further control of the Syrian government on its territories occupied by terrorist groups", he noted.
Russian Federation said last week that only Syrian army troops should be on the country's southern border with Jordan and Israel. Jihadists associated with the Nusra Front, which was al-Qaeda in Syria, briefly were influential near the border, and an Islamic State affiliate also took over a small area.

In an interview with Russia's RT television on May 31, Assad asserted that he is willing to negotiate with Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) that are allied with and embedded with USA forces and now hold about one-quarter of Syria's territory. "We don't have any other options, with the Americans or without the Americans", he said.
But he said he will reclaim their territory by force, if necessary.
"Contrary to the unlawful presence of the USA and some regional countries in Syria, Iran's presence is not imposed and is not the result of an illegal military aggression".
A source told the Ynet news site on Thursday that "Israel is uninterested in partial agreements, but rather in an exit of all Iranian forces from Syria".
The US's presence in Syria is not sanctioned under global law. In 2017 he pressed the Trump administration to commit to challenge Iranian forces in Syria after victory in the campaign against the Islamic State. Iran's regime claims it was invited to support the Syrian regime and its forces therefore are not "foreign".
Iran says ISIS was created under a plot by Israel, the United States and their allies to disintegrate West Asian countries and protect the Israeli regime. Pompeo has been outspoken in condemnation of Iran's role in Syria.
