Nothing would surprise me. The border with the Golan Heights has been very quiet, and remained so for years, so that must be regarded as an advantage by Israel.
I certainly think there is a lot of secret diplomacy going on. Putin visited Israel in person last year - there would have been some sort of discussions, maybe a deal.
Turkey is the wild card in this pack. If they take over northern Syria they will become immensely powerful, and Russia can’t bear the thought. Israel might not like it, either.
