US Multi-Pronged Agenda on Syria

The United States' efforts to replace its troops in Syria with an Arab coalition force are geared toward localizing regional conflicts, containing Iranian influence and carving out an autonomous Kurdish entity in the war-ravaged country, says an international affairs analyst. 
Citing US officials, the Wall Street Journal recently reported that US President Donald Trump's administration is seeking to assemble an "Arab force" to replace Washington's military contingent in Syria. 
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Egypt are reportedly potential contributors to the proposed Arab expeditionary force. 
Trump himself called on western allies in the Middle East last month to pick up more of the financial and military burden in the conflict and deploy their own troops to the Arab state.
In an interview with the Iranian Diplomacy website published last week, Hassan Hanizadeh said the plan is mainly intended to help enhance Tel Aviv's security through stationing the forces along Israel's borders.  
"This way, any direct conflict would be between the resistance forces and the Arab army rather than between the resistance forces and Israel."  
Regional countries and forces opposed to Israel and the US are often referred to as a "resistance front".
