Putin To Host Netanyahu In Moscow For Talks On Syria, Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, visiting Moscow on Monday, set out Israel's red lines in the Middle East for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It will be the first time the two leaders have met face to face since Trump's landmark recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a hotly contested announcement that shook the global community and sparked waves of protest around the world.

Israeli officials have described the smuggling of Iranian missiles to Hezbollah and increasing Iranian presence close to the Israeli border as unacceptable "red lines" that could bring them to decide to start a war in Lebanon.

Netanyahu was accompanied by the head of Military Intelligence Maj. Gen. Ronen Manelis, posted a rare op-ed on Sunday on several Arabic-language websites, warning Lebanon of Iran's entrenchment and saying Israel is "prepared for all the scenarios".

Israel's Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, said there are 82,000 fighters under Iran's authority in Syria.

"We also spoke about Lebanon, which is becoming a factory of precision-guided missiles that threaten Israel". Their last meeting was held at the end of August, 2017. That's one of the reasons why the two leaders (Putin and Netanyahu) have been able to build such an open, direct, and personal relationship. Netanyahu said he told Putin that "also here, if we need to act, we will act".

Netanyahu said he and Putin talked about various "scenarios of escalation" in the region, and how they can be dealt with.

Putin and Netanyahu also jointly visited Moscow's Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center to see an exhibition about a 1943 uprising at the Nazis' Sobibor camp in occupied Poland.

The visit has been confirmed by the Prime Minister's Office.

Netanyahu said the "main lesson of the rise of the Nazis and, afterward, their defeat, is that one needs to take a strong and timely stand against murderous ideologies". This is the original of Oscar Schindler's letter to his wife.

"I very much appreciate this invitation and your personal attendance in this place on this day, that reflects our common struggle against the greatest evil that humanity has known", Netanyahu said.
