Putin, Netanyahu speak, discuss Syria

Bulgaria Putin Urges Israel not to Take Action in Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) shakes hands with Ambassador of Montenegro to Russia Ramiz Basic (L) as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (back) looks on during a ceremony of presenting ambassadors' credentials at the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia, on April 11, 2018.

Netanyahu's office also released a statement saying that "the Prime Minister talked by telephone with the Russian President Vladimir Putin this evening" and the Israeli leader "reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish itself militarily in Syria".

The Israeli strikes reportedly targeted an "advanced system" that could undermine Israel's air superiority in Lebanese and Syrian airspace, according to Hadashot TV.

The Russians, along with the Syrians and Iranians, hold Israel responsible for the recent attack on the T-4 airbase near Homs, in which a drone launch site and command center was destroyed and several ranking Iranian military personnel were killed.

In a phone call with the prime minister, "Putin stressed the fundamental importance of respecting the sovereignty of Syria, called for refraining from any actions that might further destabilize the situation in this country and pose a threat to its security", the official Russian Sputnik news agency reported.

"We are preventing Iranian activity in Syria".

In his speech, Netanyahu criticised the nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers and warned Iranian leaders not to "test Israel's resolve".

While Russia, Iran and Syria have accused Israel of carrying out the pre-dawn attack, Tel Aviv has refused to comment.

However, in the wake of last week's alleged chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime, Trump appears ready to intensify USA involvement in the region.
