Russian Federation summons Israeli envoy following IDF strikes in Syria

Russian Federation summons Israeli envoy following IDF strikes in Syria

The ambassador said that Israel should be "prepared for everything" when asked whether he ruled out escalation in relations with Syria.

On Sunday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to destroy Syria's air defenses if the country attacked Israeli warplanes again.

Russia, which backs Syria's embattled president, Bashar Assad, summoned its envoy, Gary Koren, on Friday less than 24 hours after the Israeli military action on Thursday night, according to The Times of Israel.

Syrian government representatives will attend upcoming peace talks in Geneva, Russia's state RIA news agency reported on Monday, citing Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.

The Israeli Air Force is now testing the first battery of Magic Wand, also known as David's Sling, the new and advanced missile interception system that will join the Arrow and Iron Dome that protect Israel's skies.


Despite the Zionist officials' escalatory statements in comment on Syria striking response to the Israeli air raids on Palmyra in Homs countryside, the analysts added that the Syrian military capabilities may inflict heavier losses on the Zionist jets.

Russian Federation summoned its ambassador to Israel for clarifications following Israeli airstrikes in Syria.

"We know exactly who is doing what and where", an Israeli Northern Command officer near a military outpost in the Golan Heights, told Vocativ earlier this month, occasionally interrupted by the boom of shelling taking place several miles. Those attacks haven't been challenged by Syria, for the most part.

Israeli officials have repeatedly expressed concern that the survival of the Assad government would mean that a Shi'ite ally of Iran would remain along their border. Should Israel be allowed to intervene to prevent Hezbollah from being armed? Those include Scuds, which can hit targets across Israel. "Hezbollah has been violating United Nations resolutions and is gearing for war", he said.

Brig Gen Nitzan Nuriel, a former director of counter-terrorism in the Israeli prime minister's bureau until 2012, said conflict with Hezbollah was inevitable as the group sought ever more advanced anti-aircraft missiles, heavy rockets and tactical weapons, but he believed Assad had seriously misread the situation.
