Putin Urges Israel not to Take Action in Syria

Известный российский актер пожаловался на россиян

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the weekly cabinet meeting in the Israeli occupied Golan Heights near the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria, April 17, 2016.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday warned Iran not to launch a retaliatory attack against Israel after Tehran accused Tel Aviv of carrying out an airstrike on a Syrian airbase.

The conversation was initiated by the Israeli side, Russian media quoted the Kremlin as saying.

In a statement after the call, the Kremlin said Putin "emphasized the importance of respecting Syria's sovereignty", and called on Netanyahu to avoid any action "that could further destabilize the situation" in Syria.




The Israeli leader, who has often said that Iran and its pursuit of nuclear weapons is an existential threat to Israel, said that recent events "teach us that standing up to evil and aggression is the mission imposed on every generation".

The attack left 14 people dead, including seven Iranian soldiers.

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

Russian and Iranian forces, as well as fighters from Hizballah, are reported to have had a presence at the T-4 base in Homs that was struck on Monday.
