Israel attacks Syrian army post in Quneitra

Israel attacks Syrian army post in Quneitra

The military said a reconnaissance drone from Syria flew 10 kilometers into Israeli airspace the previous day. Its remains landed south of the sea of Galilee.

Netanyahu will be meeting Putin as a critical meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders is taking place in Brussels - with Trump expected to bash his allies for not paying enough for their defense - and before the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki in five days.

The spokesperson said in a statement that three positions were attacked "in response to the infiltration of the Syrian UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) that was intercepted". A series of strikes in Syria that have killed Iranians have been attributed to Israel in recent months.

In Israel, this is all being viewed as a recipe for war.

Israel's main concern is to keep archenemy Iran, also an Assad ally, as far away from its border as possible - along with its proxy, the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. It is believed to possess hundreds of thousands of missiles that can threaten cities all over Israel.

However, Netanyahu does not need to travel to the Kremlin to tell Putin Jerusalem's positions.




Israel has been on high alert as Syrian government forces advance on rebels in the vicinity of the Golan, worrying Assad could let his Iranian allies entrench near its lines. But it is unclear how much clout Netanyahu has with Putin yet.

"Our air defences are responding to an Israeli aggression and intercepting a number of missiles targeting the airport, hitting one of the attacking planes and forcing the rest to leave the airspace", the official SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying.

"We will not tolerate any threat or harm against Israeli civilians or Israeli sovereignty", Conricus said during the briefing.

The meeting was part of the ongoing coordination between Israel and Russian Federation over their actions in Syria.

The two leaders are expected to discuss those meetings as well. While it is clear that Israel does not have Russia's global stature, Putin is attentive to Israel's needs which are confluent to some of his interests. "I very much appreciate the direct, unmediated and excellent contact that I have with the Russian president".

Graham's appeal came hours after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday evening, and amid reports that US President Donald Trump was considering a deal with the Russian leader regarding the future of Syria.
