Netanyahu tells Putin that Israeli airstrikes in Syria will continue



Zionist Israeli PM Netanyahu said that he has told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israeli forces will continue airstrikes in Syria if they deem it necessary, RT reported.

“If there is feasibility from an intelligence and military standpoint – we attack and so it will continue,” Netanyahu said during a visit to China, adding that he had informed Putin of Israel’s intentions.

The Israeli PM dismissed Russia’s insistence that Israel stops its airstrikes in Syria, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren, to demand explanations for the airstrikes Israel conducted near the Syrian city of Palmyra on Friday morning. Israeli Defence Force (IDF) warplanes hit several targets near Palmyra, allegedly destroying advanced arms provided to the Lebanese militant movement Hezbollah, the RT report continued.

Syria’s air defense force fired anti-aircraft missiles at the Israeli planes in response with the Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatening afterwards that “next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it.”
