  • Israel will not ‘rule out’ ties with Syrian govt – Defence minister

After shooting down a drone crossing in from Syria early in the morning, the Israeli Air Force attacked three Syrian Army posts on Wednesday, saying it was punishment for the drone itself, which they blamed on the military.

A senior Republican lawmaker on Thursday warned Israel against striking a deal with Russian Federation on the future of Iranian forces in Syria at the expense of the United States' interests in the country.

On Wednesday, Israeli forces shot down a drone that violated its airspace.

Israel says it has treated between 4,000 and 4,500 war casualties from Syria since a humanitarian aid programme was begun some five years ago.

Putin has developed warm relations with Israel even while backing Iran and intervening in the Syrian civil war since 2015, helping Assad to turn the tide in favor of government forces.

Israel has repeatedly said it will not allow Iran to establish a permanent military presence on its doorstep in neighboring Syria.

But the Israeli official told Reuters that Russia's plan to distance Iranian forces from Israel falls short of the demand Netanyahu said he conveyed to Putin for a complete withdrawal of Iranian-allied forces.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Israeli army said the downed drone may have been on an intelligence mission.

Netanyahu's one-day trip to Moscow is part of the security coordination between the Zionist entity and Russian Federation over their actions in Syria.

Conricus said that after the drone was destroyed by a single Patriot missile, its remains landed near the Sea of Galilee.

The air base was also hit on February 10, after Israel accused Iranian forces at the T-4 base of sending a drone into Israeli territory.

Israel has been on high alert recently as Syrian rebels have advanced on the Golan area.

Mr Putin and Mr Netanyahu had reportedly reached an agreement for Russian Federation to hold back Iranian-backed groups from the border before the Syrian regime began its offensive against rebels there last month.

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