Netanyahu to meet Putin amid new round of Syria strikes

Share

Syrian state TV reported that Syria downed two Israeli missiles over Syria late Tuesday. During the Syrian Civil War errant fire struck the Golan several times; usually local organizations in southern Syria that are affiliated with Iran, Hezbollah and the Assad regime were behind those rockets.

There have been conflicting reports coming out of Syria.

The attack took place an hour after US President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and impose new sanctions on the Islamic Republic, a move that was praised in Israel but criticized by the European states that signed the 2015 agreement.

The strikes, "probably Israeli", targeted a military airport in Aleppo in the country's north and Brigade 47 in Hama, where Iranian forces are stationed, the Observatory said.

Netanyahu made his statements as the two leaders discussed bilateral relations, as well as the situation in the Middle East. Putin described the situation in the region as "very tense".

The military directive Tuesday came "following the identification of irregular activity of Iranian forces in Syria".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphasized on Wednesday the need to fight back an ideology which might lead to Nazism and Holocaust while naming Iran as a country posing threat to Israel.

Russian Federation and Iran are Assad's main allies in Syria's civil war. Israel then destroyed what it describe as the Iranian command and control center in Syria that dispatched the drone.

A barrage of 20 rockets was sacked Wednesday night from Syria towards Israeli military outposts in the Golan Heights. Such strikes have become more frequent recently.

An April 9 strike killed seven Iranian military personnel at a Syrian airbase.
