Israel strikes military positions in Golan Heights

Israel strikes military positions in Golan Heights

On Sunday, Syria accused Israel of attacking an air force base near Homs that was known to be housing Iranian forces.

Netanyahu underlined warm ties between Russian Federation and Israel, emphasizing what he described as their key stabilizing role for the Mideast.

Israel is especially concerned about Iran's military presence in Syria.

Russian Federation is Assad's big-power backer in the seven-year-old civil war.

However, there have recently been signs of an emerging compromise among key players.

"They (Russia) have an active interest in seeing a stable Assad regime and we in getting the Iranians out".

Watched by Israeli soldiers with night-vision equipment, one woman - carrying one child and holding the hand of another - stepped through a gate built into Israel's security fence in the occupied Golan Heights.

Asked who would win the match, Netanyahu told them, "the better team".

In their Moscow meeting Netanyahu and Putin were to discuss Syria.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have delivered strikes on three military targets in Syria in response to the infiltration of a Syrian drone into the Israeli territory, the IDF spokesperson twitted on Thursday.

On the other hand, Shoigu said that the United States is trying to destabilize the situation in Syria and to prolong the crisis in it, indicating that Washington hasn't allocated any money to help the Syrian civilians who have been affected by the war.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Giornale published Wednesday that Moscow hopes that Israel and Iran will both display caution and avoid a showdown.

The Golan Heights was captured by Israel amid war in 1967 and illegally annexed in 1981. "In that context, we rely on peaceful diplomatic means to resolve any differences and expect both sides to show restraint".
