BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:55 P.M.) – Israel’s National Security Advisor Meir Ben-Shabbat recently visited Moscow to meet with his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev and several other officials, Channel 10 reported.

Ben-Shabbat told Channel 10 that during his meeting, he pressed the Russians to force Iranians to leave Syria.

“I made clear to them our principles on this matter,” he said.

“Iran must leave Syria and we will act and are already acting against Iran’s attempts to establish itself in that country,” he added.

Ben-Shabbat’s visit comes just days after Israel’s Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman traveled to Moscow to meet with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoygu.
