Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday he had a very important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and told him that his country is against any presence of Iran in Syria.

“It was a very important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. I stressed Israel’s clear position: we are against any presence of Iran in Israel,” Netanyahu wrote on his Facebook account.

He also wrote that he told the Russian leader that Israel had downed a Syrian drone over its territory. “We will continue to react toughly in such situations,” he added.

Earlier on Wednesday, Israel Defense Forces downedan unmanned aerial vehicle over the Israeli territory. Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus said that the Israeli Defense Forces had been monitoring the drone since it entered the demilitarized zone separating Syria and Israel on the Golan Heights.

According to Conricus, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) had flown approximately ten kilometers into Israel before being shot down by a Patriot missile in the south of the Sea of Galilee, in northern Israel. Previously, the drone had penetrated into Jordan’s airspace.

“We made sure in real time that it was not a Russian UAV [before shooting it down],” he said. “Our current understanding was that it was an unarmed Syrian UAV. It appears to have been on an intelligence collection mission.”

In 2015, the militaries of Russia and Israel set up a coordination mechanism to prevent possible incidents.

No one elected NutYahoo president of Syria. So he can “want” in one hand and “c**p” in the other and see which hand fills up first.

Funny that not only Obama and Trump think they are elected to speak for the Syrian people. But that other supremacists have this defect also.

The presence of Iran is the result of a short-term Israeli policy of preventative attacking the Arab states. It pushed these countries to embrace of Iran. It is so simple, if Israel give back Golan to Syria and not interfere in a civil war in Lebanon, Hezbollah would not have been created and Iran would have no influence on Middle East policy. But it’s not in the style of Israel. From the very beginning, Israel was not interested in peace with the Arabs, they chose war and one of the consequences is that they now have Iran at their borders… Read more »

The presence of Iran also results from Gulf Arab meddling that endangered Shia holy sites in Syria. The Bani Saud see pilgrimages as a source for political and financial revenue.
No deals change that.

The Druze-Srian Golan stays occupied because it is a water source. And it will not be part of peace deals on that either.

Both Muslims and the Jews share the same problem. They will not give up land that was once theirs. And during WW I the Entente (Brits & French) sold Palestine both to the Hashemites and to the Rothschilds.

Actually, Brits did the sale alone. They also sold Hejaz (Mecca) and Syria to Hashemites. French kicked the Hashemites out then Brits gave’em Iraq as a compensation. The Druze traditional area is not really Golan, the Jabal-al Druze is more around Daraa : Water is part of the thing since Syria tried to modify the river flow to deprive Israel of water, but it failed, moreover, Golan Heights were used for 19 years to daily shell wide into Galilee from the plateau. The dispute is just used as an excuse to not sign a peace treaty while actually it’s only… Read more »

Not only “holocaust ™ survivors” and Zionists live in Israel. After the 1948 war the Muslim countries pressured their Jews, they left for Israel, most of their belongings were taken as spoils, now they are 60% of the Israeli population – they do not want any powerful Muslim countries encroaching their borders.

Absolutely true! Arab-League rapidly expelled 850,000 Jews and by 1972-1973, more than 1.2-1.3M were gone. 120,000km² in real estate belonging to Jews in Arab countries were also stolen, it’s 4x the size of Israel. In Iraq only, 130k were expelled before 1951, with just a suitcase. Billions in actual dollars were stolen from them too… BTW, our Shia “friends” forget about Iranian imperialism and Khamenei+Soleimani as real creators of ISIS… I think that they highly counted on JCPOA to pay for an Iranian Marshall-Plan on Iraq and Syria to encroach both countries in debts to repay for near a century.… Read more »

love your Trade Mark sign next to the Holomyth, shortly they may even release Holomyth striped Jeans, or even Holomyth Tshirts with the inscription “Cry for my JOO” or “Cry for my great grand father and give me your land” or “I am the chosen one, give me your house”

As long as Israel remains on the warpath with its neighbours, it will only create resistance and insecurity among its neighbours and its own citizens. It is time to change tack and engage in dialogue to achieve real peace in the region and to recognize the right to exist and self-defence of the Arab states themselves. Peace can not be enforced, you make yourself an opening to talk and show understanding and compassion for the needs and requirements of your opponents, which usually converge with your own desires. Peace and future prospects is something that you build together, and not… Read more »

Where it will be amusing for you is to look for where Russia places its own anti-missile shield. Since the country is enormous and GDP/PPP is about the half of India, they deploy these where they see concerning threat…
And so, the biggest concentrations of ABMs aren’t placed to prevent a NATO or US attack, but to intercept…
Either North-Korean or…
Iranian missiles…
Dig it!

Perhaps President Putin replied that the US should also remove her forces from the occupied Palestinian lands currently known as Israel 🙂

The only nuclear nation ever having started a war on another nuclear one was Pakistan attacking India in 1999… And it wasn’t far from escalating, especially due to how Indian kicked Paki bütts the hard way. It was even mutually agreed to not publish casualties. Some source says Pakis ended with the record of 80% casualties and 60-80 F-16 lost… You don’t want to face Mirage-2000 teaming with Israeli customised Mig-29 when it comes to air superiority when you have old F-16A… “Words fail me…. so I go back to nuke the hooked nosed gits.” => Don’t you know that… Read more »
