BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:55 A.M.) – According the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Moscow’s military intelligence channels have no information suggesting that an imminent attack is about to befall Israel at the hands of another state – including Iran.

The Russian diplomat clarified Moscow’s understanding of the matter yesterday after talks with the Emir of Qatar in which he was confronted with accusations from certain media reports claiming that Iran plans to deploy precision missile systems in Syria and Lebanon which are capable of striking Israel.

“We do not have any information about anyone preparing an attack on Israel,” the foreign minister said.

Lavrov also added that if Iran and Syria cooperate in any bilateral field (economic, military, etc.) without breaching international law then no other state should question such cooperation.

This comes during a time when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been exceptionally vocal about Iran’s presence in Syria, even threatening to bomb palace of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if Iran “expands” its military footing in the country.

Israel has occasionally carried about airstrikes in Syria against what it claims to be Hezbollah military assets and personnel. Furthermore, Israel openly supports terrorist organizations who fight the Syrian Army in the country’s Golan region such as the al-Qaeda-linked Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham – formerly called Jabhat al-Nusra – jihadist group with weapons, intelligence, medical care and, occasionally, airstrikes.
