BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Russian Foreign Ministry’s Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova denounced the arbitrary Israeli airstrikes in Syria, claiming that they are contributing to heightening tensions in the region.

“Israel’s continued unilateral aerial bombardment of Syrian territory is a violation of the sovereignty of the neighboring Arab countries and a cause for concern,” Zakharova said in a briefing.

According to Zakharova, “the last attack by an Israeli aircraft on March 5, used Lebanese airspace, killed a Syrian soldier and wounded more than 10 others.”

“We believe that such arbitrary actions undermine regional security and contribute to increased tensions,” she added

Iran-funded PIJ and Hamas go on shooting rockets, don’t they? IRGC receives the retaliations, the great Ayatoilet asks for it with any rocket smuggled into Gaza. Until one day Israel considers that it won’t stop until the master of puppets is dealt with and then Tehran will receive a long overdue swarm of missiles

If the UN doesn’t keeps silent, it’ll have to suspend Iran’s seat at the UNGA first! Iran’s attitude towards Israel, funding/arming armed groups to perform attacks against the country is intolerable under UN’s Charter and under Hague Convention, such acts are casus-belli = de facto declaration of war! UN can only admire Israel’s restraint as IDF would be legally entitled at launching an all out war on Iran! But you’re too based to read the Hague Convention (Int’l law about war) as you’d be forced to admit that IRGC is a legitimate target for IDF, and so are Hezbollah, PIJ,… Read more »

Israel has got used to slam from every body everywhere. What Russia needs to do is to stop Israel planes that are leading to attack Syria (Russia has a lot of intelligence and military capabilities to do that). However and as usual, Russia pleases Israel and allows it to carry out its attack.

Thanks to Russia for adhering to International Standards of geopolitical relations.
We all know that these unprovoked attacks by Israeli forces on sovereign nations are wrong but few have the courage to publicly denounce them.
