Putin, Netanyahu address tensions over Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday not to take any action that could destabilize Syria or put its security in peril, the Kremlin said.

The Kremlin released word of the two leaders’ conversation during Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech at the state ceremony commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day at Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum.

“The Syrian matter was discussed, including the recent missile attack on the T-4 Airbase in Homs, which was carried out by the Israeli Air Force,” the Russian statement said.


In the telephone call, the Prime Minister reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria, a message by the Prime Minister’s Office said.
