Putin tells Netanyahu to tread lightly in Syria

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the phone Wednesday.

Netanyahu's office also released a statement saying that "the Prime Minister talked by telephone with the Russian President Vladimir Putin this evening" and the Israeli leader "reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish itself militarily in Syria".

The two men "discussed the Syrian issue, including in light of the recent missile strikes by the Israeli Air Force on the T-4 airfield in the Homs province".

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied. The attack came after reports that Syria used chemical weapons in an attack on civilians. Netanyahu also ripped into the landmark nuclear accord reached between Teheran and world powers and said: "I have a message for the leaders of Iran: Don't test Israel's resolve".

Trump skips South America trip as United States mulls Syria response
Haley said Russian Federation was to blame for the council's failure to take action on Syria , now in its 8th year of war. Medical sources say dozens were killed in the alleged attack but exact numbers are impossible to verify.

In a statement after the call, the Kremlin said Putin "emphasized the importance of respecting Syria's sovereignty", and called on Netanyahu to avoid any action "that could further destabilize the situation" in Syria. Israel maintains a policy of not commenting directly on attacks outside its borders.

On Tuesday, an Iranian official said the airstrike would "not remain without a response", according to Lebanese news channel Al Mayadeen.

Israel has said repeatedly that it can not tolerate an extended Iranian presence in Syria and reportedly has launched air raids to keep Iran from delivering weapons to Hezbollah. On Wednesday, taking to Twitter, Trump warned Russian Federation that US missiles would soon strike Syria.
