Putin urges Netanyahu to avoid escalation in Syria: Ifax

putinRussian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the situation in Syria in a telephone call on Saturday after heavy Israeli air strikes in the country, Interfax news agency cited the Kremlin as saying.

“They discussed the situation around the actions of the Israeli air force, which carried our missile strikes on targets in Syria,” Interfax quoted the Kremlin as saying.

Putin told Netanyahu there was a need to avoid any steps that would lead to a new confrontation in the region, Interfax reported.

Anti-aircraft fire downed an Israeli warplane returning from a bombing raid on Iran-backed positions in Syria earlier on Saturday in the most serious confrontations yet between Israel and Iranian-backed forces based across the border.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated that the US reports that scores of Russian soldiers are believed to be killed in US airstrikes on Syria are “disinformation,” at a press briefing in Moscow on Thursday.

    Zakharova argued that “claims about the deaths of dozens and hundreds of Russian citizens are classic misinformation. There are not 400, not 200, not 100 and not ten [of them killed as a result of the US-led coalition’s airstrike].”
