  • Russia to Israel: Arbitrary attacks on sovereign Syrian territories must stop

    Baladi News

    Russia has made clear to Israel that “arbitrary attacks on sovereign Syrian territory should be stopped,” and has not seamlessly moved past the downing of the Russian spy plane in September, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin said in an interview posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry website.

    Vershinin, who along with Alexander Lavrentiev, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s special envoy on Syria, visited Jerusalem last month and met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said “absolutely not” when asked if Moscow was ready to close its eyes to Israeli attacks in Syria even if Russians are not in the line of fire, and whether Russia has moved past the downing of its spy plane that it blamed indirectly on Israel.
