The Israeli and Russian military forces must continue to coordinate their actions “in the light of what is happening in Syria,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before departing for Moscow on Wednesday.
“This morning, I am leaving for an important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. All of our meetings are important, but this is especially important,” Netanyahu stressed.
“In the light of what is happening in Syria, it is necessary to guarantee continued security coordination between the Russian Army and the IDF,” Netanyahu said.
The Israeli military on Tuesday reported that they had documented “unusual activity” by the Iranian forces in Syria and were preparing for a possible attack on their part by deploying anti-aircraft defense in the Golan Heights and ordering them to open bomb shelters there.
The Israeli military also said that they conducted a limited call for reservists.
