Syria Attack: Russia Summons ‘Israeli’ Envoy, Demands Clarification
Local Editor

Following the ‘Israeli' raid on Syria's Palmyra, Russia summoned the Zionist ambassador to Moscow for clarification.

Syria Attack: Russia Summons ‘Israeli' Envoy, Demands Clarification

Relatively, ‘Israeli' media reported that Gary Koren was summoned by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday, a day after he presented his credentials to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier on Friday, the Syrian army announced in a statement that ‘Israeli' fighter jets penetrated Syrian airspace via Lebanese territory and "hit a military target on the way to Palmyra" overnight. The statement added that the army's air defense shot down one of the aircraft and hit another.

The ‘Israeli' apartheid regime has carried out air raids against Syrian-based targets on many occasions, but it rarely confesses the attacks. On Friday, however, the Zionist military acknowledged that its jets bombed several targets in Syria.

In a statement to justify the provocative operation, ‘Israeli' Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that the ‘Israeli' military had targeted a convoy of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, in Syria.

"When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah - when we have the intel and the operational capability - we act to prevent it," Netanyahu claimed on Friday.

Hezbollah fighters have fended off several Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri ISIS/ISIL group] attacks inside Lebanon, and accuses ‘Israel' of supporting Takfiri terrorists operating in the Middle East. Hezbollah has also been providing assistance to Syrian army forces in their fight against Daesh and other foreign-backed terrorist groups in Syria.

The Syrian army added in its statement that the ‘Israeli' aerial assaults were in fact aimed at Syrian army positions to weaken Damascus against Daesh in the region.

The ‘Israeli' raids were "a desperate attempt to raise their [Daesh terrorists'] deteriorating morale and divert attention from the victories which the Syrian Arab Army is making in the face of the terrorist organizations," it said.

Following the ‘Israeli' airstrikes, Damascus boosted its security presence in the southwestern Quneitra province, which includes parts of the Golan Heights region.
