Russia Summoned ’Israeli’ Ambassador over Syria Airstrikes
Local Editor

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the "Israeli" ambassador in Moscow to demand explanations for the airstrikes "Israel" conducted near the Syrian city of Palmyra last week, the ministry confirmed.

Russia Summoned

Ambassador Gary Koren was called in by Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday after news about the strike emerged, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told the media on Monday, confirming earlier media reports.

The embassy refrained from commenting on Koren's visit over the weekend, but the Russian Foreign Ministry did say that the ambassador's visit "was mostly to discuss the latest events in Syria and around it."

On Friday morning, "Israeli" planes attacked several targets in Syria. Syria's air defense force fired anti-aircraft missiles at the planes as they were returning into the apartheid entity.

On Sunday, "Israeli" War Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to destroy Syria's air defenses if the country attacked "Israeli" warplanes again.

"Next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it," Avigdor Lieberman told "Israeli" Public Radio on Sunday. "We won't hesitate."

"Israel" has a long record of violating Syrian airspace with impunity that stretches back to before 2011, when the country's current armed conflict began.
