Israel shoots down Syria drone; Netanyahu meets Putin

Israel shoots down Syria drone; Netanyahu meets Putin

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated that warning during a visit to Moscow for talks with Vladimir Putin.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu met with Russian envoys Alexander Lavrentiev and Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin, in Jerusalem, reiterating again Israel's objection to an Iranian presence in Syria.

This trade, as reported by the Israeli press, would have Netanyahu offering to see Russian Federation given full relief from US-imposed sanctions in return for Russian Federation expelling Iranian military from Syria.

Israel has signalled openness to eventual ties with Assad, a tacit acknowledgement that he is re-consolidating power as he routs Syria's rebels.

It's less discussed in the media reports, but it's also not clear that Netanyahu could deliver his side of this exchange either.

Russian Federation was working to distance Iranian forces from the Golan and had proposed that they be kept 80 km (50 miles) away but this fell short of Israel's demand for their full exit along with that of Tehran-sponsored militias, the official said.

George Clooney reportedly hurt in motorcycle crash in Italy
Clooney left the hospital at 10 a.m. local time, after being escorted there by ambulance and receiving medical attention. George and Amal were seen arrive in the island on a private jet at the end of June with their twins Alexander and Ella .

"We won't take action against the Assad regime, and you get the Iranians out", the official, who requested anonymity, quoted Netanyahu as telling Putin during a meeting in Moscow. Still, it is impossible to ignore the questions of whether either side can deliver what the other wants, and may make the reported trade a very hard issue to approach.

Russian Federation is an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but has turned a blind eye to frequent sorties by Israeli aircraft against targets of Iran and the Hezbollah militant group in Syria. He added that the latter scenario was "not common". The United Nations last month renewed the mandate of its Golan observer force UNDOF and on Wednesday called on all parties to abide by the 44-year-old armistice arrangements.

"Their use of military force in Syria would inevitably lead to an escalation of tensions across the entire Middle East region", he said. The Netanyahu government is detemined to keep fighters loyal to Assad and to Iran out of the Syrian Golan border area near Israel. Netanyahu's government has made clear it would not now cede the Golan and has been lobbying for USA recognition of Israel's claim of sovereignty there.

Here is a video of the Patriot being fired at the drone. The IDF has not yet said exactly who flew either drone.

A drone, or UAV, "infiltrated the Israeli border from Syria", prompting Israel to activate its Patriot missile defense system, according to the Israeli Defense Force. On July 6, Israel struck a Syrian post that it said had shelled the Golan buffer zone.
