Netanyahu to Putin: remove Iran from Syria, Assad safe from Israel


The message, which the official said Netanyahu conveyed in talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, came just hours after Israel shot down what it described a Syrian drone that had penetrated its airspace, underscoring the frontier's volatility.

He added that military officials believe the drone was Syrian and that it could have been on an intelligence collecting mission, but it was not yet clear if it purposely entered Israel or strayed from its path.

Supposedly Israel waited 15 minutes before shooting it down, so they could check with the Russians, and make sure it wasn't theirs before shooting it down.

Shortly afterward, Netanyahu held a lengthy meeting with Putin in which they established a joint Israeli-Russian team to coordinate military activities and mitigate "misunderstandings".

After it was shot by a USA -supplied Patriot missile, drone fragments fell into the water.

"We are prepared for the possibility of Israeli sovereignty being violated as a result of the fighting in Syria", IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said.

"We are still looking into why it crossed - whether it was on a military mission and crossed on goal, or it strayed", he said, while adding that the latter scenario was "not common". It is for Trump to accept Russia's occupation of the Crimean peninsula and East Ukraine and lift the sanctions imposed on it while allowing Putin to control Syria, and in exchange Putin expels the Iranians and their followers from Syria thus granting Netanyahu a historic victory. "I very much appreciate the direct, unmediated and excellent contact that I have with the Russian president".

While formally neutral on the civil war, Israel has carried out scores of air strikes on suspected Iranian or Hezbollah deployments and arms transfers in Syria, seeing these as a greater threat than Assad and warning him not to abet them. 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.

"They (Russia) have an active interest in seeing a stable Assad regime and we in getting the Iranians out". The IDF has not yet said exactly who flew either drone.

On June 24, Israel's military said it launched a Patriot missile at an incoming drone from Syria, which turned away unscathed.

"Any Syrian soldier found in the buffer zone is endangering his life, " Lieberman said while touring the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.
