Under the above title, Vladimir Mukhin, in Nezavisimaya Gazeta, wrote about the transformation of the conflict in Syria into a war with Iran, and the use of Israeli airfields by the US-occupied territories in Syria to bomb Aleppo.
On the eve of his short visit to Moscow, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the main topic of his talks with Vladimir Putin was the Syrian issue.
Prior to the visit, Israeli media published details of the March 27 rocket attack on facilities in Aleppo, Syria. It was reported that the strikes targeted Iranian positions in the areas of Sheikh Najjar and Jabarin, as well as on the Nyairb Air Base, from two different directions. In addition to strikes from Lebanese airspace, for the first time in the entire Syrian campaign, IDF aircraft operated from the area occupied by the Americans in eastern Syria.
According to the website avia.pro, quoting Israeli sources, that “Israeli electronic surveillance devices revealed that Syrian air defense systems have been activated, but at the same time did not open fire on Israeli aircraft.”
There were no official comments from military authorities in Russia or Israel regarding the above information. At the same time, the Israeli website Debka asserts that the attack on Iranian targets in Aleppo “will not be the only one.” However, geography obliges Israel to develop new bases for coordination with Russian forces based in northern Syria. “According to Dibka, this imperative has become the main motivation for Netanyahu’s new contacts with Putin.
Thus, Israel’s desire to become a mediator between Moscow and Washington in the dialogue over Syria, which may have occupied Netanyahu again in Moscow, is directed against Iran. Although Russia, like Damascus, can not agree to the demand of the United States and Tel Aviv to withdraw all Iranian Shiite formations from Syria. At the same time, this does not mean at all that the visit of the Israeli Prime Minister to Russia militarily, for Moscow and Tel Aviv, was not effective.
