Israel Ignores Putin’s Warning

(ANTIMEDIA) According to Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations, Russia has reportedly sent a clear warning to the Israeli government that they will no longer have freedom to act in Syrian skies.

“Putin sent a clear message,” said Bashar Jaafari on Syrian television Sunday night, as reported by Haaretz. “The fact is that the Israeli ambassador [to Russia] was summoned for a conversation only a day after he submitted his credentials [to the Russian Foreign Ministry last Thursday], and was told categorically that this game was over.” [emphasis added]

Israel has struck Syria multiple times, including before the so-called Syrian civil war began in 2011, as well as periodically over the last six-year period. Just last week, Israel conducted a number of airstrikes within Syrian territory. On Sunday, an Israeli airstrike also allegedly killed a pro-regime commander in the Golan Heights.

According to Jaafari, Syria’s use of anti-aircraft fire against Israel last Thursday night has changed the rules of the game, as Syria will no longer tolerate Israeli fire on its territory. However, Syria’s missile defense system was unsuccessful in bringing down Israeli jets.

Following the use of Syria’s defense system, Israel warned it would respond in turn by taking out Syria’s defenses if Syria deploys them again in future.

In essence, Israel believes it has the right to defend itself from homemade rockets launched from a blockaded, densely populated area that is protected by no air force and no air defenses. At the same time, Israel also believes its neighbor, Syria, does not have an equal right to defend itself from Israel’s vast military capabilities.

In response to Russia’s alleged warning, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has reportedly told Vladimir Putin that Israeli air strikes will continue in Syria to contain threats.

The agreement between Russia and Israel that allows the air force to execute “defensive missions” against targets in Syria still stands, Netanyahu said, as reported by the Jerusalem Post. In such instances, he said, “We attack if we have information and the operational feasibility. This will continue.”

It speaks volumes that Israel conducts airstrikes within Syrian territory without even targeting the terror groups Western media has portrayed as sheer evil, like ISIS. In fact, on multiple occasions, ISIS fighters have left behind Israeli weaponry following a string of defeats.
