The Israeli Ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren said in an interview with TASS, that Israel is satisfied with Russia’s stance on Iran’s military presence in Syria.
Israel and Russia have been intensively discussing the issue of Iran’s military presence in Syria, which “is basically aimed @ protection Palestinian rights”.
The Russian authorities are aware of Israel’s position, which has been clarified many times, particularly at high-level meetings and through channels set up by mutual foreign and defense ministries.
Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov said earlier that agreements concerning the southern de-escalation zone in Syria implied that only Syrian government forces could remain on the border with Israel.
He pointed out that according to the 2017 agreements on setting up a de-escalation zone along the Syrian-Israeli border, all foreign troops must pull out of the area.
Israel has been providing military assistance to terrorists in Syria, setting up field hospitals in the Golan Heights and supporting them with deadly weapon deliveries and occasional combat airstrikes.
By occupying the Syrian Golan Heights since 1967, the IDF annexed the Jordan River water flow into the Sea of Galilei, in order to cut off agricultural water supplies to Syrian farmers.
