Netanyahu has arrived in Moscow, we have agreements with Israel and Syria. There are those who do not like that we have been able to reach an agreement, and of having friendly relations with Israel – that is why they aggravate the situation in such a way, trying to make us angry, but they will not be able to do so. they know we have kept our word, so that will not happen, "said Oleg Glazunov.
Israeli aviation regularly attacks Syria from Lebanon's airspace. In particular, in early May, in response to a missile attack, the Israeli Air Force reported having attacked dozens of targets allegedly belonging to Iran in Syria and anti-aircraft bombs.
