  • Netanyahu to hold talks with Lavrov and Gerasimov

The Russian ambassador made the remarks in an interview with Russian newspaper Kommersant, during which he also pointed to Russia's attempts to bring under control a possible military confrontation between Iran and the Israeli regime in Syria.

"There have been conflicts from time to time in Syria and we are naturally concerned about the possibility of a military confrontation between the Iranian and Israeli forces there".

Imposing unilateral sanctions on Iran is against the global nuclear deal, a special envoy of Russian Federation said on Thursday adding that the stance has been emphasized by President Vladimir Putin in talks with his American counterpart.

Israel's vigilance was underscored by the launch of its latest, USA -backed missile shield against rockets that it said were fired from within Syria but which fell short of the Golan lines.

Israeli media quoted Syrian rebel forces saying that 22 people were killed in the strike, including nine Iranians.

Netanyahu announced earlier in the day that Russian President Vladimir Putin had requested the meeting.

In a sign of heightened tensions, Israel launched two David's Sling interceptor missiles at rockets the Israeli military later said fell inside Syrian territory - part of the internal fighting there.

The Russian embassy in Israel tweeted that Lavrov and armed forces chief General Valery Gerasimov discussed with Netanyahu Assad's advance in southwest Syria and "issues related to Israel border security".

It was Israel's first published operational use of the mid-range missiles, which are jointly manufactured by USA firm Raytheon Co. At that point, one of the interceptor missiles was ordered to self-destruct, doing so over northern Israel, in the southern Golan Heights. They saw warplanes and helicopters in the sky from their position west of the Syrian town of Nawa.

He said the Russian government's determination to continue joint work to combat terror has not been undermined, and the two countries will continue to move on the same path until stability and security are fully restored to Syria.

The military did not immediately elaborate on whether the targets were shot down by David's Sling. "I have not asked for that at this point, and we'll see what direction comes down".
