Israel has vowed to destroy all Iranian factilities in Syria within 40 km from the Israel-occupied Gloan Heights, the Kuwaiti daily newspaper Al-Jarida reported citing an anonymous Israeli source.
The source also speculated that this Israeli message was delivered to Russian President Vladimir Putin by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This allegedly took place during Assad’s meeting with Putin earlier this week.
Furthermore, the report claimed that Putin called Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and said that he would be glad to accept these conditions.
While it’s clear that Tel Aviv occupies a very hostile attitude towards the Iranian involvement in the Syrian conflict and towards the Syrian government in general, experts believe that the key part of the report (Putin’s support to Tel Aviv) is just another example of fairy stories pushed by the Israeli side to strengthen its diplomatic position in the region.
Tel Aviv and Israeli media have repeatedly claimed that they have found a common ground with Russia to limit the Shia influence in Syria. In turn, any observer is able to see the strengthening Syrian-Iranian-Russian relations and the growing influence of Iran and Hezbollah in Syria and in the region, in general.
