Russia May Close Syria’s Airspace to Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that supplying advanced weapon systems to "irresponsible players" would increase dangers in the region, Netanyahu's office said.

Israeli officials traveled to Moscow on Thursday to present its report on the accident, showing that Syria was firing dozens of barrages indiscriminately for 40 minutes following Israel's attack against a weapons depot connected to Iran, long after the Israeli planes had returned home.

In a move nearly certainly connected to an attack earlier this month by Israeli warplanes on the Syrian coast, an attack which led to the shootdown of a Russian plane, Russia has announced that they are going to deliver advanced S-300 air defense systems to Syria within the next two weeks.

"The security cabinet has instructed the IDF to continue to take action against attempts by Iran to establish a military presence in Syria while continuing the security coordination with Russian Federation", the statement read, echoing comments made by Israeli defense officials over the past week.

Earlier on Monday, the Kremlin issued a devastating critique of Israel over the incident, accusing Israel's air force of "premeditated actions", and warning that the incident would harm relations between the two countries.

Russia alleges that Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as "cover" from Syria air defenses. "We will do what is necessary to defend the security of Israel", Netanyahu concluded.

But he said there had been occasions when things had not gone smoothly, calling Syria's downing of the Russian plane "tragic".

Since the downing of the IL-20 spy plane, Israel's relationship with Moscow has appeared to be rapidly deteriorating.

According to the data, the Syrian air defense's missile was, in fact, targeting an Israeli F-16 jet before it abruptly altered its course and eventually hit the Russian aircraft. Russia-which, unlike the United States , feels no domestic political pressure to sweep under the rug a loss of its countrymen's lives due to Israeli action in a war zone-eventually had to speak out forcefully.

"It is quite clear that the missile was targeting the Israeli jet", he noted.

This dispute and its accompanying ill will are unlikely to lead to fundamental changes either in military operations in Syria or in Russian-Israeli diplomacy.

The Israeli leader also agreed with Putin on continued coordination between the two countries' armed forces.
