  • Russia to Keep Up Cooperation with Iran in All Areas: Envoy

An explosion is pictured at Quneitra at the Syrian side of the Israeli Syrian border, as seen from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, Israel on Sunday.

Israel has carried out numerous raids inside Syria since 2017, targeting regime forces and their allies from Iran and Hezbollah.

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.

Israel launched its newest air defence system on Monday on the Syrian frontier, where Damascus's Russian-backed forces have been routing rebels, as Moscow sent envoys for what it called "urgent" talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Russian Military Chief-of-Staff Valery Vasilyevich Gerasimov will also attend the discussion.

Votel's remarks come after President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Helsinki earlier this week and made "important verbal agreements" on increased cooperation between Washington and Moscow on worldwide security matters, according to the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

Hours before the meeting Israel intercepted rockets from the fighting in Syria it believed were heading its way.

Ravouvou put the result beyond doubt with his second try with just two minutes remaining after a brilliant offload by Jona Nareki. The New Zealand men's team also progressed in the tournament, despite poor discipline threatening to derail in their campaign.

It was Israel's first published operational use of the mid-range interceptors.

The Russian foreign ministry said the meeting also addressed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and "the goal of ending the anti-terrorist operation in southern Syria, and ensuring security along the Israeli border".

Israeli warplanes have conducted many attacks on military positions in Syria's Hama province.

"There are examples of jointly reached agreements that were derailed in an instant, I mean the unilateral withdrawal of the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iran nuclear program", he said.

When asked about the reports of the air strike, an Israeli military spokeswoman said: "We do not comment on foreign reports".

A series of strikes that have killed Iranians in Syria have been attributed to Israel.
