Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov To Visit Israel For Syria Talks

Israeli jets reportedly struck an Iranian-supervised military facility in northwest Syria that in the past allegedly was used to produce chemical weapons including sarin gas.

Iran and Russian Federation back Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's seven-year-long civil war, while the United States backs rebels fighting against Assad's rule.

Netanyahu has also pledged to keep Iran from entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria, where Tehran is supporting President Bashar al-Assad in his country's civil war.

Moscow has put forward plans to Washington to cooperate on the return of refugees to war-torn Syria, the Russian ministry of defence said Friday, days after a summit between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.

"There was a discussion between President Trump and President Putin about the resolution in Syria and how we might get the refugees back", he said.

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.

It was Israel's first published operational use of the mid-range interceptors. The incident triggered sirens in northern Israel and on the Golan.

Ahead of the meeting, Ali Akbar Velayati, an worldwide adviser to the Iranian Supreme Leader, visited Moscow and held talks with Putin. They saw warplanes and helicopters in the sky from their position west of the Syrian town of Nawa.

The aggressive airstrikes injured two people, said the director of Masyaf National Hospital.

The military did not immediately elaborate on whether the targets were shot down by David's Sling.

The source requested anonymity as the Israeli military had yet to carry out a formal investigation.

"Despite threats from the USA, I see no obstacles to the implementation of these projects and the two countries' cooperation will continue in all fields".
