Israeli Ambassador Undergoes Unkind Session with Russian Officials: Syria Strikes Unacceptable

The statement was a rare confirmation of Israel's airstrikes in Syria, where Israel has struck dozens of weapons shipments to Hezbollah, a Lebanese group linked to Iran that fights alongside the Syrian army.

In a separate development Tuesday, Israel's Shin Bet security agency said it had arrested a Palestinian employee of a humanitarian program run by the Turkish government on suspicion of diverting funds to militants. Hezbollah announced that "artillery bombardment" caused his death, while media reports blamed Israel and Sunni terrorist groups in the area.

The al-Arabiya report also stated that Nasrallah was put under pressure to remove Badreddine by Maj Gen Qasem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Corps (IRGC) elite overseas operations arm and an adviser to the Syrian military.

Mustafa Badreddine was killed in an explosion in the Syrian capital in May 2016.

The outlets added that the Israeli ambassador to Moscow underwent an unkind session with the Russian officials at the foreign ministry, noting that he was informed about the clear Russian rejection to the recent air strikes on Syria's Palmyra. However, a war monitoring group said that there had been no shelling at that time.

The Israeli military said the circumstances of the incident were being investigated, but that there was no immediate proof that classified data could be retrieved from the device, Press TV reported.

However, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday insisted that no such Russian demand had been made.

"It's simply incorrect to say the Russians are changing their policy toward us", he said.

Syria's air defense force fired anti-aircraft missiles at the Israeli planes as they were returning to base. "When we detect attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, and we have the intelligence and feasibility to carry out an operation, we will work to prevent it". It centered on the southern Lebanese border with northern Israel, and the Golan Heights, a contested territory that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War.
