Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Israel against any further aggression on Syria, media reports say.
During a Tuesday phone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Putin said that “Russia would not tolerate further Israeli attacks on Damascus and would respond.”

Israeli Debka website quoted Putin as saying that Russia would not allow Israel, United States or anyone to launch military action on Syria.

Putin said that he had ordered the acceleration of highly advanced Russian weapons supplies to Syria.

Putin’s warning comes after Israel’s attacked on Syrian soil on Sunday which left at least 15 people dead, according to a letter submitted by Syrian foreign ministry to United Nations.

According to the report, the Russian president said that Moscow will act against western attempts aimed at toppling Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Russia and the US are at odds over the Syria crisis. While US supports anti-Damascus militants seeking to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad, Russia remains a supporter of his government.

Russia accuses the West of worsening the Syrian conflict by calling for the ouster of Assad.

A US Senator introduced a bill on Tuesday that would provide weapons to terrorist groups fighting in Syria.

Moscow has voiced its strong opposition to arming militants in Syria, stressing that any such move would breach international law.

  1. News reports claim the Russians are considering sending advanced S-300 air defense systems to Syria as well – time may be running out for the West to end this war soon. Suddenly arming some of the rebels and setting up safe zones on the borders of Syria are sounding better and better.
