Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday condemned Israeli airstrikes against Iran-backed sites in Syria, saying that Israel should convey intelligence information to Russia who will neutralize the threats rather than striking Syria on its own.

“If Israel is really forced to respond to threats to the Israeli security coming from the Syrian territory, we have told our Israeli colleagues many times: if you see such threats please give us the information,” Lavrov said at a press conference, according to the Kremlin’s Sputnik news site.

“So, our dear Israeli colleagues, if you have facts that your state is facing threats from the Syrian territory, report the facts urgently and we will take every measure to neutralize the threat.”

Lavrov’s remarks were made shortly after Israel allegedly carried out particularly heavy strikes on Iran-backed targets in Syria, reportedly with the help of US intelligence.

  1. A fox once walked on a riverbank he saw the fish swimming to and fro…
    He said, “Fish, if you see a fisherman tell me and I’ll take care of him..,”
    The fish said, “Maybe your intention is to follow the fisherman so you can eat his catch!”

  2. The Wolf guarding the sheep?
    Sure, let the Russians know that you have spotted a problem. They will politely advise their Syrian friends how the Israelis have seen what they are up to so they should be more sly in future! Anyone gullible enough to fall for these lies is very naive.
