Russian military officials visit Israel for Syria talks to coordinate aerial activity
The visit follows a previous meeting held between high level military officials from both countries in Moscow, which allowed for the creation of a mechanism to coordinate aerial activities.
Israel’s military confirmed the two-day meeting on “regional coordination,” which comes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin held talks last month related to Syria.
The two agreed on a mechanism to avoid “misunderstandings” and clashes in Syrian airspace between the two militaries’ jets.
Tuesday’s talks were to include Russian Deputy Chief of Staff Nikolai Bogdanovsky and his Israeli counterpart Yair Golan.
Israeli military officials reportedly fear that Russian air strikes could cut their room for manoeuver in Syria.
Several purported strikes on Iranian arms transfers to Hezbollah through Syria have occurred in recent months that were not officially acknowledged by Israeli authorities.
