Vladimir Putin has warned Israeli PM Netanyahu to back away from Syria immediately, or face “dire consequences” as a result.

Following Israel’s air raids in Syria, Putin telephoned Netanyahu, urging him to “avoid any steps that could lead to a new round of confrontation dangerous to everyone in the region,” according to the Kremlin.

Rt.com reports: The Israeli Prime Minister meanwhile told the Russian leader that Israel will defend itself against any “Iranian threats” coming from the territory of Syria. Tel Aviv maintains it is vital to its national security to target Iranian interest in Syria as well as prevent potential arms shipments to Hezbollah.

“I reiterated to him [Putin] our right and our duty to defend ourselves against aggression against us from Syrian territory. We agreed the security coordination between our armies will continue,” Netanyahu said at a press conference on Saturday evening, where he blamed Iran for the Saturday’s incident.

Insisting that “Israel seeks peace,” the PM vowed that Israelis “will continue to defend ourselves with determination against any attack against us and against any attempt by Iran to establish a military presence against us in Syria or anywhere else.”

Netanyahu also announces that he spoke with the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson following the escalation of tensions. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, commenting on Israeli military action in Syria, stressed that the United States “strongly supports” Israel’s right to defend itself. “Iran’s calculated escalation of threat and its ambition to project its power and dominance, places all the people of the‎ region – from Yemen to Lebanon – at risk,” she said, echoing Netanyahu’s remarks.

“I have been warning for some time about the dangers of Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria. Iran seeks to use Syrian territory to attack Israel for its professed goal of destroying Israel,” Netanyahu told the press conference.

    How long will it be before the man on the street will accept the fact that the jew state is there for one reason and one only. That is to stir the pot in the gulf and middle east arena. Booboo is just as corrupt as any American politician and he is there doing his job and accepting six to nine million dollars/day in assistance from the American taxpayer. The zionist state is 100% dependent on the government of the U.S. for its livelyhood and booboo is the number one man with his hand out. If the main stream American knew all there is to know about Israel they would die a natural death tomorrow morning.
