Russia Demands Israel Halt All Attacks On Syria Immediately

by David Mark

In a stunning escalation between Russia and Israel, the Russian government has issued a serious condemnation and warning to Israel, that it must stop its airstrikes against Iranian positions in Syria.

Gone are the days when Israel was able to freely attack Iranian positions in Syria, while making sure to stay away from Russian interests in the Levant.

As the Bennett-Abbas government has now slipped into the Lapid-Abbas government, Putin’s demands appear to be rising on the Jewish State. Whether this is a product of Lapid’s own strong stance against Russian aggression in Ukraine or its just a matter of changing needs for the Russian ruler, Russia is coming hard against Israel.

“We strongly condemn such irresponsible actions that violate the sovereignty of Syria and the basic norms of international law, and we demand their unconditional cessation,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

This statement was made after Israel undertook a rare daytime mission to strike at an Iranian shipment of advanced arms in the Syrian port of Tartus. Tartus also houses many Russian military personnel and equipment.

The fact is, Russia and Syria are increasingly becoming intertwined in ways most could not have foreseen. To say that Russian President Putin has his eyes on Israel would be an understatement. The largest contingent of Russian military outside of the Ukrainian theater is Syria. The Russian President’s increasingly belligerent tone against Israel should be seen for what it is – a drive to fulfill a pseudo religious campaign to restore Russian hegemony and the realization of the Russian Empire reborn.

In this light, Israel should rightly be nervous given that they are in the middle of another grueling election campaign, while their caretaker Prime Minister Yair Lapid is untested, inexperienced, and worried more about speechmaking than hard decisions.
