Syrian state media reported on Monday that Israeli tank shells hit a demolished hospital and an observation post in Syria’s southern Quneitra province near the border with Israel.
“We are constantly operating according to our assessments and needs to prevent Iran and its satellites from forming bases near our northern border or in our area at all,” Netanyahu said at a naval base in Haifa, adding: “We do whatever is necessary.”
The Israeli military refused to comment on the report, saying that it does not react to foreign reports on attacks in Syria.
Russia warned Israel on Friday that it must stop conducting airstrikes in Syria, according to the Russian news outlet Sputnik News.
“With regard to the latest Israeli attacks, we said that such arbitrary attacks on sovereign Syrian territory should be stopped and excluded,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin said, Sputnik reported.
Netanyahu is set to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 21 in Moscow following brief talks that took place at the Paris Peace Forum in November, as well as a series of phone calls between the two leaders.
The meeting comes after tensions between the two countries rose in recent weeks following Israeli airstrikes on Damascus Airport last month. Twenty-one people were killed in the extensive strike, according to a war watchdog. At least 12 of them were members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
