Israel shoots down Syria drone; Netanyahu meets Putin

Israel shoots down Syria drone; Netanyahu meets Putin”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian Federation on Wednesday that Israel does not intend to threaten Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's rule and asked Moscow to work to remove Iranian forces from Syria, an Israeli official said.

The patients, Israeli medical officials said, were not the walking wounded of the seven-year-old Syrian civil war but children with chronic health problems coming across the frontier for a day's treatment in a hospital in northern Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled to Russia Wednesday to meet with Kremlin President Vladimir Putin, for visit he called a "very important".

The IDF spokesman confirmed that a Syrian UAV was intercepted by a Patriot missile.

"They are treated in hospital and go back the same day", said Major Sergei Kutikov, an Israeli military health officer. The army said it will "not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt our civilians".

He added that military officials believe the drone was Syrian and that it could have been on an intelligence collecting mission, but it was not yet clear if it purposely entered Israel or strayed from its path.

Israel says it has treated between 4,000 and 4,500 war casualties from Syria since a humanitarian aid program was begun some five years ago.

Russian Federation was already working to distance Iranian forces from Syrian areas near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and had proposed that they be kept 80km away, but this fell short of Israel's demand for a full exit, the official said. It bombed Iranian targets in Syria in response to that incident.

Both the United States and Israel are concerned about Iran's growing military presence in Syria, where it has provided crucial aid to Assad's forces.

Russian Federation is Assad's big-power backer in the seven-year-old civil war.

Israel has been on high alert as Assad's forces advance on rebels in the vicinity of the Golan Heights, much of which Israel captured from Syria in 1967 and annexed in a move not recognized internationally.
