BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – During his visit to Sochi on Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin that his country must be allowed to act freely against Iran.

The meeting, which is the first in several months, was focused on increased coordination between Russia and Israel in Syria, the Reuters News Agency reported.

“Security coordination between us is always important, but it is especially important now, since in the past month there has been a serious increase in attempts by Iran to hit Israel from Syria and to place there precision missiles to use against us,” Netanyahu said at the start of the meeting.

The meeting took place just days after Israel allegedly carried out an attack on a base belonging to an Iranian-backed Iraqi paramilitary faction in the Syrian city of Albukamal.

While Hezbollah denied any casualties, local reports alleged that as many as 18 Iraqi fighters were killed during the strikes.

Israel has yet to comment on these allegations; they have also not confirmed that their warplanes were behind the July 19th strikes on the Hashd Al-Sha’abi (var. Popular Mobilization Units) base in Iraq’s Salaheddine Governorate.

Iraq said they are still investigating the attack, but several officials have already blamed Israel for the strikes.

These inhuman kikès not only are liars, but they are also cowards.. if he wants so bad to attack Iran why doesn’t he and his child murderers that he calls soldiers man up and march to Iran n fight ? There is a simple answer , they have no b***s and they know Iran woulda destroy them in hours.. they won’t be able to strike Iran without the help of his puppets.. because alone we all know they have no chances, Hezbollah victories are the example of that.

I’d love you to come to do a revisionist/negationist conference in my country.

This statement of Netanyahu was more likely in response to the recent report that allegedly Soviet SU-37s flying over Syria intercepted a potential Israeli bombing attack on that country.

There is no Su-37, and Soviets are long long gone. Russia, from some points, is even more capitalist than the West, even if some key points like energy or defence industries are still state-held.

Marg bar – down with or death to, and Russia is more democratic than the US and just as democratic as France. France also has state owned defense industries.

So Russia restricts the options in the Middle East for this criminal. He said Iran will never have peace, so does he. He is so blinded by his extremism he is not capable of seeing reality.

Nethanyahu is a desperate liar and has been responsible for killing Russians in Syria and has the hide to criticize Iran which is helping Russia defeat US and Zionist sponsored Wahhabi terrorism.

Obviously the Zionist demands because the Czar said NJET before.

At the same time, even with the Yankees saying “NO WAY!”, the number of times they acted despite US pushed them into using diplomacy, e.g. the attack on the Syrian nuke reactor in Deir-Ezzor when Bush pressured them like hëll into playing the IAEA card.

More crapola out of the Criminal Nuttyyahoo. You can also expect to be bombed back but that is the point. The Guy is desperate for a war with Lebanon and Israel. He’ll do anything. Respect for Syria for not taking the bait and taking the higher ground, for now. Russian Determents forthcoming.
