Netanyahu, Putin agree to continue coordination on Syria
The two leaders discussed the situation in Syria and recent developments, and agreed to continue coordination between Israeli and Russian militaries, according to a statement issued by the prime minister's office, Xinhua news agency reported.
Meanwhile, the Russian embassy in Israel said on its Twitter account that the discussion between Putin and Netanyahu focused on the situation in Syria, including the US decision to withdraw its troops from the country.
The two leaders emphasized the necessity to defeat terrorism and advance along the path of a political settlement in Syria, the Russian embassy said.
The tension between Israel and Russia has been on the rise since last September when a Russian aircraft was brought downed by Syrian anti-aircraft fire during an Israeli airstrike.
