Hezbollah: Israel Attacking Syria To Prevent ISIS Defeat

Russia Summons Israeli Envoy Over Concern About Air Strikes In Syria Israel: Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine 'killed by own men'

Russia's foreign ministry yesterday summoned Israel's ambassador over air strikes close to Moscow's forces near the historic Syrian city of Palmyra.

Russia's foreign ministry on Friday summoned Israel's ambassador to explain the activity - the first time Israel has been asked to do so since Russian Federation entered the Syrian war two years ago.

Syria's army high command said Israeli jets attacked a target near Palmyra, in what it described as an act of aggression that aided Isis.

On Sunday, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to destroy Syria's air defence systems "without the slightest hesitation" if it happened again.

Israel fired its Arrow interceptor missile to knock down one of the surface-to-air rockets headed for its territory, forcing the nation's army to issue a rare confirmation that it had carried out an attack inside Syria.

The Israeli military denied that any planes had been hit.

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah accused Israel of helping ISIS in Syria by carrying out airstrikes in the country.

That includes the Arrow, created to intercept long-range ballistic missiles in the stratosphere with an eye on Iran, and Iron Dome, which defends against short-range rockets from Gaza.

An IDF statement said "several anti-aircraft missiles" were fired following the raid but that none hit their targets.

Nasrallah, however, said that Israel has been using "all kinds of excuses" throughout the war to intervene, and that what they are really afraid of is an ISIS defeat, because that would mean a Hezbollah victory.

Israel and Syria are still technically at war, though the border had remained largely quiet for decades until 2011 when the Syrian conflict broke out.

Israel's military said it had been targeting weapons bound for Lebanon's Hezbollah movement, which backs the damascus regime in Syria.
