In a phone call between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, the two leaders discussed the agreed upon “safe-zones” in Syria between Russia with Iran and Turkey.
While Netanyahu did not express opposition to the arrangement in the call, according to an unnamed senior Israeli official to Haaretz, he warned that such “safe zones” must not allow Iran or Hezbollah (primarily based in Lebanon) to establish bases near Israel’s borders.
