Israel is not going to obey “no-fly” zone in Syria


The Israeli authorities informed Russia that they would strike at Syrian territory if they find it necessary.

Military sources in Israel say that Moscow’s initiative to create zones of de-escalation in Syria and banning flights of military aircraft over them is not concern of Israel.

Among the situations in which Israel does not intend to refrain from a strike, are the attempts to transfer weapons to the Lebanese group Hezbollah, and Iran’s attempts to create a new front line in the Syrian part of the Golan Heights.

However, de-escalation zones in southern Syria, adjacent to the borders of Israel and Jordan, received a warm approval from Tel Aviv.

In addition, Israel demands that any agreement on a peaceful settlement in Syria would include the establishment of a buffer zone several kilometers deep on its southern border, free of any armed formations.
