Russian Forces in Syria fired on Israeli aircraft

Russian
forces in Syria have fired at least twice on Israeli military aircraft,
prompting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to seek improved operational
coordination with Moscow, Israel's top-selling newspaper said on Friday. The
unsourced report in
Yedioth Ahronoth gave
no dates or locations for the incidents nor any indication Israeli planes were
hit. Russia mounted its military intervention in Syria in September to shore
Damascus up amid a now 5-year-old rebellion. Separately, Israel's Channel 10 TV
said a Russian warplane approached an Israeli warplane off the Mediterranean
coast of Syria last week but that there was no contact between them. Visiting
Moscow on Thursday, Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin in
televised remarks: "I came here with one main goal - to strengthen the
security coordination between us so as to avoid mishaps, misunderstandings and
unnecessary confrontations."
