(Worthy News) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin Wednesday, the latest in a series of frequent summits between the two amid persistent tensions over the presence of Iran-backed fighters in Syria.
The meeting between the two comes days after Israel was blamed for an airstrike on a Syrian airbase near Homs thought to be used by Iranian militiamen and other Shiite fighters.
Jerusalem has also focused in recent days on keeping Syrian fighters out of a demilitarized zone on the Golan border as forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad and backed by Russian airpower look to take over the last pockets of rebel resistance in southern Syria.
