Israel asks Russia to update security coordination after S-300 deployed to Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladmir Putin.

(Worthy News) - The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) are said to have approached Russia's Defense Ministry to request that a security coordination mechanism between the two countries be updated in light of Moscow's deployment of S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria, according to Russian media reports.

Israel and Russia last year established a 'hotline' coordination mechanism intended to prevent misunderstandings between their air forces as Russia began carrying out airstrikes in Syria in support of President Bashar Assad's regime forces.

"In the context of the hotline between [Israel and Russia], the Israelis sent us a request to develop new procedures and open-fire rules to be added to the existing coordination mechanism," Russia's Izvestia newspaper wrote citing an unnamed source. [ Source ]
