(Worthy News) - Israel has reportedly asked Russia to ensure that Syrian government forces do not harm or massacre civilians in the south of the war-torn country as they complete their takeover of the area bordering Israel’s Golan Heights from rebel groups.
Israeli officials passed on the message to the Kremlin via diplomatic channels, Hadashot news reported Monday night, as the Syrian government regained control of the frontier for the first time in seven years, after Islamic State-linked militants gave up their last pocket of territory in the area.
Israel has been carrying out operations to this effect, the report said, without giving any specifics. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
