Netanyahu, Putin to meet for first time since crisis

breaking israel news putin netanyahu

(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet shortly for the first time since relations were badly strained following last month’s Syrian downing of a Russian intelligence plane.

Netanyahu made the announcement at the start of Sunday’s weekly cabinet meeting.

Russia blamed Israel for indirect responsibility in the downing of the plane, since it followed an Israeli attack on September 17 on an Iranian target near Latakia. As a result, Russia transferred S-300 advanced anti-aircraft missiles to Syria last week, significantly complicating Israeli maneuverability in Syrian airspace.
