(Worthy News) - Russia and Israel share the goal of removing all foreign troops from Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the weekly cabinet meeting.

Netanyahu, discussing his meeting in Moscow last week with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that Iran was the focus of the talks, and that he and Putin agreed on the need to remove all foreign forces that arrived in Syria after the start of the civil war there in 2011.

Diplomatic sources said last week that this would exclude Russia, which had a military presence in Syria even before the beginning of the civil war. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
