Netanyahu phones Putin about the drone intrusion from Syria

The Kremlin issued a communiqué Saturday on the phone conversation between President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu: The two leaders discussed issues relating to the war on terror. They decided to continue their relations at various levels. DEBKAfile: Netanyahu made the call to Putin out of concern over a drone from Syria which penetrated Israeli air space on July 17. Some IDF intelligence and air force officers believed the intruder was Russian – not Iranian. In either case, the incident was a breach of the Russian-Israeli military-air force coordination agreement. There is no information on Putin’s response.
