Putin and Netanyahu talk by phone

President Vladimir Putin and Binyamin Netanyahu held a phone conversation on Wednesday, at a high-tension moment before a US military operation in Syria. According to a Kremlin statement, the Russian president asked Israel to refrain from steps that might aggravate the critical military situation in Syria or affect Syrian security. Other sources quote Putin as asking Israel to leave Syria alone and respect its sovereignty. Netanyahu said later, in an address to the opening ceremony of Holocaust Memorial Day in Jerusalem, that he would advise Iran “not to test Israel’s resolve.”
