Russia Summons Israeli Amb
By Micah Halpern
Israeli Ambassador to Russia, Alexander Ben-Zvi, was summoned by Russia’s foreign ministry. Ambassador Ben-Zvi to clarify the how and why there was an airstrike on Damascus International Airport.
Everyone had concluded Israel was behind the strike.
In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry explained that Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikahil Bogdanov had expressed to Ben-Zvi Moscow's deep concern regarding the attack, which, the Russians said, had damaged the airport's runway, navigation systems and buildings, and caused damage to international air traffic.
The ministry also stated that the attack had disrupted the inflow of humanitarian aid from the United Nations to millions of Syrians in a country ravaged by over a decade of civil war.
Bogdanov told Ben-Zvi that the explanations Jerusalem provided so far did not satisfy the Kremlin and that Moscow would not allow Syria to become the "battlefield" of other countries as Syria helps in fighting terrorism across the region.
Everyone has their own perspective.
