Press release on Israeli air strikes in Syria

Saturday, 10 February 2018 13:11

According to incoming information, Israeli aircraft delivered several missile strikes at targets in Syria, including those at the border of the southwestern de-escalation zone, in the night and morning of February 10. Syrian losses and material damage are being specified. Reports say one Israeli military aircraft was shot down in the area of the Golan Heights.

Moscow is gravely concerned over the latest developments and the attacks on Syria. A matter of special concern is the danger of a new escalation of tension within and around the de-escalation zones that have become an important factor in reducing the violence on Syrian soil. It will be recalled that the Syrian governmental forces have been honouring all existing agreements designed to ensure the stable functioning of the de-escalation zone in southwestern Syria.

We are insistently calling on all parties involved to display restraint and avoid any actions capable of leading to an even greater complication of the situation. We consider it necessary that the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and other countries in the region be respected unconditionally. Creating threats to life and security of Russian service personnel, who are in the Syrian Arab Republic at the invitation of its legitimate government in order to assist the fight against terrorists, is absolutely unacceptable.
