Russia calls for restraint after received reports on Israeli strikes in Syria

TASS– In connection with the information about the Israeli air strikes on targets in Syria, including on those at the border of de-escalation zone in south-west, the Russian Foreign Ministry calls on all involved parties to express restraint and not to allow escalation in the region.

“We are calling on all the involved parties to express restraint and avoid any actions, which may cause the situation’s aggravation,” the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday. “We consider it necessary to respect absolutely Syria’s and the region’s other countries’ sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Moscow considers it inadmissible to make threats for the Russian military deployed in Syria “at request from the Syrian legal government to support the country in fighting terrorism,” the Russian ministry said.
