US Hopes Russia Will Keep Letting Israel Hit Iran in Syria


BY TOVAH LAZAROFF, REUTERS NOVEMBER 7, 2018 21:24

The United States said on Wednesday it hoped Russia would continue to allow Israel to strike Iranian targets in Syria, despite Moscow’s supply of the S-300 air defense system to the Syrian government.

“Russia has been permissive, in consultation with the Israelis, about Israeli strikes against Iranian targets inside Syria. We certainly hope that that permissive approach will continue,” Ambassador James Jeffrey, Washington’s Syria envoy, said in a conference call with reporters.

He explained that aside from the Russian military actions in Syria, “You’ve got four other outside military forces – the Israeli, the Turkish, the Iranian and the American – all operating inside Syria right now. It’s a dangerous situation,” Jeffrey said.

Moscow said in October that it had delivered the S-300 surface-to-air missiles after it accused Israel of indirectly causing the downing of a Russian military jet by Syrian air defenses following an Israeli air strike nearby.

Like Russia, Iran is a key military supporter of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Israel regards Iran as its most dangerous enemy and has staged repeated air raids against its military and allied militias deployed in Syria.

1. Israel should stage repeated air raids against Iran's military and allied militias in Iran

Iran considers themselves the United States' most dangerous enemy.

2. The truth is that Putin has been inhumanly patient

His detractors in the US should be thankful that he's not the sort of bloodthirsty imperialist hothead that makes up our foreign policy.
