Russia Fires at Israeli Jets in Syria: Report

Russian forces in Syria have fired at least twice on Israeli military aircraft, Israeli newspaper reported.
The Yedioth Ahronoth daily on Friday gave no dates or locations for the incidents nor any indication Israeli planes were hit.Israeli warplane
Separately, Israeli Channel 10 TV said a Russian warplane approached an Israeli warplane off the Mediterranean coast of Syria last week but that there was no contact between them.
The Zionist entity has repeatedly violated Syrian airspace and bombed targets inside the country which is fighting foreign-backed militants.
Israeli media claimed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu raised the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his visit to Moscow on Thursday.
But the Kremlin on Friday denied the two had discussed the alleged incidents involving Russian forces in Syria and Israeli military aircraft.
Israeli media had claimed that Tel Aviv was quick to set up an operational hotline with Moscow designed to avoid trading fire with Russian forces.
“In this case, Israeli press reports are far from reality,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with journalists.
Peskov, however, declined to comment on whether Russian forces in Syria had fired on Israeli military airplanes.
“I will not comment because it is a newspaper report and I do not want to speak about it,” Peskov told reporters, according to Interfax news agency.
