Israeli air strikes on Syria undesirable, says Russian security official

JERUSALEM, 25 June (Reuters) - Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said on Tuesday that Israeli air strikes on Syria were undesirable.

Israel has repeatedly attacked what it describes as Iranian targets in Syria and those of allied militia, including Lebanon’s Hezbollah. The strikes have caused friction between Israel and Russia, which apart from Iran is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s other major foreign backer.
