Russia Warns Israel before Striking Syria

Israel received advance notice before Russia launched air strikes against ISIS in syria, according to defense sources.

France and the United States have said that the strikes appear to have been carried out in the Homs area against the enemies of Assad, not the Islamic State.

Israel did not receive any information on where geographically the strikes would occur.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen Gadi Eisenkott flew to Russia last week for intensive meetings with Russian officials on efforts to coordinate with Moscow amid its military roll-out in Syria.
