When asked about the attack, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “We consider that all countries should avoid any actions that lead to higher tensions in such a troubled region and call for Syrian sovereignty to be respected.”

Peskov noted that Russia and Israel were in constant contact about the situation in Syria through “various channels.”

Reuters reports that Russia, whose forces are helping President Bashar al-Assad fight Islamic State and other militant groups, regularly says it is the only foreign power operating on Syrian territory at the Syrian government’s invitation and has spoken out strongly against Turkish strikes as well as a recent U.S. strike.

Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, separately told a news briefing on Thursday that Moscow thought air strikes like Israel’s risked playing into the hands of militant groups and of complicating the search for a political solution in Syria.

“Moscow condemns acts of aggression against Syria and considers that they are unacceptable and contradict the principles and norms of international law,” said Zakharova.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Whenever we receive intelligence that indicates an intention to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, we will act.”

On Tuesday, a senior Israeli officer said that the Israel Air Force has destroyed about 100 Syrian missiles, many of which were due to be delivered to Hezbollah, in an attack last month. It was a rare admission on Israel’s part to admit they took military action in Syria.

Israel has repeatedly warned against “game-changing” weapons reaching Hezbollah from Syria, which along with Iran supports the militant group. Hezbollah fired more than 4,000 rockets on Israel in the 2006 war.
