Moscow revealed that in a phone call between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Russian leader "underscored the principal importance of observing the sovereignty of Syria and called for holding back from any actions that would further destabilize the situation in this country [Syria] and present threats to its security".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Jewish state remains "steadfast" in preventing Iranian aggression amid ongoing threats.

The statement by Netanyahu comes just days after Israel purportedly carried out an airstrike against a Syrian military base where Iran is also operating.

"The Syrian agenda was discussed, including recent airstrikes launched by Israeli Air Forces on the airbase Tiyas located in the Homs province", said the statement, published on the Kremlin's official website. The attack came after reports that Syria used chemical weapons in an attack on civilians.

In response, Netanyahu reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria. Netanyahu also ripped into the landmark nuclear accord reached between Teheran and world powers and said: "I have a message for the leaders of Iran: Don't test Israel's resolve".
