BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday that Israel must halt their “arbitrary strikes” in Syria, as it violates international law.

“The practice of arbitrary strikes on the territory of a sovereign state, in this case, we are talking about Syria, should be ruled out,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, in answer to a question from Russian news agency TASS about recent Israeli air strikes on Syria.

She said such strikes added to tensions in the region, something she said was not in the long-term interests of any country there, including Israel.

“We should never allow Syria, which has suffered years of armed conflict, to be turned into an arena where geopolitical scores are settled,” TASS cited her as saying.

Zakharova’s comments came shortly after her warning about the dangerous situation brewing inside the Idlib Governorate.

Actually, these strikes are not arbitrary and don’t violate international law. The fact that Iran backs, funds and arms terrorist groups/militias that attack Israel is a blatant violation of the Hague Convention (international law on war) and entitles Israel at nonetheless striking these groups/militias but also their backers = Iranian forces since such war by proxy is, according to the Hague Convention, a de-facto declaration of war by the proxy’s backer and his allies. Another point is that Iran also blatantly violates UNSC res.1701 which orders the disarmament of all Lebanese militias by doing weapons transfers to Hezbollah. Since UNSC… Read more »

I’m not sure about that but what is more interesting is that Putin and Erdogan just met and talked over Syrian conflict. Most troublesome words said from Putin regarding Syria is that “everything is going according the plan”. So, we will see…
