The friendship between Russia and Israel has limits that Tel Aviv should not go beyond


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin have friendly relations, which have been illustrated many times by the actions of the Russian and Israeli sides in resolving certain issues. However, according to Al-Monitor, there are certain areas of interaction, on which it is not easy to find a compromise.


On February 19, the Syrian authorities, mediated by Moscow, agreed to release an Israeli citizen who had previously been detained while crossing the border with Syria. In response, the Israelis released two Syrian shepherds who were arrested for illegally crossing the border with Israel, and also reduced the term of imprisonment for Nahal al-Makat from the Druze settlement of Majdal Shams. In addition, Israel agreed to purchase a number of doses of Sputnik V anticancer vaccines from Russia and then donate them to the Syrian authorities.

Relations between Russia and Israel have many directions, including the military one. Cooperation in this area is manifested in Syria, where the parties coordinate the actions of their aviation forces. However, the main goal of Tel Aviv in this region is the fight against pro-Iranian groups that threaten the security of Israel. Moscow's task is to keep Bashar al-Assad in power.

In this regard, the Russians are turning to their Israeli counterparts with a request for timely provision of information about such threats emanating from the territory of Syria. In any case, according to Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, his country's air force will not hesitate to destroy units hostile to Israel in the SAR.

The Kremlin is also trying to play a certain mediating role in the reconciliation between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian groups Fatah and Hamas, and Israel is aware of the efforts of the Russian Federation in this direction, as well as the warm relations of these organizations with Moscow.

Netanyahu is well aware that his friendship with Putin has its limits

- thinks Al-Monitor, speaking about the preference of the Israelis to avoid confrontation with the Russians because of the sponsoring of Iran's interaction with the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.

    Al-Monitor doesn't understand that there is no friendship between states?

        Are they friends? belay Friendship between heads of state is even more misleading. Assad, if anything, was friends with Erdogan, but Nicholas II had a cousin Willie.

        In my opinion, Al-Monitor himself does not understand what he is writing about, so the fulfillment of the plan for the number of characters in the article. If so the limit of friendship is indicated.

        speaking about the preference of the Israelis to avoid confrontation with the Russians because of the sponsoring of Iran's interaction with the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.

        Israel prefers to avoid confrontation with Russia, while Iran interacts with Hamas ....
        The question is who is sponsoring whom? Russia Iran's interaction with Hamas? belay Seriously? laughing And Israel is trying not to aggravate? Is that sponsoring to continue? And if he stops avoiding confrontation, then apparently Russia will stop sponsoring Iran's friendship with Hamas? Or is Israel sponsoring Iran's engagement with Hamas?

          Assad was friends with Erdogan

          This is not true. Erdogan has always hated Assad and brought the situation to conflict back in 2010.

            You confirm no friendship between the heads of state. There was a bit of sarcasm there.

    The article in Arabic Al-Monitor, at least as it appears in this retelling, is meaningless.

    Friendship, not friendship - all the same, even if an unknown Al-Monitor has examined it.
    More important is how many Jews there are in the government, TV, showmen, rich people and "experts"

    The friendship between Russia and Israel has limits that Tel Aviv should not go beyond

    Let's change the word friendship for "good relationship". And yes, Israel should not go beyond the designated limits! As well as Russia! Good relations are generally built on this, why should relations between Israel and Russia be built on a different principle?
    Israel is forced to put up with Russia's interests, which do not always coincide with those of Israel; Russia also proceeds from this approach. A good relationship is beneficial to both parties.

      It's just that some adherents here believe that Russia acts as a gigimon in the region, and a country like Israel, which is not very visible on the world map, should kneel down and try very hard not to anger the "dad". But in fact, it turns out that the "dad" has to reckon with the interests of Israel, which is VERY disliked by the armchair patriots ...

        The usual great-power chauvinism.
