Netanyahu traveled to Moscow on Wednesday for talks with President Vladimir Putin, who in the past has turned a blind eye to Israeli strikes on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria while making clear Russian Federation does not want Assad's rule endangered.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian Federation on Wednesday that Israel would not seek to topple its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but Moscow should encourage Iranian forces to quit Syria, a senior Israeli official said.

"Our opinion is that Iran needs to leave Syria - that's not new to you", Netanyahu told Putin ahead of their closed door meeting on Wednesday, according to a read-out of his remarks.

Spillover fire from Syria's civil war has occasionally landed in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

Al-Marsad, the Arab Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Syrian Golan, estimates that around 130,000 Syrians were displaced by Israel from the Golan during the 1967 takeover, a population that has now grown to around 430,000, many of whom live in areas hit by the continued violence in Syria.

Putin's visits with top Israeli and Iranian officials on the war on Syria highlight his efforts to act as a peace broker in Syria and the broader Middle East.

"I have set a clear policy that we do not intervene and we have not intervened".


Earlier on Wednesday, the Israeli army said the downed drone may have been on an intelligence mission.

Last month, Israel fired a missile at a drone that approached its airspace near the Syrian frontier, and in February Israel shot down what it said was an Iranian drone that entered its airspace.

"To our friends in Israel - be very careful making agreements with Russian Federation re Syria that affect US interests", tweeted South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a former Republican presidential candidate.

"The IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) holds the Syrian regime accountable for the actions carried out in its territory and warns it from further action against Israeli forces", it said in a statement.

The timing of the Putin-Netanyahu meeting Wednesday is considered not as coincidental.

The Kremlin stated that the two leaders will meet to "cover current issues related to bilateral cooperation and also the global agenda, including a Palestinian-Israeli settlement and the situation in Syria".
