Israel fires missile at drone that entered from Syria

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman leads a faction meeting of his Yisrael Beytenu party in the Knesset

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

But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, briefing Israeli reporters during a visit to Moscow, signalled that Israel would not act against President Bashar al-Assad in his efforts to regain control in Syria, while working to ensure Iranian forces who support him quit the country.

Russian Federation is Assad's big-power backer in the seven-year-old civil war.

Israel says it has treated between 4,000 and 4,500 war casualties from Syria since a humanitarian aid programme was begun some five years ago.

"The IDF will continue to operate determinedly and decisively against any attempts to hurt Israeli civilians and breaches of Israeli sovereignty".

The attack near Hader village at the border of the Israeli Golan Heights caused only material damage, state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying. The plateau is not recognised internationally as Israeli territory.

"We won't take action against the Assad regime, and you get the Iranians out", the official, who requested anonymity, quoted Netanyahu as telling Putin during a meeting in Moscow.

Donald Trump says Kim Jong Un 'sees different future' for North Korea
Five US officials told NBC News that North Korea has increased its production of enriched uranium for nuclear weapons. Also high on the agenda is the issue of the remains of US soldiers missing from the 1950-53 Korean War.

Israel has been on high alert recently as Syrian rebels have advanced on the Golan area.

Israel has threatened to open fire at any Syrian government forces that try to deploy in a demilitarised Golan buffer zone set up under a 1974 United Nations -monitored armistice.

Israel has repeatedly said it will not allow Iran to establish a permanent presence in a postwar Syria. Israel worries Assad could let his Iranian allies entrench near its lines or that Syrian forces may defy a 1974 Golan demilitarization.

"The UAV infiltrated the Israeli border from Syria, the IDF said". We will discuss Syria, Iran and Israel's security needs.

A series of strikes in Syria that have killed Iranians have been attributed to Israel in recent months.

Israel seized a large swathe of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it, in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.
