Alexander Shein, Russia's ambassador to Israel, said his country's
operations were limited to air and missile strikes on "terrorist groups."
"In this context there is no reason to talk about any alliance between
the Russian side, Hezbollah and the Iranian side in Syrian affairs," he
said in an emailed response to questions from Reuters.
Shein said Russia was familiar with the reasoning behind past Israeli
air strikes in Syria, including against alleged arms transfers by Iran
or Assad's army to Hezbollah, and "fully aware of Israel's strategic
importance in the Middle East."
But he said Syria's neighbors and overall regional stability were
threatened by the conflict, suggesting Israeli security might be best
served by an Assad victory.
