"This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory".
"The Russian side called for any steps, which might trigger a new spiral of unsafe for all confrontation in the region, to be avoided", the press service said.

An unconfirmed report said that in the past several months, Iran has began using the base as if it were its own, and transferring weapons to allies in an attempt to build up its strength against Israel.
Russian Federation expressed concern over the Israeli army's airstrikes on Syria.
"We consider it necessary to unconditionally respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and other countries of the region", it added.

"Twelve targets, including three aerial defense batteries and four Iranian targets that are part of Iran's military establishment in Syria were attacked", a military statement said. Israel has also occupied the Syrian Golan Heights since 1967.
As the Israeli planes came under attack, two F-16 pilots made a decision to eject, and their plane crashed in Israel's Galilee region, Conricus said. The official said the Israeli raids hit a base in the country's central area, and called it a "new aggression".
