"However, as analyst Dr. Aaron Lerner of IMRA (Independent Media Review and Analysis) noted, Israel could have been heavily criticized in the international arena for its attack – but it wasn't. This "reflects a significant achievement by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that is mostly ignored" Lerner writes.Netanyahu, who visited Russia last month, has apparently reached an understanding with Russian President Putin, Lerner writes, "that allows [Israel], under various circumstances, to attack both Syrian and Hezbollah military targets within Syria - despite the deployment of a protective Russian anti-aircraft umbrella covering the entire country."


Lerner added that he "doubts" Israel would have had a similar understanding with the U.S. if it was an American umbrella.


The Israeli response was not totally overlooked on the Arab side: Iranian commander Brig.-Gen. Khosro Orouj of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) criticized Russia earlier this month because "the anti-aircraft systems that Russia has brought to Syria shouldn’t allow even one single [enemy[] aircraft to fly over the country - but this is not happening."

Interesting. The present U.S. administration seems to support Hamas and Hezbollah. I don't believe Americans do.

Russia and the US have certainly been edging in that direction.
