Russia Summons Israeli Envoy over Airstrikes on Damascus, Says Justifications Unconvincing - Tasnim News Agency

The Israeli ambassador to Moscow was summoned by the Russian Foreign Ministry, which expressed “serious concern” over recent airstrikes against Damascus International Airport.

The Russian foreign ministry announced the summoning in a statement on Wednesday after Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met with Alexander Ben Zvi.

"Serious concern was again expressed over the June 10 Israeli air force attack on the civilian airport of Damascus," the ministry said.

The statement said the attack had damaged the runway, navigation equipment, and buildings, and disrupted international civilian air traffic.

"The ambassador was told that the justification received from the Israeli side regarding the strike ... was unconvincing and that Moscow expected additional clarification," the ministry added.
