The prime minister is planning to include the FIFA World Cup semi-finals on his itinerary when he visits Russian Federation this week to meet with Putin.

The military said it struck three Syrian posts "in response to the infiltration of the Syrian UAV", or unmanned aerial vehicle. Since mid-June, the Syrian army has conducted an operation in the south-west of the republic near the border with Israel against the terror group Jabhat al-Nusra (outlawed in Russia) and armed groups supporting it.

While formally neutral on the civil war, Israel has carried out scores of air strikes on suspected Iranian or Hezbollah deployments and arms transfers in Syria, seeing these as a greater threat than Assad and warning him not to abet them. Netanyahu's government has made clear it would not now cede the Golan and has been lobbying for USA recognition of Israel's claim of sovereignty there.

In Israel, this is all being viewed as a recipe for war. "Let's have a thorough talk about them", Putin told Netanyahu before the meeting. But it is unclear how much clout Netanyahu has with Putin yet.

The IRGC officer also warned that Lebanon's Hezbollah militia, which is participating in the war in Syria against Islamist militants, has some 100,000 missiles aimed at Israel.

Israeli forces attacked Syrian regime military positions near the Golan Heights border in the early hours of Thursday, causing limited damage, Syrian state media said.

Watched by Israeli soldiers with night-vision equipment, one woman - carrying one child and holding the hand of another - stepped through a gate built into Israel's security fence in the occupied Golan Heights.

The two leaders are expected to discuss those meetings as well.

Previously, the Israeli Air Force bombed the Syrian military's positions at the T-4 Airport in eastern Homs.

"Because Russian military forces are operating just over the northern mountains of Israel in Syria and Israel doesn't have a military conflict with Russia and it does not want a military conflict with Russia", Rosenberg told CBN News.

"It was a very important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin", Netanyahu said on Facebook.
