"However, we said that after the strikes [by the US, France and the United Kingdom on Syria], Russia reserves the right to do whatever it deems necessary", Peskov explained.

Vladimir Kozhin said on Friday that Russian Federation was neither supplying S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Syria nor negotiating a potential delivery to Damascus. Moscow, though, does not wish to draw too much attention to this convergence.

Iranian hardliners - who have long opposed President Hassan Rouhani's moves to improve ties with the West - are already mobilising against the efforts to save the nuclear deal.

France and Germany have urged Israel and Iran to exercise restraint and avoid further escalation of hostilities in the Middle East after the heaviest military exchange ever between the two regional adversaries. Thus, Netanyahu both called for and welcomed Trump's announcement that the U.S.is withdrawing from the JCPOA.

"We hit nearly the entire Iranian infrastructure in Syria".

He added that Syria has the right to defend itself "against the aggressors".

Iran, then, will probably attack directly.

But appearances can be deceiving. Iran is too powerful now to risk a large-scale confrontation with Israel. It immediately retaliated with airstrikes that killed some Iranian fighters and destroyed a large number of Iranian bases in Syria.

"For now, we're not talking about any deliveries of new modern (air defense) systems", Russian newspaper Izvestia cited Kozhin as saying when asked about the possibility of supplying Syria with S-300.
The battle to decide the fate of the Assad regime, after all, is largely over. "It is true that Iran and Russian Federation are allies in Syria, but there are differences between them about the future control of this country, and who gets more spoils". Victorious alliances often fracture after the common goal has been achieved and the erstwhile allies pursue different, competing goals. And Tehran does have ambitions in Syria that Moscow does not share. Like with Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Iranian model in Iraq is a combination of armed militia and political clout, with religious sectarian overtones. Russia, by contrast, has strong economic and security ties to Israel that it wants to continue and expand. "There is, indeed, enough evidence of the Israeli support to these terrorist groups... and this incident clearly demonstrates their destructive policy in assisting those groups for the objective destabilizing the region", wrote Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo, in a letter addressed to Antonio Guterres, and revealed in parts by Sputnik.

However, Kojin's statements after Netanyahu's talks with Putin in Moscow indicate that the Israeli prime minister's pressure has borne fruit, at least for now. It would not be out of the question for the Saudis to join in responding to an Iranian attack on Israel, especially if Hezbollah is involved.

Putin, though, may not succeed in this.

"They are not acting in your interest; they are only hurting you". Russia's 2015 intervention in Syria changed the strategic balance decisively in favour of Bashar al-Assad's regime.
