Russia strongly condemned Israel’s airstrikes at targets in Syria on July 2, and demanded that Israel stop delivering strikes in Syria, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Monday, according to TASS.

“Once again, we stress that ongoing Israeli strikes at the Syrian territory are categorically unacceptable. We strongly condemn such irresponsible actions, which violate Syria’s sovereignty and the basic norms of international law, and demand their unconditional cessation,” Zakharova said.

The burden[ against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1

Israel’s ambassador to Moscow was summoned to the Russian foreign ministry and was rebuked for the attack.

TASS noted that on July 2, Israeli warplanes fired several missiles at targets in Syria’s Tartus province wounding two civilians and damaging civil infrastructure.

Tartus, near which the attack took place, is the second-largest port city in Syria after Latakia. It is located about 15 miles from the border with Lebanon (north of Tripoli), and its port also serves as a Russian naval base. Locating its naval base in Tartus helped the Russians support the stability of the Assad regime. It also happens to be Moscow’s only naval base in the Mediterranean region, so Israel’s alleged decision to bomb nearby kind of poked the bear.
