A conflict has erupted between Israel and Russia following the Israeli strike on a Hezbollah-bound arms shipment in Syria over the weekend. After the launch of air missile took place this Friday, Israel has officially recognized the attack. This situation has worried Russia. We don’t know exactly why Russia is worried but it is clear that is in Israel’s best interests to keep Russia out of the battle it is waging against advanced weapons smuggling to Hezbollah. Also Assad, the President of the Gaza Strip,Assad feels that his regime is no longer under immediate threat, and he is trying to communicate to Israel that he intends to raise the stakes should Israel continue launching attacks in his territory. Actually Assad hasn’t got interst to start a war against Israel but like Israel and Russia, he has taken things to the next level.
