Russian Federation summoned the Israeli ambassador to Moscow on Tuesday, a day after the Kremlin condemned the alleged Israeli attack on an Syrian airbase, Israel's Foreign Ministry said.

Israel did not officially comment on the attack.

PlayStation 5 unlikely to be released before 2020
As it stands, the earliest release date for the PlayStation 5 at this moment seems to be sometime in the year 2020. So even if a studio did have its hands on a devkit, not everyone at a studio might know about it.

Seven Iranian military personnel were killed at the T-4 facility, Iran's Tasnim news agency reported.

According to the Kuwaiti newspaper report on March 29, "Two Israeli Aidr stealth jets flew undetected over Syria and Iraq and snuck into Iranian airspace, flying reconnaissance missions over the Iranian cities Bandar Abbas, Esfahan, and Shiraz". Isaac Herzog is the leader of Israel's Zionist Union opposition party.

Taking a dig at Gandhi, Patra told reporters that "he can not wake up in morning to start his fast on schedule". The fast was replicated across the country by Congress workers in all state and district headquarters.

Yaakov Amidror, a former Israeli national security adviser, said Iran has "an open issue with us" over the air base strike. This is likely because Israel has regularly attacked Syria for years now, without such a pretext. "Iran is a risky and serious enemy that should not be underestimated", Zeev Elkin, a member of the security forum, said on Army Radio before it convened.

Though there has been some mention of the alleged Saturday chemical weapons attack in Douma, Israel has largely not focused on that as a justification for their attacks in Syria. "Israel is determined not to let them do that". At the same time, Israel responded by emphasizing its determination to hinder Iranian military presence in Syria. "The second trend is Israel's feeling that neither Washington nor Moscow are willing to do anything about it, which in turn forces Israel to take additional risks".

The driver was a German citizen, said Herbert Reul, state minister for internal affairs in North Rhine-Westphalia state. Ms Adomeit went on to say there was no indication the perpetrator had any political motives for the attack.

"By striking the base once again, Israel sends the message that Russia simply can not ignore this trend, both because of the risks it implies, and because Russian and Iranian soldiers are physically working a few feet away from each other", he said. "It only remains for it to operate militarily and independently to curb the Iranian foothold in Syria, in the hope that its military activity will not devolve into an overall confrontation".
