Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he told Russia's vice premier in talks Tuesday that Israel must continue to hit hostile targets in neighboring Syria, despite Moscow's decision to equip Damascus with advanced air defense missiles.Despite the delivery of the S-300 air defense systems to the Syrian military, Israel was committed as a matter of self-defense to continue its "legitimate activity in Syria against Iran and its proxies, which state their intention to destroy us," Netanyahu said.It was his first publicized meeting with a senior Russian official since the accidental Syrian downing of a Russian plane during an Israeli airstrike in Syria.
