Russia and Israel don’t want to get in each other’s way
On Tuesday Deputy Chief of General Staff for Russia will meet with Israel’s Chief of Staff, Major General Yair Golan, in Tel Aviv over regional coordination issues regarding Russia’s military activity in Syria.
According to one source who spoke on condition of anonymity, the two will discuss “electromagnetic” coordination which refers to radar and communication technology. Each side’s concern is that neither will conflict with the other’s ability to carry out their goal.

The most important concern for Israel is to not clash with Russian forces while in Syria or undermine the ability of each to protect certain parameters. For Israel, this means that there’s another obstacle and risk involved in protecting itself, as Russia does not plan on making Israel’s security their priority.
