Instead of running to Putin again, why didn't Netanyahu call Assad?

The two leaders were on good terms in 2010, and even later. Then the Israeli military got deeply involved with the Saudi regime. Now the Israeli air force is bombing Syrian army positions, which is helping al Qaeda. This is very bad behavior. Very bad. I am very upset with Bibi. He needs to stop treating Assad as if he doesn't exist. Talking past him to the Russians and Americans. How would he like it, if Trump refused to talk to him about Israeli matters and instead talked only to Jordan's king about them?

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force carried out a powerful attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last night, targeting the latter’s positions in the western countryside of the Al-Quneitra Governorate.

According to a military report, the Israeli Air Force struck at least three Syrian Army posts near the Qars Nafel Hill and several other points near the towns of Samdaniyah Al-Sharqiyah, Umm Batna and Dawha.

The Syrian Air Defense attempted to intercept the attack, but was only able to shoot down the Israeli missiles near the town of Umm Batna and Kroum Hill.

Following the Israeli airstrikes, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham [al Qaeda] took the opportunity to launch a quick offensive in order to capture some ground against the Syrian Arab Army in the Al-Quneitra Governorate.

This jihadist offensive would ultimately fail after a short battle with both the Syrian Arab Army and Al-Quneitra Hawks faction of the National Defense Forces (NDF).

Last night’s attack against the Syrian Army by the Israeli Air Force marks the second time this week that they have targeted the government’s positions inside Syria.

Previously, the Israeli Air Force bombed the Syrian military’s T-4 Airport in eastern Homs; this attack reportedly targeted the barracks at this imperative installation west of Palmyra.
