"Upon an initiative of the Israeli side, a telephone conversation took place between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu", Sputnik, a Russian government-owned news agency, reported Wednesday, quoting the Kremlin.

Putin "stressed the importance of respecting Syria's sovereignty", and the two leaders "discussed recent Israeli air strikes against the T-4 air base", the statement added. The attack left 14 people dead, including seven Iranian soldiers. "The notorious White Helmets, who operate as part of terrorist groups, staged and filmed a chemical weapons attack on civilians in the town of Douma".

Netanyahu told Putin that Israel would press a campaign to prevent Iran's military entrenchment in Syria, his office said.

Trump had earlier tweeted "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Israel is believed to have carried out numerous raids inside Syria since 2013.

"Do not test the determination of the State of Israel", Netanyahu warned Iran on Wednesday, speaking to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom Hashoah.

The US President Donald trump said Wednesday that USA relations with Russian Federation are now even worse than during the cold war, writes the Chronicle.info with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

He said: "On April 7, probably the last attempt to stage a chemical weapons attack in Eastern Ghouta was made".
