The statement by Netanyahu comes just days after Israel purportedly carried out an airstrike against a Syrian military base where Iran is also operating.

In its statement on the conversation, Netanyahu's office said: "The prime minister reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria".

Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) shakes hands with Ambassador of Montenegro to Russia Ramiz Basic (L) as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (back) looks on during a ceremony of presenting ambassadors' credentials at the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia, on April 11, 2018.

The two men "discussed the Syrian issue, including in light of the recent missile strikes by the Israeli Air Force on the T-4 airfield in the Homs province". The brutal tactics pursued mainly by the regime, which have included the use of chemical weapons, sieges, mass executions and torture against civilians have led to war crimes investigations.

According to the Kremlin, Putin called for abstention from any actions which could "destabilize the situation in Syria and threaten [the country's security]".

Iran has been Russia's de facto ally in Syria.

In his speech, Netanyahu criticised the nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers and warned Iranian leaders not to "test Israel's resolve".

Israel is on high alert for any Iranian retaliation after Tehran's direct threat Tuesday, as well as any possible USA strike against Syria's Assad regime in retaliation to the chemical attack at Douma.

Israeli army officials said Israel would overthrow the Assad government if Iran attacked Israel through Syria. Some 2,000 USA troops have been assisting rebel factions aligned with the West. Netanyahu fears that a US retreat from the conflict will allow Iran to expand its influence.
