As Netanyahu was meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tweeted, "To our friends in Israel - be very careful making agreements with Russia re Syria that affect US interests".
Israel most recently has been on high alert as Assad's forces and allied Iranian and Hizballah militias have advanced toward the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in a campaign to regain territory in the southwest that has been held for years by armed Syrian rebels.
Israel is particularly anxious about the presence of Damascus ally Iran next door in Syria. Israel worries that he could deploy troops or allow his Iranian and Hezbollah allies to set up emplacements near Israeli lines. Israel is especially concerned about Iran's military presence in Syria.

"I stressed Israel's clear position: we are against any presence of Iran in Israel", he said.

The Kremlin stated that the two leaders will meet to "cover current issues related to bilateral cooperation and also the global agenda, including a Palestinian-Israeli settlement and the situation in Syria".
