Israel not only sent its troops to Syria …
It is now seeking cooperation with Russia in their respective military missions there.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted for the first time Tuesday that Israeli troops have been operating in Syria.
The operation is allegedly intended to prevent Syria from becoming a front against Israel.
Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Paris.
He stressed that cooperation with Russia militarily is important to prevent clashes over Syria.
On Sunday, the Israeli defense minister said a Russian warplane had recently entered Israeli-controlled airspace from Syria.
But the fly-over was resolved without incident.
