MOSCOW, Russia – Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday that Russian authorities and their Israeli counterparts discussed Israel’s strikes on the Syrian T-4 military airbase through respective channels.

“Certainly, this is a source of our concern. Contacts with the Israeli side are held via respective channels,” Peskov said,
