"The situation in Syria was discussed in the context of joint efforts to ensure security in the Syrian-Israeli border area. Both sides expressed readiness to boost coordination on Syria, including on countering international terrorism," the statement said.
Earlier, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman after meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Israel appreciates Moscow's understanding of its security interests, including those in Syria.
In May, the Syrian forces reportedly airdropped leaflets demanding local militants in the southern Daraa province to surrender.
Daraa province is part of the ceasefire zone, which had been agreed upon by Jordan, Russia, and the United States in 2017. Russia has constantly said that only the Syrian government forces should be deployed near the country's southern borders since the agreement to create a ceasefire zone in southwestern Syria required the withdrawal of all non-Syrian forces from the area.
