Moscow: The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned Israel`s Ambassador to Moscow to protest an Israeli military strike near the Syrian city of Palmyra, news agency Interfax quoted a ministry official as saying on Monday.

Ambassador Gary Koren was called for discussions at the ministry last Friday, the official said.

Last week Syria`s army high command said Israeli jets had breached Syrian air space and attacked a military target near Palmyra, in what it described as an act of aggression that aided Islamic State.
