"We will not allow Israel to be attacked from Syrian territory, and we will not tolerate the transfer of advanced weaponry of those entering Syria - Hezbollah - to the extent that we detect it".

At the time of his death on 13 May 2016, Hezbollah said Badreddine had been killed by an explosion at one of its bases near Damascus airport.

Israel will continue air strikes in Syria if it deems it necessary, despite reports indicating otherwise, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday at a press briefing, Haaretz reported.

Badreddine was a student of Imad Mughniyeh, Hezbollah's previous military chief, who was considered one of the world's most-wanted terrorists by Israel and the United States.

Eisenkot said Israel "believes that he was killed by his own officers".

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) reportedly carried out a fresh set of airstrikes on Syria in the Mount Qasioun region near Damascus overnight on Tuesday, according to a Syrian rebel news outlet.

When commenting on Israel's recent air raids against targets in Syria, he said that during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Moscow, the parties had confirmed agreements "concerning military cooperation between Russian Federation and Israel in Syria".

Israel considers Hezbollah among its top threats and fought a devastating 2006 war against it.

Mughniyeh, who was Badreddine's brother-in-law, was killed in a 2008 auto bombing in Damascus that Hezbollah blamed on Israel.

Ambassador Gary Koren was called in by Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday after news about the strike emerged, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told the media on Monday, confirming earlier media reports.

In a statement, the military said the "Skylark" went down on Sunday and that the incident was being investigated.

Speaking to Russian journalists, the Syrian president said that Russia's entire policy was based on global law, the UN Charter and UN Security Council resolutions.

Despite the invitation to the Israeli ambassador in Moscow for a discussion following the weapons convoy attack and the anti-aircraft missile interception in Syria, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns Russian President Putin during their meeting that Israel will continue with its policy.
