Agencies (Qasioun) - The Russian Foreign Ministry has reportedly summoned Israel's Ambassador to Moscow Gary Koren for consultation following the attack on the T-4 airbase in Syria, the Arabic-language Sputnik news website reported on Tuesday.

 

The Israeli Embassy in Moscow declined comment, while the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem said "We have ongoing conversations with the Russians all the time, and the ambassador will indeed meet with Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov today."

 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitor, said at least 14 people were killed in the raid, some with foreign nationalities.
