The upper chamber of the Russian parliament has unanimously given a formal consent to President Putin to use the nation’s military in Syria to fight terrorism at a request from the Syrian President Bashar Assad.
 
Consent was necessary for use of the country's military for foreign combat missions under the Russian constitution.
 
The request for use of force was sent by the president after considering the large number of citizens of Russia and neighboring countries, who went to join terrorist groups fighting in Syria, head of the presidential administration Sergey Ivanov told media. There are thousands of them, and Russia’s national security would be under threat, should they return home, he added.
 
“This is not about reaching for some foreign policy goals, satisfying ambitions, which our Western partners regularly accuse us of. It’s only about the national interest of the Russian Federation,” the official said.

Israeli Commando’s Fight Alongside ISIS in Syria
 
TEHRAN (FNA)- Informed sources said that after the Israeli army shelled the government-held areas in Golan Heights, militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Nusra Front launched a new offensive on the Syrian soldiers’ positions to capture the remaining villages inside the Golan Heights.
 
The sources said that the FSA and Nusra militants stormed the National Defense Forces’ (NDF) positions at Tal Taranjah, Mazra’a Al-Amil, Tal Hamriyah, and Tal Al-Ahmar, resulting in a series of intense firefights that took most of the Monday morning and afternoon before they dissipated due to the coming nightfall.
 
The militant groups received a boost from their Israeli allies on Sunday after the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) shelled the heights with several rockets.
