JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that Israel would continue to carry out military operations in Syria, issuing the pledge after Russia announced it would supply an advanced anti-aircraft system to its Syrian ally.

"We will continue to act to prevent Iranian military entrenchment in Syria and we will continue the military coordination between the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) and the Russian army," Netanyahu told reporters before boarding a flight to New York, where he will address the U.N. General Assembly.
