According a report by Alex Fishman, military analyst of Yedioth Ahronoth, high level Israeli political and security circles have expressed concern at the increasingly strong alliance between Russia, Iran and Turkey, particularly in light of the Russian position which supports the presence of Iranian forces in Syria.

Yedioth Ahronoth reported that foreign ministers of the three states met this week in Antalya, Turkey. Over the upcoming days, chiefs of staff will also meet. Later this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will hold a summit conference in Sochi, Russia, to discuss the future of Syria as well as hot issues in the Middle East.
