He went on to say "Syria, Iran and Russian Federation would appear to have little interest now in getting into a full-blown conflict with Israel". Of late, an Israeli F16 was shot down by Syria after destroying a "mobile trailer" that is alleged to have launched an Iranian drone into Israel's airspace.
In the east, the USA military launched rare airstrikes on pro-government fighters following a coordinated assault on US -backed forces accompanied by USA advisers.
And following the weekend's aerial clashes along the Syrian front, Israel appealed to Russian Federation to intervene and prevent further escalation. Turkey is using Sunni rebels to fight the same Kurds.
Russian soldiers dying in battle so far from home can erode support even for the most powerful dictator. America's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Turkey is battling US -allied Kurds, who are receiving tacit support from the Syrian government.
Meanwhile, Turkey is continuing to assault a Kurdish enclave on its border and threatening to attack another one where USA troops are present; and Syrian government and Russian forces are pounding rebel positions east of Damascus and in the northern province of Idlib, including with chemical weapons. The state news agency SANA said air defenses responded to a "new Israeli aggression".
Netanyahu contacted Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to discuss the matter.
The Israeli military says an Iranian drone infiltrated the country and it was shot down.
"God willing, they will see more surprises whenever they try to attack Syria", he added.
The recent violence has left hundreds dead and wounded amid relentless airstrikes that have transformed the besieged area into a death trap.

The att ack on a CRPF camp in South Kashmir's Pulwama on December 31 was also carried out by JeM, the official said. By evening, the militants had been contained in one part of the camp's residential quarters, army spokesman Col.
In Eastern Ghouta, almost 400,000 residents are trapped by the violence and a tightening government siege. "Obviously, we spoke about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict".
Israel views Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime as the weak link in the Iranian-Shi'a axis, and Assad should keep that in mind when weighing whether or not to let Iran set up military bases in his country or transfer precision missiles to Hezbollah, National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Monday.
Because it was the first time in over three decades that an Israeli jet was brought down by enemy fire, the immediate response by some analysts was to declare that the conflict in the region had entered a "new strategic phase".
"Iran is in Syria legitimately and based on the invitation of the Syrian government".
David Halbfinger, Jerusalem bureau chief for the New York Times, writes that the February 10 clashes were not the end of possible hostilities; they were the beginning. And because no one wants to own responsibility for fixing Syria - a gargantuan project - they all want to just rent their influence there. ISIS is an alternative acronym for the Islamic State group.

"The United States is deeply concerned about today's escalation of violence over Israel's border and strongly supports Israel's sovereign right to defend itself", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement, according to Reuters.
But as IS shrinks, the estimated 2,000 US troops stationed in Syria find themselves caught in a highly unpredictable and shifting battlefield, as demonstrated by an unexpected attack by pro-Assad fighters on USA -backed forces who were accompanied by USA advisers in Deir el-Zour. One U.S. Intelligence official said "This was IDF's way of saying to Iran, we know more than you think we do and we are not afraid to do something with that knowledge if you force our hand". Russia's Putin took advantage of the Obama administrations reluctance to confront the Russian buildup in Syria. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said the USA intervention has no end date and the size of the US force will increase. The area had been a stronghold of IS militants until late a year ago.
