JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel and Russia will coordinate their military actions over Syria to avoid accidentally trading fire, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

"My objective was to prevent misunderstandings between IDF (Israel Defense Force) units and Russian forces," Netanyahu told Israeli reporters, adding that he and Putin "agreed on a mechanism to prevent such misunderstandings".
