MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Friday denied media reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had discussed alleged incidents involving Russian forces in Syria and Israeli military aircraft.

"In this case, Israeli press reports are far from reality," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with journalists.
