The Israeli ambassador to Russia was summoned to speak with Moscow government officials for a second time in less than a week, Hebrew media reported Monday.

The topic of the discussion remains unknown.

On Friday, Ambassador Gary Koren was asked to speak to Russian officials in regards to Israel’s air strike in Syria at a target near the city of Palmyra.

According to Channel 2 the strike hit close to Russian troops. The Foreign Ministry confirmed Koren’s meeting with the Russians, just one day after the ambassador presented his credentials, but did not expand on its content.
