Russia turns against Israel as well, attacking sovereignty of Golan Heights and Jerusalem

As if it weren't bad enough Russia invaded Ukraine, and already caused more than enough murders there, now they're turning against Israel as well, using the Golan Heights and Jerusalem as their excuse for assault:
Moscow took issue with Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and Jerusalem just prior to its attack on Ukraine.

“Russia doesn’t recognize Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights that are part of #Syria,” its deputy ambassador, Dmitry Polyanskiy, told the UN Security Council, which held a debate on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Wednesday.

The monthly Security Council meeting took place as the General Assembly debated the Russian-Ukrainian crisis.

Polyanskiy spoke just hours after Israel broke its neutrality on the conflict, as it gave a nod in support of Ukraine.
No doubt, this will become a very bad situation in this region soon enough, as Russia could indeed make it hard for Israel to attack Iran. If anything, this certainly exposes Russia's continuing antisemitism in politics.
