The Kremlin considers it premature to comment on information about Israel's attack on Iran in the absence of official statements, Russia in general favors restraint in the actions of the parties, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, APA reports citing TASS.

"So far, actually, there have been no official statements from Israel. So we are studying this information, for now we consider it premature to make any comments without understanding the details. But in any case, whatever the case, we continue to advocate restraint of the parties, refusal of any actions that could provoke further escalation of tensions in such a difficult region," the spokesman said.
