Did Putin warn Netanyahu?

Debka & Stratfor ... or the art of disseminating  
"...  Netanyahu, while in Shanghai, was given a sharp dressing-down by President Vladimir Putin Monday, May 6, a warning that Russia would not tolerate further Israeli attacks on Damascus and would respond.Putin did not say how, but he did announce he had ordered the acceleration of highly advanced Russian weapons supplies to Syriadebkafile’s military sources disclose that the Russian leader was referring to S-300 anti-air systems and the nuclear-capable 9K720 Iskander (NATO named SS-26 Stone) surface missiles, which are precise enough to hit a target within a 5-7 meter radius at a distance of 280 kilometers.
In his phone call to Netanyahu, the Russian leader made no bones about his determination not to permit the US, Israel or any other regional force (e.g. Turkey and Qatar) overthrow President Bashar Assad. He advised the prime minister to make sure to keep this in mind..."

this sounds iffy. russian's S300s are no match for Israeli weapons. their S 300' and pantsyrs were pretty useless in 2007 and russia has made it clear for years they wont sell weaponry to the arabs that will rival Israel's. this is also true to how the USSR betrayed the arabs throughout the Cold War.
this is theater, little else.
