Syria shoots down Israeli jetBy Shelly Foster Mar 20, 2017
Moreover, the Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants inside Syria.
As Reuters further adds, after Israeli Air Force planes struck several targets in Syria on Thursday night, Damascus retaliated by activating its air defense systems and firing a number of missiles at Israeli jets, according to Haaretz.
Russian Federation summoned its ambassador to Israel for clarifications following Israeli airstrikes in Syria.
Tel Aviv Syria tried to shoot down a squadron of Israeli warplanes that had carried out an airstrike near the desert city of Palmyra, in the most serious confrontation between the two countries for several years.
Regarding the strikes, Israeli authorities previously said they were targeting positions of Lebanon's Hezbollah group inside Syria.
A military spokesperson said in a statement that one anti-aircraft missile was intercepted by its Arrow anti-missile system.
What is known of this unusual story is this: Israel's Super Green Pine radar - part of the joint U.S. -Israel Arrow weapon system - detected a threat and launched an Arrow 2 interceptor against its first operational target. At least one of the missiles crossed the Israeli border, setting off air-raid sirens in Galilee before it was shot down by a missile-defence system. The group is sworn to Israel's destruction, and fired thousands of rockets into Israel during a monthlong war in 2006.
