Israel Launches Airstrikes In Syria After Fighter Jet Crashes
Israel said the drone was operating from Israeli occupied Golan Heights and targeting Syrian rebels
11 February, 2018, 05:18
Israel says the situation started with an Iranian drone crossing into its territory from Syria at around 4:30 a.m. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Russian Federation to intervene and calm tensions on the Israeli-Syrian border.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is also expected to visit the region in the coming week to discuss the crisis in Syria and other issues, and is scheduled to visit Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and other countries.
The drone remained in Israeli airspace for a minute and a half before it was downed by a combat helicopter.
Israel said several of the sites it targeted on Saturday "are part of Iran's military establishment in Syria".
Russia's Foreign Ministry has expressed its concerns over rising tensions between Israel and Syria. The plane crashed Kibbutz near Harduf in the Lower Galil south of Shfaram on Shabbos. The frontier fell quiet by mid-afternoon.
"The Zionist regime was formed in the Islamic world by the will of USA and United Kingdom as they have made a graveyard out of the Islamic world", Mr. Salami maintained.
The downing of the plane prompted a broad wave of Israeli strikes against a dozen Syrian and Iranian targets in Syrian territory.
Iran strongly rejected the claim as "ridiculous", noting that such allegations do not merit a comment.
As a result of the incident, one Israeli F-16 fighter jet came down in northern Israel with pilots able to eject. "Today's developments mean the old equations have categorically ended", the Lebanese Shi'ite group said. The Air Force has outstanding striking capabilities in quality and quantity of Iranian and Assad's targets.
"This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory".
Israel has mostly stayed out of the fighting in Syria, wary of being drawn into fighting between forces that are all opposed to it.
The F-16 went down over Israel on Saturday. But he added: "I do not believe matters will develop to a regional war". "Iran stands by Syria against any foolish move by Israel", the country's foreign ministry said.
So the latest incident needs to be seen in the context of what is now a prolonged low-level military confrontation between Israel and Iran (and its proxies). Gen, Tomer Bar said Saturday.
"The US continues to push back on the totality of Iran's malign activities in the region and calls for an end to Iranian behavior that threatens peace and stability".
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, "We consider it necessary to unconditionally respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and other countries of the region". "Let no one make a mistake about this".
In Gaza, the armed wing of the Islamic group Hamas declared full alert among its fighters because of the escalation of violence in northern Israel.
Israel remains technically at war with Syria and occupies a swathe of the strategic Golan Heights that it seized in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed in a move never recognised by the global community. An F-16 was shot down by Syria's air defenses during the incursion.
