Israel launches attacks in Syria following jet's crash

No ‘Russian option’ for Israel in Syria

Israel soon sent fighter jets into Syria to attack the T4 military base near the Syrian city of Palmyra, from which the drone supposedly was launched.

Reuters reports that Israel has kicked off implementation of the threat.

Meanwhile, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin commended security forces for their "firm and resolute defense measures in the face of further proof of the danger of Iranian consolidation in the region".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel spent much of Saturday in consultations with his defense minister, the Israeli chief of staff, and other military officials.

10 de febrero de 2018, 12:43Damascus, Feb 10 (Prensa Latina) In the face Israel " s threating attacks, Iranian Ambassador to Damascus, Javad Turk-Abadi, reportedly reiterated Saturday Tehran " s ongoing support to the Syrian people to preserve their homeland " s territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The Israeli military in the response of the event struck targets in Syria. "Iran made such an attempt today".

One of the various types of fast attack craft used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Netanyahu said he had spoken by telephone with Russian President Vladimir Putin and that they agreed Israel-Russia military coordination in regard to Syria would continue.




During their talk, Putin told Netanyahu to avoid "any steps which might trigger a new spiral of dangerous-for-all confrontation in the region", according to the state-owned TASS news agency. Netanyahu said he and Tillerson discussed the flare-up on Saturday. That was when Syria-Russia stepped in to shoot down the plane. An F-16 was shot down by Syria's air defenses during the incursion.

Syria's responding anti-aircraft fire led to the apparent downing of an Israeli F-16, in which two pilots were injured, one seriously and another lightly. They are both in the Rambam Hospital.

"I have been warning for some time about the dangers of Iran's military entrenchment in Syria". It comes as Israel claims to have downed an Iranian drone over its territory. Some Israeli observers have said it is hard to imagine that the Russians there would not have known about the Iranian drone or the subsequent antiaircraft fire.

Israeli media said the jet crashed in northern Israel.

It retaliated by sending at least eight jets to attack Syrian and Iranian military bases, which according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights were located near Homs province.

Iran wants to dictate new red lines from Syria's perspective, by dictating a message that Israel no longer has a free pass to operate unhindered in Syria.

The pro-Assad military alliance, which includes Iran and Hezbollah, warned Israel on Saturday that any new act of "terrorism" would be met with a "severe and serious response". Gradually this Israeli-rebel nexus has produced what the Israelis call a "safe zone" abutting their occupied territory on the Golan, as Nour Samaha reported for the Intercept last month.
