Israel Shoots Down Syrian Fighter Jet Entering Israeli Airspace

No ‘confusion’ IDF knew intercepted Sukhoi jet was Syrian not Russian spokesman confirms Smoke trails from two Patriot missiles in northern Israel

Israel's military said there had been an increase in internal fighting in Syria since the morning hours, including intensified activity by the Syrian Air Force.

The Israeli military said it fired two Patriot missiles at the Syrian Sukhoi fighter jet that crossed around a mile into Israel.

The plane was intercepted with two Patriot missiles fired from the Tzfat area in the Upper Galilee.

Syria and Israel fought two wars over their shared border, in 1967 and 1973, leading to Israel's seizure of the Golan Heights in what was Syria's Quneitra province. The U.N. deployed a peacekeeping force there two years later.

"Our air defense systems identified a Syrian Air Force jet that took off from the T-4 Syrian Air Force Base and penetrated Israeli airspace".

Israel says the Su-22 entered their airspace, and that it amounted to a violation of the 1974 Golan ceasefire. "That's what any other country would do", Danon said. Created to intercept medium and long-range missiles, David's Sling is a larger, more powerful version of Iron Dome.

"We won't accept Iranian military entrenchment in Syria, not near the border, not beyond the 100-kilometer stretch, which by the way the Russians talk about and agree to", a senior Israeli official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Syria, he was quoted by the SANA news agency as saying, would not negotiate or relinquish its rights to the Golan Heights until "our occupied territory be fully restored".

'It was shot down and it crashed, ' Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus told reporters.

It is unclear how the Syrian regime will react, although the Daily Telegraph says it "usually responds to Israeli strikes against its forces with angry condemnation but no significant action".

On July 16, Syrian army took control of a strategic hill overlooking the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Israeli forces said they are on high alert and would continue to protect Israeli territory.

Israel had previously rejected a Russian proposal that Iranian forces be kept 80 km from the frontier, according to Israeli officials.

The incident comes during a Russia-backed Syrian offensive to retake parts of southern Syria the Bashar al-Assad government lost to rebels during the civil war.
