Israel shoots down Syrian fighter jet it says entered Israeli airspace

It was the latest in a series of confrontations that has heightened fears of a unsafe escalation in the region.

Air raid sirens sounded in northern Israel for a second straight day, and Israeli forces on the Golan Heights remain on high alert as the war inside Syria rages.

Israeli missiles shot down Tuesday a Syrian fighter jet that entered its aerial space, Israel's military said.

Israel has shot down a Syrian military jet that entered its airspace, further raising tensions between the countries.

He didn't know whether there were casualties.

A Syrian military source cited by state-run news agency SANA called the Israeli action an "aggression", and said that by shooting down a Syrian plane that was bombing a "terrorist group", Israel helped the "terrorists". Netanyahu wants Russian Federation to keep both Syria and Iran, two clear enemies of Israel, far away from the Golan border.

"Israel also continues its colonial settlement campaigns in the occupied Syrian Golan and the policies of repression against Golan citizens, looting their resources and arresting the Syrian people in a blatant violation of Geneva treaties", Munzer said. "I have reiterated and made clear that we will not accept any such violation", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. Israel's military will "continue to operate against" any breach of the 1974 United Nations armistice deal that established buffer zones on the Golan, the statement said.

Two surface-to-air missiles were fired at the Sukhoi fighter jet, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tweeted.

The military said the system was triggered after it identified projectiles launched in the direction of Israel.

Fighting is now concentrated in the Yarmouk basin, the last pocket of territory held by Islamic State in southwestern Syria.

Israel has been stressing for weeks that it would enforce the ceasefire between it and Syria amid a Russian-backed government offensive in the country's south.

The station broadcast images from a correspondent who said he was standing about 40 yards from the fence.

Today's trails of smoke above the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are another sign of how Syria's war has agitated the dynamics between old foes in the region.

A Canadian Foreign Ministry statement on Saturday said the White Helmets "have witnessed vicious atrocities committed by the Assad regime and its backers". About a third of the Golan Heights is still nominally controlled by Syria. Danon says Israeli forces saw the plane "crossing the border. we tried to contact a few times, and there was no response".

The Israeli military has carried out more than 100 airstrikes in Syria in an effort to prevent Iranian entrenchment or the transfer of arms to its proxy, Hezbollah.

While the jet, however, was made in Russian Federation, it was being used by the Syrian air force at the time.
