The IDF stated earlier in the day that Israel would share all information on the incident with Moscow, also expressing regret over the deaths of the Russian troops and put the blame on Damascus and Tehran.

“When the Syrian Army launched the missiles that hit the Russian plane, IAF [Israeli Air Force] jets were already within Israeli airspace … During the strike against the target in Latakia, the Russian plane that was then hit was not within the area of the operation,” the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) wrote on Twitter.

The military noted that the incident was caused by “extensive and inaccurate” fire of Syrian air defense systems.

“The Syrian anti-air batteries fired indiscriminately and from what we understand, did not bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air,” the IDF added.

The Russian Hmeimim airbase had lost contact with the crew of the Russian Il-20 military aircraft late on Monday during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia.

The Russian Defense Ministry said earlier on Tuesday that the Israeli military deliberately created a dangerous situation by using the Russian aircraft as a shield against Syrian air defense systems. As a result, the Il-20 jet was downed by a missile launched by Syria’s S-200 air defense system.

The incident claimed the lives of 15 Russian servicemen. The Russian military said it regards Israel’s provocative actions as hostile and reserves the right to a proper response.

The bottom-line is that Israel had no business attacking in the first place. They have been doing it over and over gain with impunity. Start from that premise.

Yes they have! Iran produces guided missiles and is trying to smuggle these in Lebanon in order to be able to proceed to the destruction of Israel by swarming effect, launching anything at once.
Even Putin said their actions towards Israel were absolutely intolerable and he ALSO (so did the Chinese), voted the disarmamnt of Hellbollah that the UNSC Res.1701 ordered.
By refusing to abide to Res.1701, any stockpiling of weapons destined to Hezb is nonetheless a legitimate target for IDF but for any UN member.

It does not matter what the IDF say and how many crocodile tears they shed.

Russian Ministry has clearly said: the aggressors will get a proper response.

Except that SyADF didn’t respected due procedures.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identification_friend_or_foe
IFF makes targetting your allies near impossible unless you deliberately shoot at anything, ignoring IFF is telling you you’re shooting at a ‘friend’.
The option is always left open since, if the cypher is compromised, which happened sometimes in the past, IFF can pass a foe for a friend but frankly, it’s not really if there were a dozen squadrons operating in a heavy jamming+ELINT environment…
4 fighter-jets and a spy-plane, taking 1-2 seconds to identify your target for sure makes few difference with a S-200 flying 2.5km per second.

Strangely, Torah is as clear as the Gospels : lies are all from the devil…
Meanwhile, YOUR book promotes Taqiyya (deception), murder of the kafir (infidels) and of the apostates, slavery, looting, jingoism, warmongering, mass-murders, etc…

My book? What the f**k are you talking about? I don’t follow ANY book. You are talking about YOUR book, my k**e friend. It’s all written in Torah. And now ask your Hasbara supervisor for some Shekels extra. Or you can just kill some Goyim child and drink his blood. Or just steal something as usual.

We will not sheed one tear for a bunch of dead Russian dogs being killed in Syria. Russia has muslim blood on its hands from the reckless ariel bombardment it has unleashed on Syria. We will rejoice everytime a Russian, and Saa dog is eradicated in Syria wether it’s done by mujahideen or anybody for that matter.

Your Jihadi views and acts made the Russians and others descend on You. This is a pattern You can observe since before the Normans fought back in the 10th century. The crusaders were an reaction provoked by Jihadism.

You do realise that in Syria the Syrians, Iranians, Hezbollah,the Russians + allies are fighting together against the imperialist West and their zionist and wahhabi allies + their takfiri mercenaries. P.S. The Crusades were provoked by the desire to plunder. There is no better proof for that then the sacking of Constantinople and Zadar.

The Crusades started well before that sacking of Costantinopulos and Zadar and were triggered as defence against Jiahd.

Any town that resisted knew that there will be looting.

BTW the crusaders started to use the same tactics as Muslim Jihadi. And look what the Turks did when they took Constantinople. They did not just sack it but slaughtered most inhabitants.

Western Imperialism was much less bloodthirsty than Muslim Imperialism. Learn some history. You on the Balkans should remember more the the West Europeans that warded off and defeated the Musels.

I have the honour that my ancestors were part of starting the movement since my family gained her nobility status at the battle of Poitiers (often called the battle of Tours in English), the participated the reconquista of Spain and the Crusades. This is the great difference between civilised people like the Russians or us, and even the Jews and you shithadists : We do not rejoice from death of others. Only mind-sick psychopaths like you shithadists do, Basir! When we fight, it’s by necessity, it’s when negotiating fails and actually, negotiating with bloodthirsty psychopaths like you is useless, in… Read more »

“civilised people like the Russians or us” Good joke. Unlike you the Russians are civilised and that is why they help Syria against your imperialist evil.
