BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – Israel did not hide behind the downed Russian IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced via Twitter on Sunday.

“The deconfliction mechanism operated in the relevant timeframe (as it has been operating over the last two and a half years); the IAF did not hide behind any aircraft and that the Israeli aircraft were in Israeli airspace at the time of the downing of the Russian plane,” the IDF Spokesperson tweeted.

“The result of the downing of the Russian plane by Syrian fire is severe and tragic and we convey our condolences to the bereaved families and the Russian People. The coordination between the IDF and the Russian military has proven its value numerous times over the last years,” they continued.

The IDF Spokesperson said that this incident showed the problems with giving advanced weapons to “irresponsible entities.”

“In addition, as we saw during this incident, the use of advanced weapons by irresponsible entities significantly endangers the area and can severely harm forces operating in the region,” they added.

In response to this move by the Israeli Air Force, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that they would be supplying Syria with the S-300 missile defense system.

“the use of advanced weapons by irresponsible entities”..yes, Israel, this would be you. “as it has been operating over the last two and a half years”…and as the Russians said, you actually adhered to this 25 times out of over 200 attacks, not a very good record of compliance, huh? “we convey our condolences to the bereaved families and the Russian People”…yeah, right. If you really meant it, this would not have happened in the first place. Russians are mere dogs to be kicked aside when the time comes, as is everybody, in your eyes. “coordination between the IDF and… Read more »

Just look at the language they have used and understand that these are worthless lies.
“The deconfliction mechanism operated in the relevant timeframe.”
This is precisely the type of meaningless drivel the Israeli’s try to pump out into the world in the absence of facts. Russia said there was one minutes warning and they lied about the area they were attacking, they can’t offer contrary facts, so instead they puff themselves up and pour out this meaningless gibberish. Do not believe a word of it.

“Israel did not hide behind Russian IL-20 aircraft: IDF Spox.” Yeah, right, the russian who have developed the advance S300, S400 and S500 do not know how to read their own factual radar data. Give me a break.
