BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Israeli Air Force ‘accidentally’ fired a missile into Syrian territory last month, Israel’s Channel 12 News reported on Monday.

According to the Channel 12 report, the incident occurred on June 28th over the occupied Golan Heights.

The report said the Israeli warplane scrambled to a suspicious airborne target that was approaching the occupied Golan Heights.

During the interception, the Israeli Air Force pilot fired an air-to-air missile, which later landed in Syrian territory after it became apparent that it was a “false target”.

The Syrian Armed Forces did not mention the incident and it is not entirely clear if they knew it happened on June 28th.

The Israeli Air Force often flies close to the Syrian border; however, it is incredibly rare for the latter’s warplanes to engage the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF).

Who funds/backs Hezbollah or PFLP for decades to do terrorist attacks against Israel or Jews at worldwide level?
And Syria declared war on Israel on May 15th 1948.
Tsahal shooting at an enemy country’s militaries is not terrorism : it’s defence, like it or not.
BTW… Is your name “Christian” or “Muhammad”?

The point here is that Syria is not capable to shut down these planes. Maybe because they use to be slept, maybe because they are really inept, maybe because there is a hidden agreement, whatever to be the reason. Syria do not fire missiles to Israel planes.

Russia and Syrian are smart and they know the war tactics, they don’t want to fall into a trap. it’s not about Israel, It is about Nato. war with Israel means war with Nato (52 countries and the whole of Europe). so you need to keep your head cool and you need to know how to play your card.
remember turkey shot down Russian jet? Putin was smart and he didn’t take any action. but look now turkey is best Allie of Russia.

nasa : Israel is NOT a NATO member and never asked for help to defend from any aggressor, and they successfully kicked their bütts any time. Thus, USA now has a radar base and a SAM base in Israel and Haifa is now a port of call for US Navy. NATO will only intervene if a NATO country is attacked, not if the troops of a NATO country operating outside NATO are attacked. Thus… Are you sure you want to fight US militaries? And if you attack troops of an EU country, as others are likely to be in coalition… Read more »

As a dog never bites own tail, Dictator Assad and Irani Mulla khameni never attack Israel.

Now Irani mulla and his Criminal Dictator of Syria will chant “Death to US” “Death to israel” and kill ordinary Syrians as usual.

You’ll see Criminal Dictator Assad and Irani Mulla fight against zionist state in Homs idlib hama lataikia etc. ?

+++ “Dictator Assad and Irani Mulla khameni never attack Israel.”
>>> Because arming/funding/backing Hezbollah or Hamas terrorists is not attacking Israel? Funny fact, the Hague Convention (Intl. law) says that arming/funding/backing a “militia” to attack a country is a de facto declaration of war on this country…

Surely they failed to shot down that drone…like in 2016 when neither Patriot nor F-16 could shot down that drone!..then some sources told that it was a Russian drone with ECM pods testing Patriot AD…

Attack Deliberately or accidentally.

Criminal Dictator Assad and his Irani Mullah never retaliate against US or Israel as they are actually secret Israeli puppets (proxy).

Im guessing now irani Mulla khameni & Dictator Assad will chant “Death to US Death to israel” again before hitting killing ordinary Syrians with chemical cluster and barrel bombs.

Dude, this is 2019, the term barrel bombs is not even used by Zionist scumbags anymore in media as they failed to convince public in their efforst to demonise SAA. Learn your military history, SAA and IRan have retaliate several times against IAF. There is a reason why IAF will not cross into Syrian airspace anymore but restict to firing cruise missles from Lebanon

Israel is not into demonising SAA! What BS! Do you ever read the “Times of Israel”, the “Jerusalem Post” or “Haaretz”? You’d be VERY surprised by what they say and how they think. It’s VERY different from the Islamo-Nazi propaganda you’re fed with. +++ “SAA and IRan have retaliate several times against IAF.” >>> Not very succesfully : SyADF managed to shoot down only a single Israeli aircraft in the last 37 years. The former one was a drone in 1982… While in 48 hours, IDF demolished 28-29 full SAM battalions and shot down 83-105 SyAAF fighter-jets. +++ “There is… Read more »

Not really… Both Saddam and Khomeini have massively used chemical weapons during the Iran-Iraq war.
The 1988 Halabja chemical attack that killed 5,000 Kurds and injured 7,000-10,000 was proven as an Iranian one since analyses shown cyanide gasses were used. Iraq only used nerve agents like Sarin, Tabun or Soman…

Hey, Danny : the aircraft shot an AIR TO AIR MISSILE while there was NO TARGET! It was a “false positive” radar echo! They attacked nobody!

Danny : I’ve NEVER heard about the use of chemical cluster bombs in Syria.
The infamous 2013 East-Ghoutta massacre was done using Sarin-loaded artilery shells, and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) expert in ballistics calculated that the shells were shot from an area jointly held by al-Nusra and Jaysh al-Islam. At this time, al-Nusra was still the Syrian branch of ISIS. They later switched to al-Qaeda.

Danny : it’s the DUTY of ANY regular military to FIRST remove civilians from combat zones as much as possible. Your beloved anti-Assad militants don’t do this! They deliberately put civilians into harm’s way to use their deaths for propaganda purposes. By doing this, your beloved militants do a war-crime. The Despicable ayatoilet Khamenei is not in posture to use barrel bombs since its troops in Syria have no helicopters to drop barrel bombs… Even less “chemical cluster”. BTW, if you except Israel, ALL countries in the Mid-East are dictatorships or at best hybrid authoritarian regimes. I wouldn’t call Assad… Read more »
