BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Israeli Air Force commander Major General Amikam Norkin traveled to Moscow on Thursday in order to meet with his Russian counterparts regarding the downing of the IL-20 off the coast of Syria.

In a statement released after Norkin’s meetings concluded, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said that they presented their report on the situation that led up to the downing of the Russian aircraft.

“The Israeli officers presented the situation report regarding the downing of the Russian plane by Syrian anti-aircraft fire on Monday night, as well as the pre-mission information and the findings of the IDF’s inquiry of the event,” the IDF Spokesperson said, adding that “the meetings were conducted following the agreement between the Israeli Prime Minister, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu and the Russian President, Mr. Vladimir Putin.”

“The meetings were held in good spirits and the representatives shared a professional, open and transparent discussion on various issues. Both sides emphasized the importance of the states’ interests and the continued implementation of the deconfliction system,” the statement says.

“In addition, the IDF presented the ongoing Iranian attempts to establish its military presence in Syria and to transfer strategic weapons to the Hezbollah terror organization,” the IDF noted. “The Israeli delegation continues its meetings and will return to Israel tomorrow morning, as planned.”

Blah, blah, blah. The illegal raffidah shitlamic repulseblik and its Helbollocks puppets made their goal public for decades : the destruction of the state of Israel and the murder of all its population, moreover, they’re working at it and did many many attacks in the past, making all action from the “zionist entity” absolutely LEGITIMATE according to the universally signed Hague Convention. In fact, anybody reading the Hague convention can only conclude Israel shows immense restraints while international law allows them to totally annihilate nonetheless Hellbollocks but also those who are their masters and arm/fund them, even to invade Syria,… Read more »

The Zio/Nazi tyranny is the sole aggressor and trouble maker in the Middle East. It’s satanic Thalmud wanting to place every human being who is not a Khazar luciferian Zionist under their slavery and domination is the reason why people resist. All wars in the Middle East have been initiated with unprovoked aggressions from the foreign Zio/Nazi tyranny. The free Middle Eastern countries like Syria, Lebanon and Iran have a right to defend themselves from these demonic monsters. The biggest shame is on Putin and Russia who is being exposed as a Zio/Nazi apologist. I can now conclude with cetruianty… Read more »

You will now see their online agents do the same as in the article. Spew a line of BS a mile long…and still not address the actions Israel took. Blah, blah, blah is their mantra…SOS. They spew about international agreements, international law ad infinitum…but the reality is that Israel follows NO LAW. They never have and never will. They violate every law that does not suit them, then will have the nerve to quote international law…as if they have ever ascribed to the ICC. Then they will basically try to say they have been practicing restraint. This is the most… Read more »

Rusia debe romper relaciones con Israel, demostrar firmeza, si de verdad quiere defender al pueblo Sirio.
Putín no le importa la vida de sus soldados.

These Israelis actions have nothing related with defending the Syrian people which was NEVER targetted. In fact, by voting UNSC Res.1701, Russia also ordered the disarmament of Hezbollah. They may not act to enforce it due to diplomatic and economical reasons, but they have no reason to oppose ANY UN nation with the will to enforce UNSC vote. Putin even said publicly that the Iranian attitude towards Israel was absolutely intolerable and [in the Syrian case] totally counter-productive. Since SAA/SyADF are not targetted as the targets are Iranian illegal arms transfers to Hellbollah Iran even brags about and moreover, SAA… Read more »

This is the typical Zionist lying Jewish word game manure that they are so famous for. The stated position of the criminal entity known as Israel is well known…they attack anyone, at any time, anywhere for whatever reason. Will they state the true reason for the chaos there? NO. Everyone knows that they have their excuses why they murder and attack defenseless people…that is not the subject, no? The subject is that they violated a protocol that they themselves required of Russia. They gave a warning(1 minute), which they were required to do, but as Shoigu said, that ‘violated the… Read more »
