BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – An Israeli reconnaissance aircraft almost entered Syrian airspace on Sunday, prompting a potential confrontation between the two forces, the Russian aviation website Avia.Pro reported.

“A few hours ago, an Israeli military reconnaissance aircraft was in the Golan Heights’ (the territory occupied by Israel) airspace, approaching the Syrian borders at a distance of 7 kilometers, making it an extremely fat target even for outdated Syrian systems air defense,” the aviation website reported.

“We can say with confidence that the pro-Syrian forces would not have left the Israeli reconnaissance aircraft a single chance if the latter had crossed the airspace boundary, which is only about 30 seconds of flight ,” a military expert told Avia.Pro.

Israel often conducts close border flights in Lebanon and Syria; however, they rarely enter the latter without actually launching an attack against the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies.

Last week, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at a military outpost in the town of Tal Bariqa.

No casualties were reported by the Syrian Arab Army; however, the site itself was badly damaged by the Israeli Defense Forces.

Prior to this attack, the Israeli Defense Forces destroyed an observation post belonging to the Syrian Arab Army in the key town of Tal Al Harrah.

Syria should have shot down the Zionist intruders flying over OCCUPIED GOLAN. It is time for Syria to act and take the gloves off.

+++ “Syria should have shot down” >>> About 18 months ago, after using S-200 for 33 years, SyADF finally managed to shoot down an IDF F-16… In the next days, the number of SyADF SAM launchers was reduced from 900 to 450… IMHO, SyADF is not so hot at shooting at IDF again, especially as IDF isn’t targetting Syrian militaries and it’s definitively not Syria’s interest to let IRGC+Hezb “Lebanonising” the country. The danger for Syria is Turkey, it’s not Israel, it actually never has been Israel which has never started a single war. If you end into IDF’s harm’s… Read more »
