Damascus, Syria (10:15 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Defense Ministry announced that an Israeli warplane was shot down over the southwestern countryside of the Quneitra Governorate.

The supposed downing of the aircraft occurred hours ago after the Israeli airforce struck Syrian Army positions.

According to the statement released by the Defense Ministry, the Syrian Armed Forces shot down the aircraft after it launched an attack on their positions near the town of Sa’sa.

The statement also added that an Israeli drone was downed as well; however, this information cannot be confirmed as of yet.

If true, this will be the first time the Syrian Armed Forces have downed an Israeli warplane during this conflict.

Please note: the authenticity of this statement could not be verified at the moment.

Israel, like any country, holds the Syrian government responsible for stray fire. When mortar/artillery rounds land inside Israel from Syria, they like any country has a right to self defense.

It may be unpleasant for all their haters but I agree with you. In such case, Syrian govt is held responsible as the shelling comes from their territory and they’re not supposed to let such thing happen. Thus, both being on dispute about Golan Heights for 49 years, I doubt they settling things for such case but it’d be of israeli great interests to have contact with SAA thus targetting the shithadists positions when such provocations happen.

Oh you mean stray fire that lands in syrian territory like say the Golan that Israhell is illegally occupying?…or perhaps you’re talking about palestinian land that these european non semites jews are illegally occupying too? I wasn’t aware that the European non semite khazars owned any land in the ME..

You may notice that if Syria didn’t attacked Israel in 1967, they’d have kept Golan… Egypt signed a peace treaty then Sinaï was given back. Syria always refused, no Golan back… And I doubt they’ll ever give Golan back : too much security issues for them : Golan was used for 18 years to shell into Israel before they defeated anybody around during the 6 day war… Some interesting historical facts : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7ByJb7QQ9U In fact, without the arabs around acting so in a really stupid pattern for decades, mostly due to the CLEAR antisemitism of coran, issues could have been… Read more »

Brian McConville you mean golan Hights is Syrian. So bombs fell inside Syria and of that Israels bombing targets in side of Syria. ????????????. Several times they Syria Arab army haven’t done something to pretend the Israeli warplanes in side Syria. Yesterday and today are the first time. And I believe a drone was shoot down also last year.

Working with our regional partners, I would recommend that we immediately established a no fly zone Syria wide, and destroy any surface to air weapon that is not de-activated, locked down and stored. We will allow escorted air corridors for authorized non combat air transport only. We will remove offensive air to ground combat from the equation, and we will remove active surface to air capabilities from the equation. We will defend pro democracy controlled areas, and we will defend neutral humanitarian areas. This is going to be a b****y slog for any not willing to commit to a cooperative,… Read more »

What civil war ? Syria encounters an jihadist/mercenary invasion for many years now. Why u think millions of syrians look for refugee in government areas and not with the terrorists? They trie for years to establish a no fly zone in favour of the jihadist and break international laws. If this current government does not represent Syrians, then why most syrians keep supporting them? Aipac forcing the worldwide community to boycot Syria, in favour of their own plans were zionist creedly benefit. They manage to destroy many countries, but will fail destroyin the Syrian way of live. Already the Syrian… Read more »
