BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, discussed the downing of the IL-20 aircraft with Italy’s Panorama magazine on Thursday.
Zakharova slammed Israel’s actions during the short episode, calling their air force both ‘unprofessional’ and ‘cowardly’.
“The tragedy occurred on September 17 following erroneous, unprofessional and cowardly actions of one of our partners, despite Russia’s efforts to develop the relationship with Israel, including when it comes to the issues that are important for them,” Zakharova stated.
Israel maintains that they were not responsible for the downing of the IL-20 aircraft, despite the Russian Ministry of Defense’s accusations.
The Israel regime’s official position is that the Syrian military’s actions were the cause of the aircraft’s demise.
