Israel's Fourth Generation Fighter Jet Shot Down by Russian S-200 Air Shield
TEHRAN (FNA)- One of the most advanced fighter jets worldwide used by the Israeli Air Force to attack Syria was shot down by an old Soviet-made S-200 ground-to-air missile, a Russian media outlet reported on Sunday.

The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted the website of Aviation Analysis Wing as reporting that the Syrian air defense units targeted the modern Israeli F16 fighter jet by a S-200 missile defense system designed in soviet era in the 1960s.

The Israeli Air Force's F16 is a forth generation fighter jet equipped with modern electronic system.

Field sources in Damascus province said on Saturday that the Syrian Army's air defense units confronted the third wave of Israeli air raids in the Western part of Damascus province.

The sources said that air defense units repelled the third round of Israeli airstrikes on army positions in al-Dimas region, tracking and destroying the Israeli air-to-surface missile before hitting the target on the ground.

In the meantime, the AMN reported that the Israeli Air Force fired several missiles at a number of military points near the occupied Golan in Western Ghouta, adding that the Syrian forces tracked two of the fired missiles.

Meantime, the Israelis claim that they halted the raids. "Our operation has been terminated," spokesman for the Israeli army announced a few minutes ago.

Also, Israeli media reported that Tel Aviv called on Washington and Moscow to meddle and take control over the situation.

The Syria's state-run SANA said that a situation of fear and anxiety covered the Northern part of occupied Palestine.

SANA reported on Saturday that the Syrian air defense units confronted the second raid of Israeli fighter jets in Damascus province airspace.

The news agency further quoted a military source as saying that the air defense units repelled the Israeli jet's fresh attack on army positions in the Southern part of the country.

Israel’s Channel 2 also reported that the Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv had temporarily halted air traffic.

The Syrian military had hit at least one Israeli F-16 aircraft that attacked positions inside Syrian territory, sending it down in flames and smoke.

Over the past years, Israel has frequently attacked targets in Syria, often claiming that it hit positions or convoys belonging to Iran. This is while Iran has no military presence in Syrian territory, only offering advisory military assistance to the Syrian government fighting an all-out foreign-sponsored militancy.

Damascus stressed on Thursday that the repeated Israeli attacks on Syria are a continuation of Israel’s aggressive approach represented by supporting terrorist groups to prolong the crisis in Syria and to raise the morale of the terrorists.

In a letter sent to the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN Security Council, Syria's Foreign Ministry stressed that the continuation of Israel’s attacks only serves to support terrorist groups and to prolong the crisis in Syria.

"The government of the Syrian Arab Republic reiterates its warning to Israel on the serious repercussions of its attacks on Syria, its continued support for armed terrorist organizations, and its continued occupation of the Arab territories, including the occupied Syrian Golan, and it holds Israel fully responsible for that,” it said.

It further went on to condemn the Tel Aviv regime's latest attack in which Israeli aircraft launched missiles from the Lebanese airspace on an area in Damascus countryside.

The letter noted that the attack coincides with "the launching of more than 1,000 rockets and mortar rounds during the past few days on neighborhoods, suburbs, diplomatic missions, service facilities, and churches in Damascus and other cities, where dozens of civilians were killed and hundreds others were wounded, most of them women and children."

The letter concluded by calling on the UN and the Security Council to condemn such actions and to take firm and immediate measures to halt those attacks.

Israeli F-16 jet shot down by Syria fire, says military
An Israeli F-16 fighter jet has been shot down by Syrian military while targeting what it called Iranian sites responsible for launching a drone into occupied Golan Heights.

The Israeli military said on Saturday "a combat helicopter successfully intercepted an Iranian UAV that was launched from Syria and infiltrated Israel".

"IDF [Israel Defence Forces] has targeted the Iranian control systems in Syria that sent the #UAV into Israeli airspace. Massive Syrian Anti-Air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe," Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus, Israeli military spokesman, said on Twitter.

Israeli media said the jet crashed in northern Israel.

"This is a dramatic development," Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr, reporting from Lebanon's capital, Beirut, said.

"Israel has carried out dozens of attacks over the past one year but this is for the first time a Syrian military has shot down an Israeli plane," she said.

"It is also for the first time that Israel has said its planes carried out attacks inside Syria. In the past, the Israelis carried out attacks inside Syria but they would not mention anything about the target or even acknowledge attacks."
Israeli 'aggression'

Syria state television later cited a Syrian military official as saying that Israeli "aggression" targeted the Syrian army base in the central region of the country.

Sources in Damascus said there were casualties among Syrian forces.

In response, Syria shot down more than one Israeli fighter jets, according the official.

Sirens sounded in northern Israel as a result of massive Syrian fire.

Pro-government military alliance in Syria said in a statement later on Saturday that Israel would see a severe and serious response to its "terrorism" from now on.

The statement also said the drones - one of which Israel shot down - were being used against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS).

Israeli military said it was "monitoring events" and was "fully prepared for further action".

Israel's chief military spokesman, Brigadier General Ronen Manelis, said Israel held Iran directly responsible for the incident.

"This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory. Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn't know how it will end," he said in a statement.

"Whoever is responsible for this incident is the one who will pay the price."

Later on Saturday, Reuters news agency quoted an unnamed Israeli military spokesman as saying that Israel did not seek an escalation in the region.

"We are willing, prepared and capable to exact a heavy price from anyone that attacks us, however we are not looking to escalate the situation. This was a defensive effort triggered by an Iranian act of aggression and we are defending our airspace our sovereignty and civilians," the source said.

Al Jazeera's Imran Khan, reporting from West Jarusalem, said a big inquiry was likely to look into the incident.

"Israeli's pride themselves on the fact that they can patrol the airspace over the Arab world without much competition from anybody else, so this is going to be a big inquiry," he said.

"But now it's about the politics and optics of all this. The Israelis are now going to go after Iran, blame them squarely for this."
Bekaa Valley

Explosions could be heard in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley region near the Syrian border.

Al Jazeera's Khodr said Israel has been warning of late of increased Iranian involvement along its border in Syria and Lebanon.

"First they said they would not allow weapons to reach Hezbollah - the Lebanese armed Shia group [from Iran through Syrian territory]. And as of late, the Israelis have been saying that they won't allow to set up permanent bases in Syria," she said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been to Russia's capital Moscow and clearly the Russians have given him a green light to use the Syrian airspace, she said.

Israel has shot down several drones that previously tried to infiltrate its territory from Syria.

The targeting of an Iranian site in response, however, marks an escalation in the Israeli retaliation.

Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashes under Syrian anti-aircraft fire amid IDF cross-border raid
An Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashed after Syria responded with anti-aircraft fire to an Israeli operation in its territory. Syria says its military base came under Israeli fire, and it hit multiple aircraft in response.

“Massive Syrian Anti-Air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe,” IDF spokesman Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter.

The incident took place after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) intercepted an Iranian UAV, which crossed from the territory of Syria into Israel. In response, the Israeli military attacked Iranian positions in Syria. The operation triggered anti-aircraft fire by Syrian forces.

The Israeli “aggression” targeted an army base in the central region of Syria, Sana reported, citing a military official, who also said that Syrian air defenses struck more than one jet. The Israeli military denied that:“They all returned safely, except for one that crashed in Israel,” Conricus said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is currently holding security consultations and approving the necessary actions in real time following the incidents, official Israeli sources told Haaretz.

Images emerged online purporting to show the F-16 crash site and an operation to evacuate the pilots.

IDF spokesman Ronen Manelis earlier said: “We identified an Iranian drone UAV which took off from Syrian territory. The drone was identified by IAF systems and was downed by an IAF helicopter. The Iranian drone fell in our territory and is in our possession.” He described Israeli operation in Syria as “a surgical action deep in Syria.”

Red alert sirens were heard in multiple areas across northern Israel, initially in the town of Beit She’an and later in the surrounding areas and Golan Heights. Local residents told Haaretz that they heard many blasts and reported heavy aerial activity in the area near the Jordanian and Syrian borders.

Syria has repeatedly protested Israeli attacks on targets inside Syria. Earlier this week, Israeli warplanes attacked military targets near Damascus from Lebanese airspace, with the Syrian Army claiming it destroyed most of the Israeli rockets. In January, Israel launched three attacks on military targets in Syria, using jets and ground-to-ground missiles. Back then, Damascus claimed that it shot down one Israeli jet and one missile.

Israeli attacks on Syria imperil Russia-backed de-escalation zone – Moscow
The attacks by Israeli forces on targets in Syria are a cause of serious concern for Russia, the foreign ministry said. They may trigger violence and destabilize the de-escalation zone in south of the country.

In a statement on Saturday, the Russian ministry called on all regional players to “exercise restraint and avoid any action that could further complicate the situation.” It stressed the need to respect the sovereignty of “Syria and other nations in the region.”

“Our special concern is the threat of escalation of tension inside and around the zones of de-escalation in Syria, the creation of which became an important factor for reduction of violence on the Syrian soil,” the ministry said. The four zones, including one in southern Syria, are a mechanism backed by Russia, Turkey, and Iran, meant to deflate the conflict potential in Syria and lead to a negotiated peaceful transition.

Moscow added that there were Russian service members stationed in Syria and said it considered any threat to their lives unacceptable.

The statement comes after a flare-up in Syria on Saturday. It began with Israel reporting an incursion of an Iranian drone, which it said it downed. Israel later launched a cross-border attack on an Iranian target in Syria, where it believes the drone was launched. Syrian air defenses responded to the attack and one Israeli jet crashed. Israel eventually launched more attacks on Syrian and Iranian targets inside Syria.

We could ‘destroy all US bases in region & create hell for Zionist regime’ – Iranian commander
Tehran has dismissed Tel Aviv’s claims concerning an Iranian UAV and a downed Israeli jet as “ridiculous.” An Iranian commander also warned Iran could unleash “hell” on the “Zionist regime” and destroy all US bases in the area.

“The claim about the flight of an Iranian drone and Iran’s involvement in the downing of a Zionist fighter jet is so ridiculous that it does not merit a comment,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said. He added that Iranian officials are acting in Syria only as advisers and do so “at the request of the… legitimate and lawful government.”

What’s more, any “aggressive actions” by Tel Aviv would trigger a serious response. That is because Iran is capable of creating “hell for the Zionists,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the deputy head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps, said.

Qassemi added that Syria is a sovereign state and its government and armed forces, have a “legitimate right to defend [its] territorial integrity and counter any kind of foreign aggression.” In the early hours of Saturday, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claimed they intercepted an Iranian UAV, which crossed from the territory of Syria into Israel. In response, Israel conducted airstrikes on Iranian positions in Syria.

The Israeli military later said that one Israeli F-16 crashed due to the “massive Syrian anti-air fire.” The pilots ejected and survived the incident. In response to the crash, the IDF said it struck 12 Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria, including air defense batteries. Damascus denounced Israeli actions as “aggression.”

Touching upon the US policy towards Iran and the sanctions imposed on the Islamic republic, Salami said that Iran remains strong against all odds and could potentially destroy “all American military bases in the region by launching attacks from inside the country.”

Tensions between Israel and Iran rapidly flared up following the Saturday incident. The IDF warned Syria and Iran against “violating” its sovereignty by saying that both countries would pay a heavy price if they defy this warning. It also said that Tehran and Damascus are “playing with fire.”

イスラエルのF-16戦闘機を撃墜したミサイルは、ソ連が開発した古い対空ミサイルSー125ネヴァ(NATOコードネームではSA-3ゴア)でした。コソボ紛争において米軍のステルス戦闘機F-117を撃墜したミサイルと同じものです。古くても良いミサイルです。イスラエルも用心しないと危ないですね。
