The General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces announced on Tuesday that the Israeli enemy’s air force attacked a Syrian military position in the countryside of the southern Quneitra province at 1 am on September 13, 2016.Israel loves terrorists!
The General Command said in a statement the Syrian air defense forces responded to the attack and shot down an Israeli warplane to the southwest of Quneitra and an Israeli drone to the west of Sa’sa’ town in the southwestern countryside of Damascus.
It noted that the Israeli attack came in support of the armed terrorist groups and in a desperate attempt to raise the deteriorating morale of their members due to the heavy losses they have suffered in Quneitra.
Israel claims it was responding to errant fire, if it occurred at all, it was undoubtedly their terror crew looking for support. The usual behaviour for both parties. Every single time Israel responds they strike SAA rather then their terrorists.
-The Israeli military said its aircraft attacked targets in Syria hours after the mortar bomb from fighting among factions in SyriaSputnik
The Syrian army said it had shot down an Israeli warplane and a drone after the Israeli attack.
Denying any of its aircraft had been lost, the Israeli military said in a statement: "Overnight two surface-to-air missiles were launched from Syria after the mission to target Syrian artillery positions. At no point was the safety of (Israeli) aircraft compromised”
The Syrian armed forces shot down an Israeli warplane and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) following an attack on their positions in the neighboring Quneitra province, Syrian media reported Tuesday.
The attack, which Syria’s SANA news service attributed to the general command of the Syrian Armed Forces, took place at 1 a.m. local time (22:00 GMT)
Israel is acknowledging that Syria shot missiles at their jets
"In a rare response to a foreign report, the IDF on Tuesday denied that any of its aircraft had been downed, but said Syrian forces had fired two surface-to-air missiles after the Israeli strike Monday night on a Syrian position.
However, the military said the missiles were nowhere near the vicinity of the Israel aircraft. The IDF added that all the Israeli jets had returned to base"
Just my opinion, but the fact that Israel issued a denial to the Syrian report suggests their plane/drone or both had been struck. It appears they, Israel, were forced to issue the denial as a face saving measure. Israel's strikes lines up, time wise, with the Syrian shoot down. Israel acknowledges Syria fired at their plane and drone. Syria gives the locales. Both narratives confirm one another - except for the ending. It seems to me Syria downed, at least one, if not both the plane and drone down.
According to the Syrian Army statement the Israeli attack took place at around 1 A.M. The statement further says that the missiles were fired at an Israeli jet and a UAV west of Sa'sa, in the Syrian Golan Heights. The statement said that the Israeli attack was aimed at helping the rebel forces and raising their moral after the "defeat" they suffered in the Quneitra region.
Long term readers here were fully informed, years ago regarding Israel's backing of the terrorists destroying Syria- Infiltrated with NGO's. Setting up field hospitals. Took terrorists into Israel including to hospital for treatment beyond what was available at their field hospitals. Took many shots at SAA on Syrian territory, airstrikes and more, in full support of their Islamist thugs.So this video will not be a surprise to anyone:
In a phone call made by an Israeli reporter and a field commander from the Saudi-backed Jaish al-Islam, the later confirmed that they are not abiding by the ceasefire with the Syrian government, offering the reporter – who spoke fluent Arabic– to send him combat footage from the battlefield.Brother? In killing? In arms?
When asked to address the government of Israel, the rebel commander demanded a full support of arms, food and all kinds of aid.
"I call on our brothers the Israelis to support the revolution in Syria, and provide us with everything; weapons, food, aid…anything brother".
