The Syrian air defense shot down an Israeli war plane after it breached Syrian airspace and bombed Syrian army positions near Palmyra on Friday night.
The IDF confirmed it had conducted airstrikes on several targets near Palmyra in a raid overnight, but reported that all of its planes returned to their base in Israel. At no point the safety of Israeli civilians or aircraft was compromised.
In January, Israel bombed a military airport near Damascus to encourage and support terrorists on the ground. Last month Israeli military aircraft conducted an airstrike on Syrian government forces stationed near the Lebanese border.
After Israeli Air Force planes struck several targets in Syria on Thursday night, Damascus retaliated by activating its air defense systems and firing a number of missiles at Israeli jets. The Syrian air defenses shot down one of the Israeli intruders and hit another one.
While the western media sheds their focus on what’s happening in northern Syria, Israel is supporting Al-Nusra and ISIS with airstrikes in southern Syria. According to Israeli Channel 10, Israeli planes were targeted by the Syrian defense forces using S-200 surface-to-air-missile systems, also known as SA-5.
The so-called civil war in Syria has been lasting for around 6 years, with Syrian government troops fighting against numerous foreign supported terror organizations such as Al-Nusra and ISIS, which are outlawed in Russia.
The nation-wide cease-fire was introduced on December 30, 2016, but terrorists organizations are not part of the cease-fire deal. At the moment the Russian S-300 and S-400 are in place in northern Syria, and Russia has warned the US-coalition and NATO not to strike the Syrian army.
The war crimes committed in Syria already killed about 500.000 people on the ground, while over 10 million war victims have been displaced and/or deported to refugee camps inside Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Europe.
The genocide program is in full force in order to eliminate certain Islamic blood lines. The Muslim-holocaust is not reported by the mainstream media to avoid unrest at home.
