Syria: We shot down an Israeli Jets

Although Russia has staunchly stood by the Syrian government in the country's six-year civil war, Russia has generally avoided summoning Israeli officials after reported Israeli operations in Syria in light of deconfliction mechanisms agreed upon between Israel and Russia in 2015.

"Our air defense engaged them and shot down one warplane over occupied territory, hit another one, and forced the rest to flee", the Syrian army said in a statement reported by state news agency SANA.

"Several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria following the mission and (Israeli) aerial defence systems intercepted one of the missiles", it said.

Woman forces her way out of vehicle boot after kidnapping
While the kidnapper was able to drive off before police arrived, the kidnapped woman's going to be alright. AlSabah noted that the man became angry when he was unable to withdraw money.

He warned that "every time we'll identify a smuggling attempt we will act to foil the shipment of tie-breaking weaponry".

This statement, too, is unusual in that as a matter of policy, the IDF has not publicized the periodic strikes it carries out in Syria to prevent high-value weaponry from crossing the border into Lebanon for Hezbollah's possible future use against Israel.

"The Israeli Air Force carried out airstrikes on a convoy in Syria, carrying a batch of weapons for Hezbollah", Katz said in a statement, distributed by his press service.

The reported strike came hours after Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatened to destroy Syrian air defense systems, after Israeli aircraft were targeted during a bombing run early Friday morning.

The Israeli army denied the regime's claims, saying none of its jets were hit.

Observers saw Russian Federation summoning the ambassador as a message from Moscow echoing its control over Syria or areas that are still under the control of Bashar al Assad. It would not say whether any other missiles struck Israeli-held territory, but said the safety of Israeli civilians and Israeli aircraft was "not compromised". The United States, Israel, and the Arab League consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization while the European Union classifies Hezbollah's military wing as a terrorist group.

"Overnight IAF [Israeli Air Force] aircraft targeted several targets in Syria".

The group said it was an Israeli drone that had carried out the strike.

The soldiers fired back, triggering an exchange of gunfire.
