Syria repelled Israeli surveillance planes says state media

Vastavam web: Syria today repelled Israeli surveillance planes that breached its southern border, state media reported, days after an Israeli fighter jet was downed during raids on the war-torn country.”Syrian air defences have repelled Israeli surveillance planes over Quneitra, forcing them to leave Syrian airspace,” the official SANA news agency said.That came after the Israeli military said one of its fighter jets had crashed after it came under heavy fire from Syrian air defences during strikes against “Iranian targets” in the war-hit country.

Israel has carried out dozens of air strikes on the Syrian armed forces and their allies since the civil war broke out in 2011.
