Russian Federation summoned the Israeli ambassador over airstrike Syria says helped ISIS

Russian Federation summoned the Israeli ambassador over airstrike Syria says helped ISIS”

An IDF statement said "several anti-aircraft missiles" were fired following the raid but that none hit their targets. "There will be no compromise on this issue", the defense minister stressed.

Ambassador Gary Koren was called for discussions at the ministry last Friday, the official said.

"Next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it", Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli Public Radio on Sunday.

One missile was intercepted by Israel's Arrow air defense system.

Syrian state news agency Sana said four Israeli jets carried out strikes near the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the air strikes targeted weapons bound for Lebanon's Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah and that Israel would do the same again if necessary.

The Israeli military denied that any planes had been hit.

Russian Federation and Israel had already set up a "hotline" aimed at avoiding air clashes over Syria, which Moscow said it would like to see work more effectively.

During the sortie, Israel threw its Arrow interceptor into the fray to take out what the officer said on Monday was believed to have been a Russian-made SA 5 missile.

Putin is unlikely to be persuaded by Israel's entreaties to rein in one of his allies, said Eyal Zisser, a professor of political science at Tel Aviv University.

Israel and Syria are still technically at war, though the border had remained largely quiet for decades until 2011 when the Syrian conflict began.

Israel has threatened to "destroy" Syrian air defence systems "without the slightest hesitation" after Bashar al-Assad's army fired missiles at jets carrying out airstrikes.

Israel had anticipated a conflict that would undermine the Assad regime, seriously wound Hezbollah and push back Iran's attempts to expand its influence.
