Israeli jets attack anti-aircraft battery in Syria

The military's spokesperson has said that no hits had been confirmed.

According to the Syrian statement, the anti-aircraft battery targeted the Israeli planes at 8:51 a.m., and the IAF retaliated approximately three hours later - which basically matched the timeline described by the Israeli military.

"All Israeli Air Force planes returned safely from the incursion", IDF Spokesman Ronen Manlis told reporters. Unless the Syrians decide on similar attacks in the future, which will force Israel to respond again.

Shoigu's visit to Israel is his first since becoming Russia's defense minister in 2012.

"The Syrian regime is responsible for the anti-aircraft fire".

According to Israel's military, it struck the Syrian anti-aircraft battery after an Israeli aircraft was targeted over Lebanon.

A military spokesman said the Israeli planes were on a routine reconnaissance mission over the Lebanese-Syrian border area on Monday when they came under fire from the Syrian side of the border.

In order to avoid unwanted clashes with the Russian troops in Syria, Jerusalem and Moscow have maintained a communication system over the past two years. Israel and Russian Federation coordinate their military over Syria for deconfliction.

Israel is concerned that Iran and Hezbollah are creating a new front in Syria and has sought Russian assurances that they will not be allowed near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

"Preserving the relative stability is a common interest", the lieutenant colonel said.

In a conference call with The Israel Project, which publishes The Tower, Ephraim Segoli, a retired IAF general, now with the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies, said that the unsuccessful Syrian attack against the Israeli planes was something "unique" that Israel might have to address.

Israel reported that the missile missed the IAF jets.
