21st Century Wire says…

As 21WIRE previously reported, Israel has attacked Syria again for the twelve time since the conflict in Syria began in 2011, only this time, Syria fired back.

First the first time ever, Israel was forced to officially acknowledge the airstrike in Syria – most likely because this time an Israeli plane was downed, as well as another possibly hit – while carrying out pre-dawn strikes against Syria near Palmyra.

Predictably, Israel are completely denying their planes were hit, for public relations reasons.

However, Russia was not happy with Israel’s reckless attacks last Friday, especially as they came on the heals of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s  visit to Moscow last week, where he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the regional security situation and well as conflicts in the airspace over Syria. Israel’s demands were that it would not stand for a Iranian military presence in Syria, or that of Hezbollah which Tel Aviv label as “Iran’s proxies.”

Clearly, Netanyahu will have to rethink his calculus after the shock of someone actually hitting back at rogue state Israel…

Syria’s use of anti-aircraft fire against Israel last Thursday night has changed the rules of the game, too, Jaafari said, adding that Syria will not stand idly by in the face of an Israeli threat.

He also claimed that when the civil war began in Syria in 2011, opposition militia groups sabotaged the anti-aircraft defense systems belonging to President Bashar Assad’s regime, giving Israel freedom to operate.

(…) Between Thursday night and Friday morning, Israeli fighter jets attacked several targets in Syria, triggering the most serious clash between Israel and Syria since the civil war erupted six years ago. In response to the airstrikes, the Assad regime’s aerial defense system fired several missiles at the jets. Israel’s Arrow anti-missile defense system was launched, shooting down one of the missiles north of Jerusalem. The incident forced Israel to admit for the first time that it had launched an aerial attack in Syria.

(…) In a separate incident, Syrian media reported Sunday that the commander of a militia fighting alongside the regime was killed in an Israeli airstrike around Quneitra, in the Golan Heights…
