Russian Federation blames Israel for loss of aircraft to Syrian fire

Netanyahu blames Syrian regime for downed Russian plane

A Russian military jet carrying 14 servicemen vanished from radar over the Mediterranean Sea late Monday as Syria came under attack by Israeli missiles, the defence ministry said.

The command of Russia's air base at Khmeimim launched a search and rescue operation.

When asked for comment about Monday's attack, an Israeli military spokeswoman said Israel did not comment on foreign reports.

Putin's spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, on Tuesday called the deal "a landmark and crucial agreement for Syria's future" and said the shooting down of the plane will have no impact on that deal. "It goes without saying that we must get to the bottom of this".

Israel's military declined to comment, as did the prime minister's office and the Foreign Ministry.

Russia's military operation in Syria, which began in late 2015, turned the tide of the conflict in favour of Moscow's ally, Syrian regime leader Bashar al Assad, in his fight against rebels and opposition forces.

This the third reported Israeli strike in Syria since the beginning of September 2018.

Even though it was shot down off Syria's Mediterranean coast by Syrian anti-aircraft fire Moscow is blaming Israel.

Secondly Russia charges - more seriously - that the Israelis used the large radar signature of the Ilyushin turbo-prop to mask their own aircraft.

The Russian maritime patrol plane lost signal and is believed to have been shot down during an alleged Israeli missile attack in the province of Latakia. "The Israeli Air Force Commander (Aluf Amikam Norkin) will bring it to Moscow shortly", the Kremlin statement noted.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world. He said Israel is determined to block Iran from establishing a military presence in Syria and transferring weapons to its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah for use against Israel.

He said the Israeli pilots "could not have failed to see the Russian aircraft, as it was coming in to land from a height of 5 km (three miles)".

"As for retaliatory measures, they will be aimed first and foremost at further ensuring the safety of our military personnel and facilities in Syria". "As for your comparison with the downing of our plane by a Turkish fighter, this was a different situation", Putin said.

'The French army denies any involvement in this attack, ' a French army spokesman said.

For several years, Israel and Russian Federation have maintained a special hotline to prevent their air forces from clashing in the skies over Syria. Syria's government is allied to Russian Federation.

"We are surprised that UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock did not address the repeated Israeli attacks on Syria", the Syrian diplomat pointed out.

At approximately 10 P.M. Monday night four Israeli F-16 warplanes approached a Syria or Iranian military facility close to Latakia in northwestern Syria while firing missiles at the target.

Putin made his remarks several hours after the Defence Ministry put the blame squarely on Israel for "provoking" the incident. Russian Federation and Turkey struck an agreement that created a new demilitarised zone in Idlib from which "radical" militants must withdraw.
