Hawzah News Agency (Damascus, Syria) - An Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashed in the north of Israel after Syria responded with anti-aircraft fire to an Israeli aerial offensive targeting what the Israeli occupation army claimed to be Iranian drone control systems in Syria.
"Massive Syrian anti-air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe,” Israeli army spokesman Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter.
The incident took place after the Israel army claimed it had intercepted an Iranian drone, which crossed from the territory of Syria into Israel. In response, the Israeli military attacked Iranian positions in Syria. The operation triggered anti-aircraft fire by Syrian forces.
The Israeli occupation army has put its air force on high alert following its warplane crash and said its senior commanders would hold an urgent meeting to assess the situation and agree on a response.
