    Default Syrian army says it shot down Israeli jet that was aiding ISIS terrorists

    If this is confirmed, should US re-evaluate foreign aid to all parties in mideast?

    Fri Mar 17, 2017 | 5:09am EDT Syrian army says it shot down Israeli jet



    Syria's army high command said in a statement on Friday Israeli jets breached Syrian air space early in the morning and attacked a military target near Palmyra in what it described as an act of aggression that aided Islamic State.

    It said its air defenses shot down one of the Israeli jets over what it called "occupied ground" and damaged another.

    The pilot was probably rescued by ISIS fighter the moment he ejected out of the jet. Now waiting for the video of the crashed jet which should be coming out any time now

    Don't hold your breath, ALL sides involved can and do lie with high frequency.
    It amazes me how many people around here think that if Israel is bad PLO/Syria/etc. must be good, or if Neocons are bad Putin must be good.

    Some reports suggest it is more like this :

    Syria shot an anti-aircraft missle at an Israeli jet on a bombing sortie over Syria - when the mid-air explosion occurred Syria assumed it was a hit,
    but Israel says their "Arrow" missile defense system blew it out of the air and that was the mid-air strike everyone in the area saw.
    All Israeli jets returned untouched in those reports.

    I know even the good guys can be full of it. Propaganda to boost the moral of their fighters.

    With stuff going on in Syria right now. Israel coming in to conduct bombing raid against the Syrian army fighting ISIS, they are definitely the bad guys and Syria the good guys for defending themselves. I am sure there are instances where Syria is the bad actor but not with this case.

    Israel tends to target suspected arms shipments believed to be on their way to Hamas in Palestine. (also sometimes in response to rockets being launched into Israel from Syria).

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    They don't have oil. I think a retaliatory strike against Venezuela is called for in this instant.

    Israel threatens to 'destroy' Syrian air defence systems

    Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Sunday threatened to destroy Syrian air defence systems after they fired ground-to-air missiles at Israeli warplanes carrying out strikes.

    "The next time the Syrians use their air defence systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation," Lieberman said on Israeli public radio.

    Israel might have to watch out whose air defense missiles they target though.
