  • Israel hits out at Iran after Syria friendly fire incident

Israel has struck multiple times inside Syria in recent months and says it will continue to operate to stop weapons reaching Hezbollah, a Lebanon-based movement backed by the Jewish state's arch-rival Iran. The incident killed 15 Russians on board the airplane.

The report said Russian Federation demanded Israel conduct a new investigation into the incident.

Following the incident, in an attempt to get ahead of the crisis, the IDF acknowledged the strike and released some of the findings of its initial investigation, which found that the Syrian air defense units fired "indiscriminately" and "did not bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air". "Putin said that many mistakes were made during the incident and that he expected the facts to be examined".

Putin's criticism has been muted, but other parts of the Russian government have maintained a harsh line with Israel over the incident.

Israel, which carries out regular strikes against pro-government forces in war-torn Syria, has a de-confliction agreement with key regime backer Russian Federation to avoid clashes between their respective air forces.

It added that Israeli planes were already in Israeli airspace when Syria fired the missiles that hit the Russian plane.

Hezbollah has "accurate missiles that if used in any future war will change the entire equation", Nasrallah said.

But the Israeli delegation returned from Moscow Friday morning, contradicting the Al Mayadeen report. Al-Mayadeen reported earlier this week that Russian Federation had rejected Israel's findings regarding the incident.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday Israel will defend itself against Iran, after a friendly fire incident in Syria this week linked to Israeli strikes on Iranian targets there. The daily said Russian Federation had effectively sealed off much of the airspace and waters surrounding Cyprus in a further increase of its activities in the area following the spy plane downing.

An Israeli military delegation travelled to Moscow on Thursday to express sorrow over the deaths and to share information on the incident with their Russian counterparts.

The paper noted that the Russian operations would cause considerable difficulties for traffic moving into and out of the island. "This comes from the same man who said after 2006 that if he had known what Israel's response would be to the abduction of three of our soldiers, he would have thought twice about doing it", Netanyahu said.
