Israel Intercepts Incoming Drone from Syria

Thank you Putin! We support Russia because Russia supported us’ Syrian fans at World Cup 99nh Danny Armstrong

Israel seized a large swathe of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it, in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

While the Russian and Israeli leaders sat down for talks in the Kremlin, a senior Iranian envoy also headed to Moscow amid intensive Syria-focused diplomatic efforts ahead of Putin's summit in Helsinki on Monday with President Donald Trump.

The drone, which had also overflown Jordan and appeared to have been unarmed and designed for surveillance, was downed near the Sea of Galilee at the foothills of the Golan Heights, said Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus.

After it was shot by a US -supplied Patriot missile, drone fragments fell into the water.

In February Israel shot down an Iranian-operated drone that it tracked entering its airspace from Syria.

Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, called on the U.N. Security Council to condemn Wednesday's drone incident as a "dangerous act that not only threatens Israel, but the stability of the entire region". Russian Federation has previously told Israel they don't have the capability of doing so, and that the Iranian presence is up to Syria.

The IDF decried the infiltration as a violation of Israeli sovereignty.

"We are still looking into why it crossed - whether it was on a military mission and crossed on objective, or it strayed", he said, while adding that the latter scenario was "not common".

The shoot-down came weeks after Israeli forces fired at another drone from Syria. It is for Trump to accept Russia's occupation of the Crimean peninsula and East Ukraine and lift the sanctions imposed on it while allowing Putin to control Syria, and in exchange Putin expels the Iranians and their followers from Syria thus granting Netanyahu a historic victory. Russian Federation has been a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war and its forces on the ground have managed to turn the tide in Assad's favor in recent years.

"We made a decision to bring with us two wonderful children who are bravely fighting cancer: Mika, whom my wife and I have known for nine years, and Alon, whose parents emigrated from Russian Federation and who likes soccer very much".

"A few hours ago, a Syrian aircraft infiltrated Israel's airspace", he said.
