Israel Downs Iranian Drone Strikes Targets in Syria In Retaliation

Israel's military says it has targeted what it calls Iranian sites within Syrian territory after intercepting an Iranian-made drone.

"In response, the Israeli Defense Forces stroke Iranian facilities in Syria", the Israeli Defense Forces said. It said the pilots were injured and evacuated to hospital. The drone was identified by IAF systems and was downed by an IAF helicopter. According to Manelis, Israel struck deep in Syrian territory, targeting the trailer from which the drone was launched. Sirens sounded in northern Israel as a result of massive Syrian fire.

The official said the Israeli raids hit a base in the country's central area, and called it a "new aggression".

Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said Iran was "responsible for this severe violation of Israeli sovereignty".

"This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory".

Syrian air defences opened fire in response to an Israeli act of "aggression" against a military base Saturday and hit "more than one plane", Syrian state media cited a military source as saying.

The incident along the border marks the first time during the war that an Israeli warplane has gone down after entering Syrian airspace.
