Israeli fighter jet shot down by Syrian fire
Syrian anti-aircraft fire shot down an Israeli fighter jet on Saturday and Israel struck an Iranian target that had launched an unmanned aircraft into its airspace from Syria, the Israeli military said.

“IDF (Israel Defence Forces) has targeted the Iranian control systems in Syria that sent the #UAV into Israeli airspace. Massive Syrian Anti-Air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe,” Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter.

Israeli media said the jet crashed in northern Israel.


  1. An Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashed after Syria responded with anti-aircraft fire to an Israeli operation in its territory. Syria says its military base came under Israeli fire, and it hit multiple aircraft in response.
    "Massive Syrian Anti-Air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe,” IDF spokesman Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter.

    The incident took place after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) intercepted an Iranian UAV, 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.

  2. Los medios de defensa antiaérea siria han repelido un ataque israelí contra una base militar en la parte central del país, impactando a más de un avión, reporta la agencia SANA, citando fuentes militares.

    De acuerdo con la fuente de la agencia, esta madrugada los aviones de Israel "cometieron una nueva agresión contra una base militar en la región central". "Nuestra defensa antiaérea abrió fuego e impactó a más de un avión", agregó.

    Este sábado, el Ejército de Israel reportó haber interceptado y derribado un dron iraní procedente del territorio sirio. En respuesta, los militares atacaron "objetivos iraníes" en ese país, tras lo cual, según afirman, la defensa antiaérea siria abrió fuego contra sus aviones.

    El Ejército israelí informó que como consecuencia fue derribado su caza F-16, pero los dos pilotos lograron catapultarse.

  3. The army air defense confronted a new Israeli aggression on a military base in the central area and hit more than one aircraft.

    A military source told SANA that the Israeli enemy on Saturday down launched a new aggression against one of the military bases in the central area, and the army air defense confronted the aggression and hit more than one aircraft.
