According to reports, Syria’s air defences fired at the intruding Israeli spy drones as they flew Quneitra, forcing them to leave the Syrian airspace.
“Syrian air defences have repelled Israeli surveillance planes over Quneitra, forcing them to leave Syrian airspace,” the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Wednesday night.
Wednesday incident comes few days after Syrian air defences downed an Israeli F-16 fighter jet as it was carrying strikes in the Arab country. The aircraft two pilots were injured after they ejected from the plane, with one of them was seriously wounded.
Saturday’s confrontation was described by many commentators as a new phase of the battle with the Zionist entity, with Israeli media saying that President Bashar Al-Assad “has shifted from the stage of threats to stage of actions” as he regained control of more than 80% of the Syrian territory.
Over the past years, the Israeli regime has often violated international laws by carrying out attacks in Syria, often claiming that it hit positions or convoys belonging to Iran. This is while Iran has no military presence in Syrian territory, only offering advisory military assistance to the Syrian government fighting an all-out foreign-sponsored terrorism.
