Syria Repels «Israeli» Attack on Military Base, Downs Jet
Local Editor

The Syrian Army's air defense confronted a new "Israeli" aggression on a military base in the central area and hit at least one F-16 warplane, Syrian state TV SANA reported, citing a military source.


Syria said that its aerial defense had repelled an "Israeli" attack against an army base in central Syria, state TV reported.

The official said more than one "Israeli" aircraft had been hit.

The "Israeli" military confirmed that one F-16 had gone down in northern "Israeli" entity, and that its two pilots had ejected and had been located and transferred to hospital.

The "Israeli" army said later that one of the pilots was in serious condition, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The "Israeli" military claimed that it had attacked positions inside Syrian territory after it intercepted a drone launched from Syria on Saturday.

Downed "Israeli" jet

Meanwhile, Syrian media reported later on Saturday that explosions were heard near the capital, Damascus, as the Syrian air defense responded to "new Israeli aggression."

Separately, The Jerusalem Post cited "Israel's" Channel 2 as reporting that the Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv had temporarily halted air traffic.

Relatedly, "Israeli" War Minister Avigdor Lieberman joined the cabinet meeting with "Israeli" PM Benjamin Netanyahu and senior security officials held over the situation in the northern front.
