Russian Federation says endangering forces unacceptable after Israeli military aggression in Syria

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits at a military outpost during a visit at Mount Hermon in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights overlooking the Israel Syria border

Downing an Israeli fighter jet by Syrian fire marks one of the most serious escalations in the region, BBC's Middle East correspondent Tom Bateman said.

In its statement Saturday, Hezbollah said the "brave confrontation of the aggressing Israeli planes", including downing an F-16, ushers in a "new strategic phase" that puts an end to the violation of Syrian airspace and territories.

"Our air defense systems responded to missiles fired by the Israeli enemy air force from over Lebanese territory on a military outpost in Damascus countryside and destroyed majority", an army statement said.

The Saturday statement on Central Military Media, which is allied with the Syrian military, called a subsequent Israeli attack on a drone station in 's central Homs province a "terrorist act", warning of "a tough and serious response". "Iran only provides military advice to Syria", Iranian TV quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying.

Iran's expanding clout during Syria's almost seven-year-long war, including deployments of Iran-backed forces near the Golan frontier, has raised alarm in Israel, which has said it would act against any threat from its regional arch-enemy Tehran.

He pleaded guilty in 1990 to six felonies and agreed to pay $600 million in penalties to settle a massive Wall Street fraud case. Bush said on Thursday that the usa needs to "welcome" immigrants and thank them for doing the "jobs that Americans won't do".

Israeli warplanes launched a second wave of raids, a "far-reaching" attack, hitting 12 targets, including three anti-aircraft defense batteries and four targets "belonging to the Iranian military apparatus in Syria".

Hizbollah said in a statement: "Today's developments mean the old equations have categorically ended".

Danny Danon, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, urged the UN Security Council to condemn Iran's actions and halt its "provocations".

The Israeli air force has targeted Syrian military sites on an nearly regular basis, on allegations that they are affiliated to Iranian and Hezbollah militias. The Israeli army released images on Twitter yesterday night showing what it said was the Iranian drone. He added that there was no Iranian or Russian anti-aircraft fire. The military said that attack caused material damage.

In response, Syria shot down more than one Israeli fighter jets, according the official.

Trump's staff have tried to utilize the concept of executive privilege to withhold information from the committee. Mike Conaway, the Republican running the committee's Russian Federation probe, said in a statement .

At approximately 4.30 am, local time, Israeli forces sighted a drone being launched from a site within Syria.

According to Kuperwasser, Moscow is "being used by the Iranians", securing Assad regime bases while Tehran continues to strengthen their hold in Syria.

The military says the pilots abandoned the aircraft and were safe.

The statement concludes: "The IDF will act determinately against such severe violations of Israeli sovereignty by Iran and Syria and will continue to act as necessary".

David Ivry, a former Israeli air force chief, told Reuters he believed it was the first time an Israeli F-16 was brought down since Israel began using the jets in the 1980s. The plane crashed into Israeli territory after being fired by the Syrian anti-aircraft defense during the operation, said Lieutenant-Colonel Conricus, recognizing that the fall of the aircraft was probably related to Syrian gunfire.
