Syria walks back claim of downed Israeli fighter jet

Missile strike in Syria

Another missile reportedly struck Harfa, which is near the border with Israel, and is a Syrian military base.

There was no immediate comment from Israel, which nearly never confirms or denies airstrikes in Syria. This was reported by the RIA Novosti news Agency with reference to own sources in the security cap.

On Thursday evening, Syria's national TV said the Syrian air defence missiles responded to a contentious missile strike, noting that all enemy targets were destroyed and that the foreign attack did not achieve its intended goal. As a matter of policy, Israel does not confirm nor deny such attacks except when forced to.
