The Syrian air defense system shot down an Israeli warplane violating the Arab country’s air space.
The Israeli fighter jet was targeted over the city of Al-Quneitra on Friday.
Israel regularly violates the Syrian airspace and it launches missile attacks against the Arab country.
On Friday, the Israeli Air Force resumed airstrikes on Western Syria, targeting Brigade 68 Base in Khan Al-Sheih in Damascus province and Brigade 90 Base in the al-Quneitra province after a six hour halt in attacks that followed their multiple air raids over the Golan Heights.
The Brigade 68 Base has no heavy weaponry that can reach Israel’s borders and the soldiers inside its parameters have been under siege by the al-Qaeda-linked group of al-Nusra Front and their allies from Ajnad al-Sham and Jeish al-Islam.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli aircraft were identified as helicopters that crossed into the Syrian Golan Heights before midnight on Thursday night.
In mid-July, Israel launched missile attacks against an army base in Syria’s Southeastern Suweida province.
The Syrian dissidents were quoted by Qassioun news website as claiming that Israel fired several missiles at the base of the Syrian army’s division 150 in Suweida in which the SAM-5 anti-aircraft missiles are stocked up and is 20km away from Khalkhala airport.
Qassioun claimed that it was a deterrence measure to prevent the access of armed groups to the long-range missiles with high destructive power.
“These claims are raised as Israel is everyday increasing its assistance and supports for the terrorist groups in Syria and the terrorists have not even once attacked Israel and its interests in the region,” political analyst Seyed Mostafa Khoshcheshm said.
Reports in January said that Israeli hospitals continue admitting the terrorists who are wounded in Syria.
The terrorists wounded in fierce clashes with the Syrian army are currently undergoing treatment in the Israeli hospitals, according to the Israeli media outlets.
The admittance of a growing number of Syrian militants in the Israeli medical facilities is a clear indication of the continuing support being offered by the Tel Aviv to the terrorists who are fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
About 465 terrorists, who were wounded in Syria, have received treatment only at the Israeli Nahariya hospital in Galilee, according to reports published by the Israeli Walla website.
In December, a terrorist who had been wounded in the military operations in Syria was admitted to the Israeli Poriya hospital in Tiberias in Israel.
The Walla website reported that the injured terrorist, who had been admitted to the Poriya hospital, was 37 and had a leg wound, noting that Poriya Hospital has so far treated up to 130 wounded terrorists.
Israeli forces have already moved hundreds of terrorists who were wounded while fighting the Syrian army and people, in clear violation of the UN and Security Council resolutions.
Giving medical treatment to wounded terrorists is only one aspect of the Israeli unlimited support provided to the terrorist organizations fighting the Syrian army and attacking civilians.
This support has amounted to no less than Israeli warplanes launching attacks against sites inside the Syrian territory, proving Israel’s undoubted involvement in the internationally-devised terrorist war still raging in Syria since 2011.
