Syrian air defense downs several 'enemy targets' in southern Syria – reports

Syrian and Russian news outlets reported the shootdown, saying the jet was hit by Syrian air defenses in southern Syria Thursday.

"Our air defences fired on hostile targets over the Kisweh area and downed them", SANA said, citing a military source.

Israel has bombed the al-Kiswah area for allegedly hosting Iranian missile bases, according to the report.

Syria claimed the country's anti-missile systems "downed an Israeli military plane as well as four missiles..."

The source said that all of the missiles aimed at the town of Kiswah, south of the capital Damascus, were shot down before landing on their targets.

The attacks were reported after Israel reported a single incident of Syrian fire landing in the Israeli-occupied Golan.

Damascus Friday accused Israel of striking Syria, in what a monitor said were the such first missiles to hit the country since an air defense upgrade after the downing of a Russian plane in September.

Working to prevent the entrenchment of Iranian forces and the transfer of advanced weaponry to Hezbollah, the Israel Air Force has admitted to carrying out hundreds of airstrike in Syria. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack but Israel has carried out dozens of airstrikes on Syria over the past years.

Russian Federation subsequently upgraded Syrian air defences with the delivery of the advanced S-300 system, which Damascus said last month would make Israel "think carefully" before carrying out further air raids in Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Moscow, however, that his government would continue to hit hostile targets in Syria and "continue security coordination" with Russian Federation.

Speaking after the talks, Russia's Syria negotiator Aleksandr Lavrentyev said the committee was of utmost importance.

The S-300 systems were delivered to Syria last month, but they are not yet believed to be in use, as the Syrian air defense teams still need to be trained to operate them.
