1:03 am
and striking at other planes this is clear for syria it is a thought of decision to confront the israeli air force and its careless behavior. both pilots ejected and parachuted to the israeli side of the border one is critically injured the israeli army spokesman said it was wrong it was behind the launch of the drawing but didn't say whether it was armed or not the iranians have reacted they've said that they are going to stand with syria against any felician us by israel the russians have also reacted saying that israel needs to respect syrian state to state sovereignty also what we're hearing is that the israelis want to send a strong message to the russians to get iran out of the region iran can al-jazeera western muslims well this is not the first time israel has hit targets inside syria iran has sent military advisers and allegedly thousands of its revolutionary guards to help the syrian government and that buildup of iranian

assets has been increasingly worrying for israel saying one hundred explains. this is the golan heights territory israel captured from syria in one nine hundred sixty seven the war in syria has brought iran and its allies like the lebanese armed group hezbollah closer to that border israel says that is something it won't tolerate it has reached out to russia an ally of the syrian and iranian government . before this was the deal that was signed by netanyahu and put it on the thirtieth of september when netanyahu went to russia in two thousand and fifteen and russia will prevent the iranians from building bases near the borders with israel this is when the russians entered syria and launched their military operations we have been witnessing israeli air strikes ever since. israel has struck targets inside syria for years and has had convoys carrying weapons destined for hezbollah arms depots bases clearly with a green light from russia moscow does control the air space the israeli air force
1:05 am
was flying unchallenged until saturday while it was shot down by syrian anti-aircraft batteries after it struck targets around damascus. the downing of the plane coincided with what some believe is the beginning of a more aggressive strategy to roll back iran rules america are the russians in front of a confrontation with the americans in syria are the americans in front of a possible confrontation with the russians in syria or is there an unannounced deal between the russians and americans to reduce iranian presence in syria. israel considers russia its guarantor for security along its border with syria they have talked about a buffer zone but israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has said the ceasefire agreement in southern syria didn't address what he called iranian military ambitions israel has repeatedly said it will not allow iran and its allies to entrench themselves militarily in syria and it won't allow syria to become
1:06 am
a forward operating base against israel that's a guy who calls them red lines. now the syrian government and its allies are introducing red lines of their own they say the downing of the israeli jets is a clear message that the days of carrying out attacks in syria are gone russia allied to both sides is calling for restraint and for syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity to be respected it was a serious and dangerous incident the israeli army said it was last not a war but more than a confrontation for now all sides have taken a step back after making their message clear set of. beirut al-jazeera has more now on the of reigning in response to all of this from the irani capital to run. almost immediately after the incident the reaction from the iranian foreign ministry was very clear the foreign ministry spokesman said that the assertion that iran would fly a drone into israeli airspace is clearly
