seven months ago rather. well for more on this now we're going to cross over to our middle east correspondent tanya cramer joining us now from jerusalem tanya israel may say it doesn't want an escalation but how likely is one based on what's happened today well i mean israel has always laitos as red lines and that is another stern warning because they are concerned that iran in trenches itself in syria especially in the area that is close to the occupied israeli golan heights the armistice line of the border so they have said that before that they don't want to see iran or through its proxies like hezbollah are becoming entrenched in that area so was it significant that the army says there has been. an unmanned drone that entered israeli aspace and owning that there responded to that so i think you know military experts here are saying it's kind of this is
12:03 pm
a show of force at the same time though saying you know stating again the red lines but at the same time all saying we don't want an escalation at this point in time but i think because the situations you know what one change overnight so it's still to see you know what are the military actions they will follow in the coming days or hours. whatever may follow syria has certainly denied that its ally iran's drone did enter israeli airspace what do we know about that. well i mean we know but the israeli army put out in the statement that in the early morning hours and ukrainian a drone and to many aspects and went quite far into this and they tracked it and then decided to intercept it in response to that they carried out an air raid and launched an attack against the base apparently where this drone of a slow launched deep insights syrian territory most likely in the area. that there
12:04 pm
is an air base and then becomes interesting because the syrian added then responded very strongly and that also is a sign because we have seen every it's off israel in syria before but you know usually the response is not as strong as princely now from the syrian side and they apparently hit an f. sixteen jet so we don't that the circumstance is entirely due to part of that themselves in israeli territory the now in an israeli hospital and in response to that again apparently then the israeli army launched a large scale attack again in syrian territory as they said in the statement to confirm that and saying they targeted twelve. areas in syria with this attack. what has israel's involvement in syria been since the war broke out there. well i mean there has always been so-called
12:05 pm
spillover from the war in syria. the occupied golan heights but of course it was always if you stay you don't get involved in the war but they have put their red lines and they have. carried out ever it's when it comes to weapon transfers of his the area so that it's well known but again. it's now the response that we've been seeing in the past couple weeks to such evidence now this time because it's defend that according to the army and this drone and to israel post so i think it's good to see it seem to have settled down a bit right now but of course we don't know whether there will be any more military action following on that it doesn't seem to be reading. this and you further but again we have to wait and see what the coming days will bring because the tension certainly will stay tanya cramer in jerusalem thank you. and
