3:02 pm
israel and syria in the years israel's military says the country is not seeking any . elation with syria. for more we're joined now by our middle east correspondent tanya kramer who joins us from jerusalem so tiny syria is denying that its ally iran's drone did enter israeli airspace was the latest we know about this incident well yes they're saying that it didn't enter the israeli air space and that it was under a governing intelligence. border area now according to the israeli army however they are saying that in the early morning hours an unmanned drone was entering israeli aspace they tracked it and shot it down at some point in response to that they are deployed at planes attacking inside syria at the launching base of this drone. why that those israeli fighter jets well on their way
3:03 pm
back the. syrian air defense. of one of the jets was apparently hit we don't know all the circumstances but it went down in israeli territory the two pilots stick with it eject themselves and now getting treatment at an israeli hospital so the incident and then went on because after that the israeli army launched musset they say a massive scale attack on syrian territory as they say targeting several twelve targets on a syrian saws so the incident at the moment seems over at least militarily but of course now we hear. you know the different versions of the events well despite all of these quite serious incidents that you've been describing israel says it doesn't want an escalation yet how likely is it that we're not going to see
3:04 pm
one based on today's events. well it seems that most of the military analyst tells us saying that none of the sites would like to see an escalation. but at the same time i mean it is about as concern has always been that iran and through its proxies like hezbollah will entrenched itself in the area near the israeli golan heights by golan heights near the border area and they want to avoid that so this is the israeli line has been you know this is a red line and they will whatever they see if it's a threat they will attack this now. they also say i mean this is a show of strength now from all sides i think you could say. nobody wants an escalation but of course we have to wait and see whatever follows from this incident but no time in talis just want has been israel's involvement in
3:05 pm
syria to what extent have they been conducting operations there since the civil war broke out in that country. what israel has always said that they stay out of the conflict but their have their own bread lines and they have been conducting many air raids into syria against hezbollah and other targets what they see as the threat so israel has been in a way operating. in syria but what has been new all this time is the response by the regime and you can see that there is maybe also more competence because of the changing political ground in syria by responding with such a massive barrage you have i mean this has been. the past couple of weeks we have seen more response to that whereas before that and ever it wasn't really i mean there wasn't any response to that so this is what what is the difference right now and we have to wait and see how this will develop because the tensions of their
