Israel Intercepts Incoming Drone from Syria

12 July 2018

Maybe he thinks there is a unique chance to end the Golan dispute in exchange of supporting the Assad regime to be in control over all of Syria. "More details to follow", an army statement said.

None of the reports have been confirmed, and there was no comment from Israel.

The drone was an intelligence-gathering aircraft and belonged to the Syrian government and its remains have already been retrieved just south of the Sea of Galilee, nearly ten kilometers (six miles) inside Israel, an army spokesman told reporters.

The IDF spokesman confirmed that a Syrian UAV was intercepted by a Patriot missile.

The military quickly recovered the fragments of the drone in an area south of the lake.

"The UAV infiltrated the Israeli border from Syria, the IDF said".

This is why Barnea is doubting the possibility of a solution and saying that the Israelis miss Hafez al-Assad, who was able to play on all sides.

"As of now there has not been a response to it". These American concessions in exchange of coaxing Moscow against Iran seem like a very generous "deal of the century" for Russian Federation, unless we see a better price! The IDF has not yet said exactly who flew either drone. He said defensive measures were taken.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated that warning during a visit to Moscow for talks with Vladimir Putin.

On Monday, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman toured the Golan Heights, where he threatened Syria with a "strong response" should it violate a delicate decades-old ceasefire agreement in the region.

Conricus said that after the drone was destroyed by a single Patriot missile, its remains landed near the Sea of Galilee.

"The Patriot aerial defense system identified the threat and tracked it until its interception". And in November 2017, the military shot down another Syrian military drone that approached Israeli airspace.

Shortly afterward, Netanyahu held a lengthy meeting with Putin in which they established a joint Israeli-Russian team to coordinate military activities and mitigate "misunderstandings". Early reports are suggesting Netanyahu is going to offer a major trade with an eye toward getting Russian Federation to kick the Iranians out of Syria.

According to a report last month, Israel's willingness to leave Assad in power echoes the U.S. position.
