Conricus said it was intercepted well inside Israeli territory over the city of Beit Shean, near the Jordanian border. "Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn't know how it will end", he said. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said in a special statement.

"This incident proves every one of those warnings correct", Danon wrote.

That prompted Israel to unleash a dozen retaliatory strikes on both Syrian and Iranian targets inside Syria.

The military alliance fighting in support of the Syrian government denied any of its drones had entered Israeli air space.

The statement added that "during the attack, antiaircraft missiles were fired towards Israel, triggering alarms that were heard in northern Israel".

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Shabbos afternoon convened with Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and IDF Chief of Staff Lt.

Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus warned that Syria and Iran were "playing with fire", but stressed his country was not seeking an escalation.

The Israeli action came following the IDF's announcement that one of its military jets had crashed after coming under fire from anti-aircraft missiles in Syria.

" Omarosa was sacked three times on the "Apprentice" and this was the fourth time we let her go", Shah said. When Mathews asked her if USA citizens should be anxious , she nodded, adding, "It's not going to be OK".


Touching upon the United States policy towards Iran and the sanctions imposed on the Islamic republic, Salami said that Iran remains strong against all odds and could potentially destroy "all American military bases in the region by launching attacks from inside the country".

Later, Syria state TV said its air defenses responded to new Israeli raids near the capital Damascus.

Israel seized the strategic plateau from Syria in the 1967 war and fought off an invasion there in 1973. Israel is aware of Russia's decisive influence in Syria, and America's absence, which is why Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, maintains close ties with Putin.

Israel has struck weapons convoys destined for Hezbollah, which is fighting alongside Syrian forces, nearly 100 times since 2012. At one of these bases, Khmeimim Air Base, not far from the Mediterranean shore, is the Russian command bunker for its forces in Syria, which has a direct line of communication with the Israeli high command.

Israel has shot down several drones that previously tried to infiltrate its territory from Syria. "It brazenly violated our sovereignty, it infiltrated its aircraft into Israeli territory from Syrian territory", he said, referring to an Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle.

The jet crash represented a severe blow to Israel's prestige and could mark a major change after years in which it acted against targets in Syria with relative impunity.

A official who supports Syrian President Bashar Assad told Reuters that the downing of the jet was a "message" to Israel, but predicted the conflict would not escalate.

The Russian foreign ministry called for "restraint" from all parties.
