Israel jet crashes after ‘Iranian targets’ attacked in Syria

JERUSALEM: An Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashed in Israel Saturday as the air force was carrying out attacks against “Iranian targets” in Syria after intercepting a drone, a spokesman said.

“IDF (Israel Defence Force) has targeted the Iranian control systems in Syria that sent the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) into Israeli airspace. Massive Syrian anti-air fire, one F-16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe,” Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant Jonathan Conricus wrote on Twitter.

According to a separate military statement, Israeli forces had identified an “Iranian UAV” launched from Syria and intercepted it in Israeli airspace with a combat helicopter.

Police said the F-16 crashed in the Jezreel valley in northern Israel.

“Iran is responsible for this severe violation of Israeli sovereignty,” Conricus said on Twitter. – AFP
