  • Israel hits out at Iran after Syria friendly fire incident

Deputy Speaker of the Knesset MK Tali Ploskov (Kulanu) met with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a Conference of Euro-Asian Women, which included some of Euro-Asia's female leaders.

The Kremlin said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted Israel's offer to share detailed information about the Israeli air raid that triggered the Syrian fire and led to the plane's loss.

The incident on Monday was the worst case of friendly fire between Moscow and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime since Russian forces intervened in the conflict in 2015.

"I told him that the root of the problem is Iran's attempt to use Syrian territory for attacks against Israel and to arm our enemies, such as Hezbollah". It said the Syrian army fired the missiles that hit the Russian plane when the Israeli jets had already returned to Israeli airspace.

Israel says it was targeting a Syrian military facility where weapons manufacturing systems were "about to be transferred on behalf of Iran" to Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah. The incident threatened to derail the close security ties between Russian Federation and Israel.

The downing of the plane sparked a flurry of condemnation from Moscow, which initially accused Israel of using its plane for cover during the attack and failing to notify the Russian military ahead of time.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel is "constantly alert to the dangers that threaten us".

Israel has provided Moscow with proof it bore no responsibility for bringing down a Russian plane in Syria, an Israeli military official said on Friday. "They fired quite recklessly and irresponsibly and unprofessionally into the air long after our planes were no longer there". "Putin later said that the loss of the Russian plane resulted from a string of tragic circumstances".

In its report, the IDF said Syria unleashed a "rampage" of anti-aircraft fire in all directions during the Israeli assault, according to Ynet, which cited a copy of the 40-page document.

"Moscow views as irresponsible and unfriendly actions of Israeli Air Force, which exposed Russian Il-20 aircraft to danger and led to death of 15 servicemen", the Russian embassy said in a tweet.

It also said "new information" on the incident would "emerge soon", without elaborating.

Senior Israeli ministers also held phone calls with their Russian counterparts.
