Israel shoots down Syrian drone with Patriot missile

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman leads a faction meeting of his Yisrael Beytenu party in the Knesset

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.

"Any Syrian soldier found in the buffer zone is endangering his life, " Lieberman said while touring the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

This trade, as reported by the Israeli press, would have Netanyahu offering to see Russian Federation given full relief from US-imposed sanctions in return for Russian Federation expelling Iranian military from Syria.

There were no reports of injuries or damage over the drone's incursion.

The Golan Heights was illegally captured by Israel in 1967 and annexed in 1981.

Until the military was able to determine what steps to take against the drone, the air force called in four fighter jets and two attack helicopters, which would have been able to provide a more immediate response, Conricus said.

Asked by a reporter if he anticipated a time when the Quneitra crossing would be reopened under the United Nations -monitored armistice between Israel and Syria, and whether the two old enemies could establish "some kind of relationship", Lieberman said: "I reckon we are a long way from that, but we are not ruling out anything".

The army is ordering all boats to clear out of the Sea of Galilee so forces can collect fragments of a drone that entered Israeli airspace from Syria. It had also flown over Jordan, he said.

"The IDF will not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt its civilians", the IDF added.

The Israel military has said it fired a Patriot missile at a drone coming from Syria. It is for Trump to accept Russia's occupation of the Crimean peninsula and East Ukraine and lift the sanctions imposed on it while allowing Putin to control Syria, and in exchange Putin expels the Iranians and their followers from Syria thus granting Netanyahu a historic victory. In the past, Putin has turned a blind eye to Israeli strikes on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria while making clear Russian Federation does not want Assad's rule endangered.

Israel has largely stayed out of the fighting in Syria but it has carried out dozens of airstrikes on alleged arms shipments bound for the militant group Hezbollah. "I am not confident that they are counting on the right man. Israel's real card in Syria may be Assad".
