Israeli military said that it shot down a Syrian fighter jet that entered its airspace in Southern Golan. The Israeli Defense Forces announced in a tweet early Tuesday that two Patriot missiles were fired and then intercepted the fighter jet.
The incident came a day after Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in his Jerusalem office with a Russian delegation led by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov.
The meeting was also attended by Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, Israel Defense Forces Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot.
Netanyahu reportedly rejected a Russian proposal to withdraw Iranian forces 100 km from Syria's disputed border with Israel.
