Netanyahu Orders Israeli Defence Forces To Attacks Iranian Troops in Syria

Benjamin Netanyahu’s security cabinet has ordered the Israeli Defense Forces to aggressively act against Iran’s military build-up in Syria without stopping coordination on Syria with the Russian army, the cabinet said in a statement released by the Israeli government press service.

“The cabinet instructs the Israeli Defense Forces to continue to act against Iran’s military entrenchment attempts in Syria while continuing security coordination with Russia,” the security cabinet said in a statement. The ministers share the pain of the Russian people over the death of Russian troops in IL-20 Aircraft due to actions of the Syrian army, the document read.

The IL-20 reconnaissance plane was shot down on the evening of September 17 over the Mediterranean Sea when it was returning to the Hmeymim Airbase. The Russian Defense Ministry reported that it was downed by a missile from Syria’s S-200 air defence system when it was carrying out an attack on four Israeli F-16 planes that had attacked facilities in the Latakia Governorate.
