Israel threatens to destroy Syrian air defenses

Israel has denied a claim by Syria that it shot down an Israeli plane carrying out pre-dawn raids on a military target near PalmyraMore

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Saturday called for United Nations condemnation of such brazen Israeli violation of Syria's territorial integrity, urging the worldwide body to do its utmost to restrain the Tel Aviv regime from repeating measures in violation of peace and security.

"Our central problem, and this above and beyond all of the other issues, is the transfer of advanced weapons from Syria to Lebanon", Liberman said.

Speaking on public radio on Sunday Lieberman said: "The next time the Syrians use their air defence systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation".

Nasrallah said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had recently visited Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow to express his deep concern over the likely collapse of Daesh in Syria since such a development would mark a great triumph for the resistance front in the Middle East region.

The leader of Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, confirmed on Saturday that an Israeli airstrike hit one of his group's strategic strongholds in Syria on Thursday night. "At no point was the safety of Israeli civilians or aircraft compromised".

Rima Khalaf, the executive secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), resigned from the UN post after refusing to withdraw a report that concludes "Israel has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole".

The Syrian Army command said in a statement it had downed one of the Israeli Air Force jets that violated its airspace, while the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) denied these claims to Sputnik.

Burr says he's confident his former Republican colleague will help the intelligence community face a wide range of challenges. The vote followed another similarly bipartisan vote Wednesday confirming former Sen.

In a speech on Saturday, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah accused Israel of intervening in the Syrian civil war on a daily basis, and claimed that Netanyahu "fears the collapse" of the Islamic State group in Syria. "Every time we identify a transfer like this, we will work to prevent the transfer of game-changing weapons".

Israeli aerial defense systems intercepted one of the missiles, the army said, without elaborating. Israel views the organization as enemy militants.

The firing of missiles from Syria toward Israeli aircraft is extremely rare, though Israeli military officials reported a shoulder-fired missile a few months ago.
