Syria Downs Israeli F16 Jet, Pilots Safe, Israeli Army Says

Meanwhile, Iran, Russia and the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon - key allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - dismissed as "lies" Israeli claims that an Iranian drone had entered Israeli airspace, news wires report.

Israel said they have the Iranian drone in possession.

The Israeli military in the response of the event struck targets in Syria.

Iran issued a joint statement alongside the other main allies of the Syrian regime, Russian Federation and Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, vowing a "relentless response" to Israeli "aggression". "That's why our response is as severe as it is".

In response, Israel launched 12 attacks on Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria.
