“Israel just shot down a Syrian fighter jet that the Israeli military says entered the country’s airspace on Tuesday — a move that could significantly increase tensions in the region and potentially lead to a wider confrontation.
Israeli forces said the Syrian aircraft flew about 1.2 miles into its airspace. That prompted Israel to respond by sending two surface-to-air missiles to intercept the plane, marking this as the first time since 2014 that Israel brought down a Syrian warplane.
The jet crashed on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights — a disputed piece of territory between Israel and Syria — and reports say the pilot, Col. Omran Mari, may have died.
Before the flight, Israel observed increased activity on Syria’s side of the border, including a lot of movement from the Syrian Air Force. That put Israel on alert, and its military observed the Syrian plane throughout its flight.”*
