JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel’s military denied on Tuesday a report on Syrian state media that an Israeli warplane and a drone were shot down after an Israeli attack on a Syrian army position.
“Overnight two surface-to-air missiles were launched from Syria after the mission to target Syrian artillery positions. At no point was the safety of (Israeli) aircraft compromised,” the Israeli military said in a statement.
