Syrian state media: Israel targeted Syrian war plane in Syrian airspace

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Israel targeted a Syrian warplane while it was conducting raids in Syrian airspace, Syrian news agency SANA said on Tuesday.

It did not say whether the plane had been hit.

“The Israeli enemy confirms its support for the armed terrorist groups and targets one of our warplanes, which was striking their groups in the area of Saida on the edge of the Yarmouk Valley in Syrian airspace,” it quoted a military source as saying.
