19 March, 2017, 01:19 | Author: Essie Rivera
Throughout Syria's Civil War, Israeli warplanes have launched pretty regular attacks on military targets.
The Syrian army recaptured Palmyra from IS on March 2, three months after losing it to the jihadists for a second time. Syria responded by firing several missiles at the aircraft - one of which was intercepted by Israel's air defense systems.
Officials in Jerusalem have repeatedly said that Israel will take action to stop the transfer of advanced weapons to terror groups and over a dozen strikes inside Syria have been attributed to Israel.
The missiles triggered Israel's emergency sirens, which may have forced the army to issue a rare communique confirming the skirmish. "Several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria following the mission and IDF (Israel Defence Force) Aerial Defence Systems intercepted one of the missiles", the military said in itsstatement.
While Israel has long avoided getting involved in the war in Syria, its jets have been striking targets in the region since at least 2013, when US officials told CNN they believed IDF jets had struck targets inside Syrian territory.
The pan-Arab Al-Mayadeen TV, which has good sources within the militant group, dismissed reports by other Arab media outlets that a Hezbollah commander, Badee Hamiyeh, was killed in one of the airstrikes.

"Overnight... aircraft targeted several targets in Syria", an Israeli army statement said in an unusual confirmation by the Jewish state of air raids inside the war-torn country.

When Russia redeployed to Syria in 2015, taking advantage of the Obama administration's tepid response to the fighting there, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a quick trip to Moscow to talk with President Putin.
The Israeli army denied that any planes had been hit.
The Israeli military would not comment on the type of system used.
