Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Israeli forces would press ahead with Syria operations despite their loss of an advanced warplane to enemy fire for the first time in 36 years.
Israel struck targets deep in Syria and shot down an infiltrating Iranian drone, marking its most serious engagement in neighboring Syria since fighting there began in 2011
Israel has struck what it referred to as Iranian targets inside Syria in "large-scale" raids.
The events appeared to be Israel’s first direct engagement with Iranian forces in Syrian territory.
Israel said it had launched a major attack after its F-16 came under Syrian fire.
The operations come after an Israeli warplane crashed under fire from Syrian air defenses.
