“IDF (Israel Defence Force) has targeted the Iranian control systems in Syria that sent the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) into Israeli airspace.

Massive Syrian anti-air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe,” Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant Jonathan Conricus wrote on Twitter. According to a separate military statement, Israeli forces had identified an “Iranian UAV” launched from Syria and intercepted it in Israeli airspace with a combat helicopter. Police said the F16 crashed in the Jezreel valley in northern Israel. “Iran is responsible for this severe violation of Israeli sovereignty,” Conricus said on Twitter.
