United Nations officials, Church leaders decry escalating situation in Syria

Russia's statement urging "all sides to exercise restraint" indicated that it was not supportive of Iran's provocations that might put the Kremlin's "project" of saving the Assad regime at risk.

The downing by Syria of the Israeli jet worked to deflate that narrative, particularly since it was only the first time Syria was actively confronting intruding Israeli aircraft.

In subsequent attacks, Israel struck four additional Iranian positions and eight Syrian sites in Syria. The relations are further strained as three of Israel's enemies operate in the Syrian theater: the government itself, Hezbollah and Iran.

Iran and Russian Federation have repeatedly called the worldwide community to pay respect to the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria which both have been undermined by interventions from Saudi Arabia, US, Zionist regime, and some other countries which opposed Assad's alignment with Iran. Conricus said the Israeli jets faced between 15 to 20 anti-aircraft missiles fired by SA-5 and SA-17 batteries. Syrian anti-air systems retaliated, striking an Israeli F-16, which crashed after making it back to Israeli territory. Moscow has no interest in a full-scale confrontation between Syria, Iran, and Israel, as such a conflict would endanger recent achievements in Syria. In the last few weeks, the proxy conflicts between Israel and Iran and Turkey and the Kurds have heated up in particular.

A flood of Israeli trash talk against Iran also followed. The foreign meddlers funded the terrorists in Syria to topple the Syrian government.

Syria says its defenses have responded to an Israeli raid on one of its military bases in the country's center, calling it a "new aggression".

"The nation is also more determined than ever to support the Islamic establishment in order to strengthen the country's defense and missile power", said Ahmad Vahidi, president of the Supreme National Defense University of Iran, according to the Tehran Times.

"The fact that a drone like this is identified, tracked and intercepted so smoothly by the Israeli air force demonstrates our capabilities, demonstrates our resolve not to allow the breach of Israeli sovereignty", he said.

"I think that this incident is likely to be contained", he said.

According to Liberman, while Israel wants to live quietly the turbulent reality of the Middle East makes the word "peace irrelevant", the only way to live here quietly is to prepare for war. The Shia allies have sent forces to back Assad, who appears headed toward victory after years of fighting. Bloomberg is reporting that as many as 200 Russian contract soldiers fighting for the Syrian army were killed last week in an attack on a base held by US and Kurdish forces in the Deir Ezzor region.

Why did Israel bomb targets in Syria?

In January, a USA -led coalition unveiled a plan to set up a new border force of 30,000 Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria, raising alarms in the region that the White House may be helping to cement an autonomous Kurdish enclave that could further divide the country. "The United Kingdom is concerned at developments over Israel's border with Syria this weekend". The Iranians are intent on establishing military infrastructure-to include permanent bases, airfields, and naval bases, manned mainly by proxies (militias) that are already established in Syria and receive IRGC support, such as Hezbollah. The military confirmed that the initial target in Syria - the unmanned aircraft's launch components - was successfully destroyed.
