Earlier, the SA-5 anti-aircraft battery, located about 30 miles east of Damascus fired at Israeli planes conducting "routine" reconnaissance over Lebanon.
The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed that Israeli Air Force fighters conducted a missile strike against a Syrian base after a missile was sacked at Israeli jets on a routine aerial reconnaissance mission in Lebanese airspace, Russia's news agency Sputnik reports. "Today, they tried to hit our aircraft - we will not accept this", Netanyahu said in a statement. But it was preceded by at least three similar cases over the last two years in which Syria fired anti-aircraft missiles at Israeli planes.
