Russia’s Su-35s have intercepted Israeli F-16 fighter jets over the Damascus sky, trying to trick the Syrian anti-aircraft system S-300,Eurasia Diary reports citing news agency AviaPro and local sources

At least two Israeli combat aircraft tried to trick the S-300 air defense systems by entering into Syrian airspace from Jordan, however, Israeli fighters were trapped - Russian Su-35s were immediately sent to meet them, which forced the Israeli air force to retreat.

As follows from the information provided by the Twitter account of Syrian MC, Russian fighters were located over the southern part of Syria, which, presumably, indicates the interception of Israeli military aircraft. Moreover, the information on this subject is also confirmed by the Twitter account Sentry Syria, which monitors the situation in the sky over Syria.

It should be clarified that there are no official comments on this issue from Syria and Russia, however, during an interview with reporters yesterday, Netanyahu unexpectedly refused to comment on Israeli attacks on Syrian territory, apparently fearing that unpleasant facts could emerge.
