A Syrian fighter jet was shot down over Syria by an Israeli SPYDER air defense system.
It has been reported that the Syrian Air Force Su-22 fighter was destroyed over the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic by an Israeli anti-aircraft missile system. The fighter’s crew was killed, and judging by the video footage presented, neither the crew nor the aircraft itself had a single chance.
An anti-aircraft guided missile successfully hit the aircraft, leaving a strip of fire in the sky, when the fighter threatens the neighboring state.
The aircraft was shot down from a relatively short distance from Israeli airspace, and a medium-range air defense system could have been used for this.
To date, this is far from the first aggression of a neighboring country against Syria, and judging by the fact that the situation has not changed at all even with the appearance of the S-300 systems in service with the Syrian Army, this loss could be far from the Syrian Air Force, not the last.
