The only other time since 1985 that Israel has shot down a Russian-made Syrian jet was in 2014, when it shot down a Sukhoi-24 over the Golan Heights, using the same missile battery as on Tuesday.

Israel says the Su-22 entered their airspace, and that it amounted to a violation of the 1974 Golan ceasefire. We will not accept any such penetration of, or spillover into, our territory, neither on the ground nor in the air.
