    today an Israeli F-16 was shot down after being sent to strike Iranian sites that were responsible for launching a drone into the Golan Heights. The Syrian Command confirmed it launched an updated S-125 to shoot it down. some officials believe it will cause a "new phase" in the Syrian Civil War. This also comes after Israel launched an air-raid near Damascus which was rumored were Assad kept chemical weapons and most likely creating more.

    Golan Heights is an internationally recognised territory of Syria.
    Syria and Israil are still in the state of continues war.
    Israil and Iran are not in the state of war.
    Syria and Iran are allies, and Syria can allow to Iran to use their drones over all her territory, including Golan Heights.
    Also, Syria have right to shoot down any Jewish jets, they can lock on, or even attack Israil with seriouse forces.
    Actially I very doubt, that there will be escalation right now, at least because State of Israil are good enough (yet) in protection of Russian interests at the Middle East.

    I do agree Syria has a right to protect itself considering Turkey is a very big helper towards the FSA. What I am mentioning has happened and Israel will take this matter into effect very quickly, considering they apparently already done 4 airstrikes on an airport near Damascus.
    Russia's interest in Syria, Russia needs to continue the weaponry aid to Syria and actually pick up the heat it seems Russia does not care what Israel or Turkey does there. In Idlib both Turkey and Russia agreed if you give us Idlib you can have Afrin, well Turkey isn't handing Idlib over, but instead sending in more armored vehicles, artillery and more weaponry aid to help support the Idlib FSA
