IAF Brigadier General Tomer Bar, who is the second-in-command of the Israeli Air Force, said that the Syrians have "some nerve" to fire on an Israeli jet.


Syrian media reported that the missiles used against the Israeli jet were Soviet-made NPO Almaz S-200 surface-to-air missiles used by the Syrian army since the 1980's.
