Israeli jets on Saturday were targeted by the Syrian Army with anti-aircraft missiles.

An Israeli F-16 went down in northern Israel amid the fire, but the jet's pilots ejected safely, according to the IDF.

The pilots were transferred to Rambam hospital by helicopter. Their condition is not yet known.

"IDF has targeted the Iranian control systems in Syria that sent the #UAV into Israeli airspace. Massive Syrian Anti-Air fire, one F16 crashed in Israel, pilots safe," Conricus also said on Twitter.


Air raid sirens were activated in the Golan Heights and Beit She’an due to the Syrians activating their anti-aircraft artillery. No casualties were reported.
