According to a Western diplomat in Damascus, IAF planes which had allegedly infiltrated into Syrian airspace overnight were most likely positioned in the area to take photographs, Israel Radio reported. After Syrian Aerial Defense systems identified the planes, the pilots were forced to cast away bombs and fuel tanks out of the planes. The IDF spokesperson declined to comment, saying that the army does not respond "to such reports."
