Russia Summons Israeli Ambassador Over Airstrikes Near Palmyra
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Moscow summoned Israeli Ambassador to Russia Gary Koren to inquire about airstrikes on Syrian troops near Palmyra, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said Monday.
The Syrian Army command said in a statement Friday it had downed one of four Israeli Air Force jets that violated its airspace and purportedly targeted Syrian units near Palmyra.
"Yes, we asked him about this," Bogdanov told journalists.
The Israeli military told Sputnik that its aircraft was not shot down.
