CAIRO, September 13. /TASS/. Syria’s army claimed they shot down an Israeli warplane and a drone after Israel’s attack on the Syrian army positions in Quneitra, the SANA news agency reported on Tuesday.
"This blatant aggression comes a part of Israel's support for terrorist groups and its attempt to raise their crushed morals after their miserable failure and huge losses in the Quneitra province," the Syrian army said, according to SANA.
The town of Quneitra is located approximately 40 km from the Syrian border.
The Israeli Defense Forces denied any of its aircraft was shot down by the Syrian attack.
