Israel attacks Syria

Waking up to some potentially serious breaking news. Israeli warplanes are attacking Syria and have attacked Iranian targets. One Israeli plane is reported to have been shot down.

Sky and BBC reporting this...

Israel saying they were responding to an Iranian drone coming into contact with an Israeli helicopter. It's not clear whether this occurred over Israeli airspace. Presumably it did leading to the Israeli response.

Nothing really serious about it to be honest. They attack Syria quite regularly. The plane came down in Israel with the pilots ejected before it crashed.

If it was shot down, probably the first IDF jet lost in a good while. Probably for the best that the pilots were over Israeli territory when they ejected.

Bibi Netanyahu would probably enjoy a distraction, Syria might offer him one.

Pretty regular occurrence at this stage ,the only new suprise is the loss of an Israeli aircraft as pointed out above is the first in a long time ,
What comes next is the great unknown,

I'd expect a large scale assault taking out any and all anti air batteries belonging to Assad and Iran at some stage

They've been doing this frequently for the last several years.

You should go back to sleep before you find out that the Falklands were invaded in 82.

All war is serious. And lets us not forget Russian forces are inside Syria now and Isreal could easily kill Russians by mistake. The plane was shot down while under fire. Isreal is playing a dangerous game. You don't see Iran and Syria sending fighter jets into Isreal to attack targets.
