Russian Federation summons Israeli envoy following IDF strikes in Syria

Israel has threatened to "destroy" Syrian air defence systems "without the slightest hesitation" after Bashar al-Assad's army fired missiles at jets carrying out airstrikes.

David's Sling, created to shoot down rockets fired from 100 to 200 kilometres away, will be the final piece of a shield that already includes short-range Iron Dome and long-range Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 missiles.

No Israelis were hurt during the strikes Thursday night or from the anti-aircraft fire, the first time that Israel has used the Arrow anti-missile system.

The official said the missile was identified as a ballistic threat and had a heavy warhead that could have landed inside Israel if not intercepted.

Then, on the evening of Sunday-Monday, Israel launched yet another attack into Syria - the third in three days, and the second in 24 hours.

The Israeli military denied that any planes had been hit. Without this support, the State would not have been able to move forward to fight extremism and intervention from overseas, the Syrian president stressed in the dialogue with the Russian-European Parliamentary delegation led by Vladimir Vasiliev, vice-president of the Council of the Russian State Duma.

Syria's ambassador to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, on Sunday insisted the Syrian response was "in line with Israel's terrorist operation" and had "changed the rules of the game". Others claimed that he was a civilian.

But Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman says forces loyal to Syrian dictator Assad fired missiles at some of their jets during the raids.

What do you think of Israel's strikes inside Syria?

Israel has held the Syrian regime responsible for arms transfers to Hezbollah, and has sworn to act to intercept them.

The David's Sling gives the Israel Defense Forces "more capabilities and more effectiveness", he says, "but it's never enough".

Nasrallah, however, said that Israel has been using "all kinds of excuses" throughout the war to intervene, and that what they are really afraid of is an ISIS defeat, because that would mean a Hezbollah victory. Should Israel be allowed to intervene to prevent Hezbollah from being armed?
