Israeli aircraft unscathed in overnight operation over Syria - Israeli military

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Israeli military said on Friday none of its aircraft were damaged in an overnight operation in Syria, after the Syrian army said it had shot down an Israeli jet.

Israel confirmed earlier on Friday that anti-aircraft missiles targeted its aircraft while on a mission in Syria.

“At no point was the safety of Israeli civilians or the IAF (Israeli Air Force) aircraft compromised,” an Israeli military spokesman said.
