Ynetnews reports: Israel has carried out attacks in Syria since the accidental shooting down of a Russian surveillance plane last month, a senior Israeli official said on Monday.

The September 17 downing by Syrian anti-aircraft fire, after Israeli Air Force (IAF) jets attacked a suspected Iranian arms shipment to Syria, caused a diplomatic rift between Israel and Russia, and Moscow blamed Israel for the incident.

The official did not give details of the nature of Israel’s actions since the shooting down of the IL-20 aircraft near Latakia in which the crew of 15 were killed, or the number of times it had attacked. “The IDF have attacked in Syria, including after the downing of the Russian plane.
