    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Syrian Army command said in a statement Friday it had downed one of four Israeli Air Force jets that violated its airspace and purportedly targeted Syrian units near Palmyra.

    "Yes, we asked him about this," Bogdanov told journalists.

    The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) told Sputnik that its aircraft was not shot down.

      mzungu in Africa,
      yes wheels within wheels, and look how they set Africa up!
      Anyway Russia should blast all terrorists invaders off the map.
      In the UN and EU everybody is in charge but in reality "nobody is in charge".
      Israel will have to give back all the stolen lands.
      Same applies to African invaders..

      S-400, I think you are not looking at the bigger picture here. What you should be thinking about is this: If Israel gets annihilated, then who will be the next target? Iran will not simply rest once it has annihilalted Israel.

      terryjohnodgers, I am quite surprised at your ignorance! Haven't you heard of the occupied lands: the Sinai, the Gaza Strip, the Golan heights and the West Jordan lands. And we know that in the Gaza, the Palestinians are kept like kettle, and the West Jordan land is being filled up with settlements despite all the moratoriums. The Palestinians have ever fewer rights: they can't vote, they can't have an education, their lands are divided by walls and checkpoints. This war is going on, unnoticed, while the rest of the world is looking at Iraq and Syria.
      By the way, stolen land is stolen land, whether it's Whites stealing Australia from the Aborigines Zionist, or whoever, race and religion doesn't make wrong right!

      terryjohnodgers,
      Today they invade Syria, murder and greed.Always Israel that have broke every rule of law, and decency.
      Israel is stolen land, because it is Palestine(all of it). Check the older 1940 map!.
      Mother Gorrilla explains the tale of perpetual murder an theft below.Trust me she knows!

      terryjohnodgers, terryjohnodgers, for a map of pre-1948 Palestine, see: yandex.ru/images/search?text=map+of+1940+Palestine

      And Blackie is right, Africa was stolen as well, see: www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=Krtzh0sq&id=D1D0A3A2DD5ED5C1FF26A1F3EAE19A3CCF

      so was America: yandex.ru/images/search?img_url=http%3A%2F%2Fcastle.eiu.edu%2F~wow%2Fclasses%2Ffa07%2Fblackhawkindia

      And Mother Gorilla is right about Australia and New Zealand, taken from the indigenous people.

      Israel is a fictional place, there never was such a place, and even the name is inaccurate, because it dates from a period where there was no promised land. Israel is a product of Zionist nationalism, Ziofascism!!!

      The IDF told Sputnik that the jet was not shot down but Bogdanov told Koren he knew all about it. Russia is not blind and the israeli know this. Russia is not going to miss an IDF jet getting blown out of the air they control. The Russians just told the israeli keep your aircraft out of Syria or you risk losing them and they will not do jack about it. He might even have said keep em out or we will embarrass israel with hard and fast proof they had their butt kicked that day.

      Mother Gorilla, all those 'lands' you mention were won in battle like most of history shows but according to you only Israel is not permitted to claim the land it has won?

      "The Palestinians have ever fewer rights;' Israel does not occupy the West bank which is so called 'Palestinian' land, so how come they are losing their rights according to you and what has Israel got to do with their rights?

      '....whether its whites stealing Australia from the Aborigines.......' There was no Australia in 1788 only a land mass inhabited by various tribes whose main interest in life was killing one another. One cannot steal land from a people who have no will in keeping it or even in defending it!

      Is it because I am black?, you expect me to believe that? Why don't you get yourself a real history lesson?

      terryjohnodgers, no one prevents you from going to college and studying history instead of messing up the Sputnik boards with your ignorance of Near Eastern, African, American and world history!!
      If I were you, I should throw in a little law. Stealing from unprepared people is alright (you in your comment to Mother Gorilla), what nonsense is that!
    • Mother Gorillain reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
      terryjohnodgers, and because these lands (Palestinian lands by the way) were won in battle, by way of violence and bloodshed, that makes it alright? Because Africans and Australian aborigines are less civilized, it is alright to disown and enslave them? And here I thought we were living in the 21th century!
      With people like you, the Nazis would have had an easier time in Nurremberg, there'd be be no Anti-Bush and no Anti-Trump rallies! Aggression is king, it's pure Hobbes, the war of all against all!
      The six day war, by the way, was started preemptively by the Israelis, does it mean then that you would have no problem with a preemptive nuclear strike either, one that would annihilate the world entirely, you included?

      Mother Gorilla,
      Well explained, but know this Aborigines up until the mid 1960 period were not able to drink in a pub, plus a White English man told me Aborigines were only classed as "Fauna and Flora".
      Recently Israel made a law to just take land as with them it is legal.

      Blackie, Israel has been in existence for over 3500 years. Where do you think the Temple of Solomon was built?

      Is it because I am black?, going on your own logic then, all the lands of this world were colonized at some time so we should now return them back to their original owners, you mean we have to dig them up to do that?
    • Blackiein reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
      terryjohnodgers,
      There was no Israel on the map 3.500 years back, and by the way the dead sea scrolls are fake.
      They actually wanted israel in Berlin at one point, not only that they banged on about six million in the 19 century.
      Usury, murder land theft, and war is bad.
      As Putin said "these stories were from long ago and not relevant" meaning they should act honestly, and stop wars.Ask Mel Gibson...

      Blackie, When the Romans invaded Israel back in 50 BC they began calling the lands of Judea and Samaria (remember the parable of the good Samaritian?) Philistia or Palestine.

      Mel Gibson has been assisting Holocaust survivors and their programs for over a decade - you should catch up!

      Blackie, the aborigines at that time drank in their own pubs and the whites drank in theirs. Aborigines have been citizens of this country since 1948 when all the inhabitants of Australia became citizens as apart from British Subjects.

      On that Englshman - you should not believe everything you hear or wish to believe.

      Mother Gorilla, you can call me anything you like, I don't care because my knowledge of history is far more comprehensive than yours!

      If you ever visit Australia the first thing you will notice is that Aborigines receive more welfare and benefits than white Australians. All Aborigines are Australian citizens - they are not enslaved!

      Israel was up against three Arab countries who were about to attack them, yes, good on them for that preemptive strike because it saved Israel.

      If Israel is destroyed it will be by Iran. If that happens than the whole world is danger because the next target of Iran will be the United States. Think about that for a moment!
