Throughout Syria's war, Israel has regularly attacked Syrian military targets, particularly in the country's south.

In general, Israel's operation in Syria consist of bombing sites that are used to develop, store and transport advanced weaponry to the Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist group.

The incident began when Israeli reconnaissance craft flew over Lebanese air space near the Syrian border within range of the anti-aircraft installation. One of planes was shot and had to leave airspace, " statements were included.

According to Conricus, the Russians were notified of the Israeli airstrike on the SA-5 battery "in real-time".

In January, the Israel Air Force received its first Arrow 3 interceptor, the most advanced Arrow system which is created to provide ultimate air defense by intercepting ballistic missiles when they are still outside the Earth's atmosphere. In this respect, Israel has regularly conducted air strikes in both Lebanon and Syria to prevent the transfer of advanced weaponry to Tehran's Shiite proxy Hizbullah and has thus developed with Russian Federation a de-confliction mechanism to avoid any unwanted direct confrontation.

Sergei Shoigu also set out a hope that the talks would strengthen friendly ties between the armed forces of Russian Federation and Israel.
