  1. The Israeli jet was in Israeli airspace ...... have Isreli jets fired into Syria from Israeli airspace in the past? "Routine flight", ... what does that mean? I thought Israeli was just carrying out missions on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria. And who's the source of this news?

    Hmmm, this raises more questions than it answers.
