Hezbollah leader boasts group has 'highly accurate' missiles

Putin said it was the result of Putin said it was the result of"tragic accidental circumstances Vladimir Putin

Putin told Netanyahu that the Israeli raid violated Syria's sovereignty and breached the Russian-Israeli de-confliction agreement.

In recent months, Israel has acknowledged carrying out scores of strikes in Syria, a lot of them believed aimed at halting suspected arms shipments for Hezbollah from Iran, its main backer and Israel's archenemy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks to the media during a joint news conference with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban after their talks in the Kremlin in Moscow, Sept. 18, 2018.

The Russian military claimed that Israeli pilots had attacked Syrian targets by using "the Russian plane as a cover, exposing it to fire from Syrian air defences".

Israel dispatched its air force chief to brief Moscow about the incident on Thursday. Fifteen Russian servicemen were killed during the incident, but officials in Moscow and Tel Aviv moved quickly to defuse tensions even though the Russian Ministry of Defense initially responded with fury against the Israelis.

Israel said on Thursday it would not halt strikes on Syria but would do more to "deconflict" them with Russian forces. Prime Minister Netanyahu has visited Putin in Moscow nine times since 2015, mostly to ensure Russia's tacit approval of Israeli strikes in Syria, where Russian Federation maintains a sizable troop presence and influence.

Israel, which in 2006 fought a war with Hezbollah, has conducted air strikes in Syria aimed at stopping Iran supplying its ally with advanced weaponry.

Mr Lieberman also said that Israel would fully co-operate with a Russian investigation into the downing of its plane, adding: "We have nothing to hide".

There was no immediate word from Damascus, but the deadly air war sequence started when Israeli missiles struck the coastal region of Latakia on Monday.

Konashenkov insisted the Israelis "could not but see the Russian plane, which was approaching the runway from an altitude of (3 miles)".

Nasrallah also commended the outcome of a summit on Idlib hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and attended by his Turkish and Russian counterparts earlier this month in Tehran.

Moscow has played a delicate diplomatic game of maintaining friendly ties with both Israel and Iran. Israel expressed sorrow for the deaths, but said responsibility for them lay with the Syrian military, as well as with Iran and Hezbollah.

The attack on Latakia came within hours of the announcement Monday by Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of an agreement reached in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi to establish a jointly patrolled "demilitarized zone" between Syrian government troops and the Western-backed "rebels" concentrated in Syria's northwestern Idlib province.
