Israel blamed the incident on Syrian recklessness, while the Russian embassy in Israel said the Air Force's actions were "irresponsible and unfriendly" and exposed the downed plane to danger.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin will not meet with Israeli Air Force Commander, Major General Amikam Norkin, who is in Moscow to deliver information on the downing of a Russian military aircraft in Syria, the Kremlin has said.

An Israeli military delegation travelled to Moscow on Thursday to express sorrow over the deaths and to share information on the incident with their Russian counterparts. "The IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) will continue to implement our strategic interests", the official said.
It added that Israeli planes were already in Israeli airspace when Syria fired the missiles that hit the Russian plane.
In its report, the IDF said Syria unleashed a "rampage" of anti-aircraft fire in all directions during the Israeli assault, according to Ynet, which cited a copy of the 40-page document.
It also risked harming relations between Israel and Russian Federation, which established a hotline three years ago to avoid accidental clashes in Syria, but the leaders of both countries have since sought to move past the incident.
An Israeli military statement said that the delegation presented maps, documents and a presentation showing a step-by-step breakdown of the incident.
There was no comment from the Russian side about the meeting. It accused the Israeli military of deliberately using the Russian plane as a cover to dodge Syrian defenses and threatened to retaliate.
