The summons, made on Friday, was confirmed by Russia's foreign ministry which said the Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren, had been asked to explain an exchange of fire with Syrian government forces in which anti-aircraft missiles were fired at Israeli jets. Earlier on Monday, media reported that Koren was summoned for a second time. -Israeli missile interceptor will be operational soon, completing Israel's multi-layer defense system, a senior Israeli air force official said Monday.

Syria's military said it had downed one of the Israeli planes and hit another as they were carrying out the pre-dawn strikes near the famed desert city of Palmyra that it recaptured from jihadists this month. It marked the first time Israel had used the Arrow missile, which has been jointly developed with the US over years to defend against long-range missiles from Iran.

The Israeli analysts pointed out that Syria President Bashar Assad is directly supported by Hezbollah, Iran and Russian Federation and feels that he can intensify the confrontation with the Zionist entity.

It was the most serious incident between the two countries since the Syrian civil war began six years ago.

"Next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it", Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli Public Radio on Sunday.

Since Russia's entry into the war, Israel and Moscow have come up with an understanding mechanism to avoid clashes between their militaries.
