Israeli delegation in Moscow to share data on plane downing

Russian President Vladimir Putin was not angry with Syrian President Bashar Assad over the Ilyushin-20 incident and for this reason refused to answer his phone calls, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said to dismiss rumors in the Israeli media.

"We proved how the Syrian reckless anti-air fire was the direct cause of hitting the Russian aircraft".

Her comments came after an Israeli delegation led by Amikam Norkin, the regime's air force commander, traveled to Moscow on Thursday with information about the crash.

The Israeli military also noted that its delegation "presented the ongoing Iranian attempts to establish its military presence in Syria and to transfer strategic weapons to the Hezbollah terror organization".

A report on Lebanese TV station Al Mayadeen, which is close to the Syrian government and Hezbollah, said that Russian Federation "rejected" the Israeli presentation.

Israel has vowed to stop its arch-foe Iran, which backs the Assad regime, from entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria. The incident threatened to derail the close security ties between Russian Federation and Israel. It accused the Israeli military of deliberately using the Russian plane as a cover to dodge Syrian defenses and threatened to retaliate. Putin held a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

It will be used to examine its safety, tolerability and effectiveness for treatment of Essential Tremor (ET ) in adults. Getting the approval was a months-long process and required an OK from the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S.

In a highly unusual move, the IDF acknowledged the strike and released some of the findings of its initial investigation, which found that the Syrian air defense units fired "indiscriminately" and "did not bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air". "Putin later said that the loss of the Russian plane resulted from a string of tragic circumstances".

Israeli officials, fearful of losing the close defense cooperation with the Russians that have allowed the IDF to operate over Syria against Iranian and Iran-linked forces, launched a full diplomatic push.

Israel has provided Moscow with proof it bore no responsibility for bringing down a Russian plane in Syria, an Israeli military official said on Friday.

"Moscow views as irresponsible and unfriendly actions of Israeli Air Force, which exposed Russian Il-20 aircraft to danger and led to death of 15 servicemen", the Russian embassy said in a tweet.

The Israeli official said the meeting in Moscow was an opportunity to improve the mechanism the countries have been using to avoid unintended confrontations.

It also said "new information" on the incident would "emerge soon", without elaborating.
