DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:15 A.M.) – Around midnight, anti-aircraft units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shot down an armed Israeli drone which had conducted numerous sorties in Quneitra province, leading to the death of three SAA soldiers on Friday evening.
The SAA troops were hit by the hostile drone while advancing behind enemy lines near the road between Al-Hamdiyah and Abu Shabta, prompting the Syrian Air Defense Force to open fire and down the Israeli drone over rebel-held territory.
Neither Tel Aviv or Damascus has responded to the mutual aggression yet. Nevertheless, the two countries remain at a state of war since the Israeli Armed Forces occupied much of the Golan Heights over five decades ago
UPDATE: The SAA did open fire on the drone but it was not downed and managed to fly back into Israel. The three soldiers were killed on the spot, sources confirm. Al-Masdar News would like to apologize for the initial incorrect reporting.
