Putin demands Israel examine loss of Russian plane during Syria raid

Il-20 aircraft

But the Israeli official said the delegation had "provided proof" to the Russians that their plane had been shot down because the Syrian batteries had "fired recklessly, irresponsibly and unprofessionally, long after our planes were no longer there".

Katz said that Assad has blamed Israel's "bravado" and "lack of restraint" for Syria shooting down the Russian Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft and its 15 crew members.

The incident on Monday was the worst case of friendly fire between Moscow and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime since Russian forces intervened in the conflict in 2015.

Katz also said that Israel was not going to change its policy following the incident but was working with Russian Federation to calm the crisis.

The Israeli military has said its fighter jets were targeting a Syrian military facility involved in providing weapons for Iran's proxy Hezbollah militia and insisted it warned Russian Federation of the coming raid in accordance with deconfliction agreements. It said the Syrian army fired the missiles that hit the Russian plane when the Israeli jets had already returned to Israeli airspace.

Initially the incident appeared likely to cause friction between Israel and Russian Federation, with the Defence Ministry in Moscow accusing Israel of indirectly causing it.

The Russian military accused Israeli pilots of using "the Russian plane as a cover, exposing it to fire from Syrian air defences", saying they reserved the right to respond.

Deputy Speaker of the Knesset MK Tali Ploskov (Kulanu) met with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a Conference of Euro-Asian Women, which included some of Euro-Asia's female leaders.

"The meetings were held in good spirits and the representatives shared a professional, open and transparent discussion on various issues", the Israeli military said.

There was no other comment from Moscow on the meetings, but earlier the Russian foreign ministry demanded "further inquiries and explanations from Israel" about the downing of the plane, according to the Russian Interfax agency.

But the Israeli official said: "We definitely gave a warning, a time much longer than one minute".

Israel regularly carries out strikes in war-torn Syria against the Syrian government, its Lebanese ally Hezbollah and Iranian targets.

Israeli Air Force chief Amikam Norkin, center-right, meets with Russian officials in Moscow on September 20, 2018. "The IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) will continue to implement our strategic interests", the official said.

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