“Israeli warplanes struck a Syrian anti-aircraft battery after coming under fire during a reconnaissance mission in Lebanese airspace, the Israeli military said Monday. No Israeli aircraft were hit by the anti-aircraft fire. Israel said the fire hailed from Syrian government-controlled SA-5 battery located about 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Damascus. Two hours after, a separate aircraft ‘incapacitated’ the Syrian anti-aircraft position, Israeli army spokesman Jonathan Conricus said.” (10/16/17)
