Israel caused serious harm to Syria’s air defenses, says IAF second-in-command-Downed Iranian drone quite sophisticated, emulates Western technology, according to Brig. Gen. Tomer Bar; Netanyahu, Liberman, IDF chief convene for emergency consultations-By TOI staff and Agencies-FEB 11,18

Israel inflicted serious harm to Syria’s air defenses, said IAF Air Staff Commander Brig. Gen. Tomer Bar on Saturday, after the IDF launched a number of airstrikes on Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria, following the interception on Saturday morning of an unmanned Iranian drone in Israeli airspace.Bar, the Israeli Air Force’s second-in-command, said the response was “the biggest and most significant attack the air force has conducted against Syrian air defenses since Operation Peace for the Galilee” in 1982 during the First Lebanon War.Syria’s responding anti-aircraft fire led to the downing of an Israeli fighter plane in which two pilots were injured, one seriously and another lightly. Both were being treated at Rambam Hospital in Haifa.Israel said the drone infiltration was a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty,” and warned of further action against unprecedented Iranian aggression.Bar said the Iranian drone remained in Israel’s airspace for a minute and a half before being taken out by a combat helicopter over the city of Beit Shean, near the Jordanian border. He added that the drone was quite advanced and emulated Western technology.Bar said Israel would study the drone.After the UAV was intercepted, Israel targeted at least 12 other sites “including three aerial defense batteries and four Iranian targets that are part of Iran’s military establishment in Syria,” according to a military statement.The Israeli military said its planes faced massive anti-aircraft fire from Syria that forced the two pilots to abandon an F-16 jet that crashed in northern Israel. Bar said the pilots did not report being hit but carried out ejection procedures.“We are verifying what caused the pilots’ injuries,” Bar said, “whether from an anti-aircraft missile or from ejecting. It’s not clear whether the missile hit the plane but we are assuming it did.”If the plane was in fact shot down by enemy fire, it could mark the first such instance for Israel since 1982 during the first Lebanon war.The events marked a dramatic escalation in tensions along Israel’s northern border, and were part of the most serious confrontation between Israel and Iran since the start of the civil war in Syria in March 2011.Bar described the incident as “Syrian chutzpah,” and said Israel responded accordingly, adding that the airstrikes inflicted “significant harm to the Syrian Air Force’s defenses” which included “anti-aircraft batteries purchased in recent deals [with the Russians].”Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus warned that Syria and Iran were “playing with fire,” but stressed his country was not seeking an escalation. “This is the most blatant and severe Iranian violation of Israeli sovereignty in the last years,” Conricus told journalists in a phone conference.He did not say whether the drone was armed or for reconnaissance, but alleged it “was on a military mission sent by Iranian military forces” from an “Iranian base” in the Palmyra area.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and IDF Chief-of-Staff Gadi Eizenkot were convening with top brass at military headquarters in Tel Aviv for emergency consultations on Saturday to discuss a possible further response.The IDF released video footage early Saturday afternoon of the drone’s destruction over Israeli territory as well as the subsequent IDF strike on its Iranian command vehicle in Syria.‪An Iranian UAV crossed into Israeli territory and was intercepted by an attack helicopter‬-Posted by Israel Defense Forces on Saturday, 10 February 2018-Meanwhile, Iran and Syria said Israeli allegations that an Iranian drone infiltrated Israeli airspace were lies.A spokesman for Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said the Syrian response was “a clear warning to Israel. The era of Israeli strikes on Syria is over.” He vowed a “relentless response” to “all further aggression.”A Syrian statement said Israeli jets targeted a drone base in central Syria whose mission is to gather intelligence on IS in the area. It said the station was hit while drones were on regular missions in the country’s desert in Homs province. The statement said it was “a lie and misleading” to say the drone had entered Israel’s airspace.In its airstrikes, Israel hit four Iranian positions and eight Syrian sites in Syria. Conricus said the Israeli jets faced between 15 to 20 anti-aircraft missiles fired by SA-5 and SA-17 batteries. All the Israeli jets in those sorties returned home safely.Israel has taken great care to coordinate all its actions in the area with Russia, which backs Syrian President Bashar Assad and maintains a large military presence in the country.But Russia’s foreign ministry expressed concern over Saturday’s strike and called for restraint.“We consider it necessary to unconditionally respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and other countries of the region,” it said in a statement. “It is absolutely unacceptable to create threats to the lives and security of Russian servicemen who are in Syria at the invitation of its legitimate government to assist in the fight against terrorists.”The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war in Syria, said Israel targeted the edges of a military air base, called T-4, in the Homs desert near Palmyra, where Iranian and Hezbollah forces are based alongside Syrian troops. The Observatory said the raids resulted in casualties, but didn’t specify. It also said Israeli raids targeted areas in southwestern Damascus, bordering the southern provinces. This was followed by raids on Syrian government posts along the Damascus-Beirut road, close to the border between Syria and Lebanon.

After northern clashes, Israel calls on UN to ‘end Iranian provocations’-Israeli envoy to UN, Danny Danon, says Security Council cannot 'stand idly by while Iran is instigating dangerous escalations and violating resolutions'-By TOI staff and AP-FEB 11,18

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, called on the Security Council on Saturday to end “Iranian provocations” hours after Israel shot down a sophisticated Iranian drone that had breached Israeli airspace, and targeted a dozen Syrian and Iranian military sites in Syria in response before an Israeli F-16 jet was downed, injuring two pilots.The incident marks the most significant confrontation between Israel and Syria and Iran since the Syrian civil war began in March 2011.“All of our warnings regarding Iran have proven correct. We will not tolerate any violation of our sovereignty,” Danon wrote to UN Security Council members in a letter on Saturday.“This is not the first time that we have warned you of Iran’s dangerous actions that undermine the situation in our region. This incident proves every one of those warnings correct. Israel will defend its citizens and will not tolerate any violation of its sovereignty,” he wrote.Danon called on the Security Council to “condemn this dangerous act and to put an immediate end to Iranian provocations.”“Security Council members must not stand idly by while Iran is instigating dangerous escalations and violating Security Council resolutions,” he said.Israel has issued several stern warnings of late about the increased Iranian involvement along its border in Syria and Lebanon. The Israeli cabinet just held a meeting near the Syrian border to highlight the new threats, which it attributes to Iran’s growing confidence given the success of the government of Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war, thanks to their support.Israel called the drone infiltration a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty,” and warned that Iran would be held accountable for its meddling, raising the specter of a larger confrontation in an area that has remained largely stable since a monthlong war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006.“This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory. Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn’t know how it will end,” Israel’s chief military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said in a special statement. “Whoever is responsible for this incident is the one who will pay the price.”After the UAV was intercepted, Israel targeted at least 12 sites “including three aerial defense batteries and four Iranian targets that are part of Iran’s military establishment in Syria,” according to an Israeli military statement.The Israeli military said its planes faced massive anti-aircraft fire from Syria that forced two pilots to abandon an F-16 jet that crashed in northern Israel. The pilots were injured, one seriously and another lightly.Israel would not confirm whether the aircraft was actually shot down by enemy fire, which would mark the first such instance for Israel since 1982 during the first Lebanon war.Israel has long complained about the involvement of archenemy Iran, and Iranian proxy Hezbollah, in the Syria war. Both have sent forces to back Assad, who appears headed toward victory after years of fighting. Israel has said it will not accept a permanent military presence by Iran and its Shiite allies in Syria, especially near the Israeli border.Israel has shot down several drones that previously tried to infiltrate its territory from Syria. The capture of an Iranian drone and the targeting of Iranian sites in response, however, marked a dramatic escalation in the Israeli retaliation. The military confirmed that the initial target in Syria — the unmanned aircraft’s launch components — was successfully destroyed, and released grainy footage of the strike. Israel also said it had recovered the remnants of the drone, which proved that it belonged to Iran.An Iranian UAV crossed into Israeli territory and was intercepted by an attack helicopter‬-Posted by Israel Defense Forces on Saturday, 10 February 2018-IAF second-in-command Brig.

Lebanon signs offshore drilling deal amid dispute with Israel-French, Italian and Russian consortium confident no issues will arise over conflicting claims, even after Israel warns against 'provocative behavior'-By AFP-TOI-11 February 2018

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Lebanon on Friday signed its first contract to drill for oil and gas off its coast with a consortium comprising energy giants Total, ENI, and Novatek, including in a block disputed by Israel.Israel says one of two blocks in the eastern Mediterranean where Lebanon wants to drill for oil belongs to it, and last week denounced any exploration by Beirut as “provocative.”President Michel Aoun said at a signing ceremony that Lebanon has “entered a new chapter in its history and is now a member of energy-producing countries.”Looking to tap potential oil and gas reserves after major offshore discoveries by neighboring Israel and Cyprus, the Mediterranean country in December approved a bid on blocks four and nine.Block nine is the disputed block with Israel.Exploration is set to begin in 2019.French energy giant Total and Italy’s Eni each hold a 40 percent stake in the consortium, and Russia’s Novatek has a 20 percent stake.Total welcomed the deal, saying it stipulates that drilling will take place in “at least one well per block in the first three years,” and that the “consortium’s priority will be to drill a first exploration well on Block 4 in 2019.”“As for Block 9, Total and its partners are fully aware of the Israeli-Lebanese border dispute in the southern part of the block that covers only very limited area (less than 8 percent of the block’s surface).“Given that the main prospects are located more than 25 km (15.5 miles) from the disputed area, the consortium confirms that the exploration well on Block 9 will have no interference at all with any fields or prospects located south of the border area,” it added in a statement issued in English.Last week, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Liberman accused Lebanon of “provocative behavior.”“They issue a tender on a gas field — including a bloc which by all accounts is ours — to international groups that are respectable companies, which, to my mind, is making a serious mistake, since it’s against all rules and protocol in cases like this,” he said.Lebanese Energy Minister Cesar Abi Khalil responded by saying Lebanon would defend its right to drill there.“Israel will do what it can to block us from taking advantage of our oil wealth, and we will do everything in our power to defend it,” he said.Tensions between the two neighbors — which are technically still at war — have also mounted as Israel pursues the construction of a barrier along the border.Lebanon says part of the wall follows the UN-demarcated “Blue Line” drawn up after Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000, and insists some sections will cut into its territory.Israel dismissed the claim and said on Tuesday the work is being carried out on Israeli territory.Israel began building the series of obstacles in 2012, six years after fighting a devastating war with Lebanese Shiite terror group Hezbollah.

Condition of F-16 pilot in downed jet improves after emergency surgery-Head of Rambam hospital says aviator suffered wounds to chest, abdomen while ejecting from jet; co-pilot set to be released home Sunday-By TOI staff and AFP-FEB 11,18

The condition of a seriously wounded Israeli pilot began to improve Saturday, after he underwent surgery for injuries he sustained while ejecting from his plane over northern Israel, in the midst of a severe confrontation between Israel, Syria, and Iran. The F-16 jet he was piloting took part in Israeli airstrikes in response to an Iranian drone that entered Israeli airspace from Syria in the early morning hours on Saturday.The Israeli Air Force said it was investigating what caused the pilots to eject and if the aircraft was hit by Syrian anti-aircraft missiles. If the plane was in fact shot down by enemy fire, it would mark the first such instance for Israel since the 1982 Lebanon War.Dr. Rafi Beyar, the head of Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center, said the pilot was in stable condition after suffering injuries to his chest and abdomen. He said the pilot, who was still unconscious and connected to a respirator, also required blood transfusions.Beyar said a second pilot, who was lightly injured while abandoning the aircraft, was set to be released from the hospital on Sunday.President Reuven Rivlin later spoke with the second pilot.”My heart is with you and your comrades, and I hope that I will meet you soon. You and the entire squadron have proven that you do not come back until your mission is fulfilled, and I thank God together with the entire nation that you have returned,” Rivlin told the pilot, according to his spokesperson.The jet itself crashed into a field near Kibbutz Harduf in the Jezreel Valley.The F-16 was one of several scrambled to conduct strikes in Syria early Saturday after an Iranian drone infiltrated Israeli airspace.The army responded with a strike on the drone’s launch site, including a control facility manned by Iranian operators. The military later launched a second wave of raids on a dozen Syrian and Iranian targets inside Syria.The air force was met with heavy anti-aircraft fire, including multiple missiles. The Syrian response set off multiple warning sirens in Israel.The exchange of fire was the most serious between Israel and Iran since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011. It marked the first time Israel publicly acknowledged attacking what it identified as Iranian targets in Syria since the war began.According to the Israeli military, the confrontation began with the drone entering Israeli airspace before being intercepted by a combat helicopter over the city of Beit Shean, near the Jordanian border.The military called the infiltration a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty,” and said Iran would be held responsible for its outcome, marking a dramatic escalation in tensions along Israel’s northern border.The IDF released video footage early Saturday afternoon of the drone’s destruction over Israeli territory, as well as the subsequent IDF strike on its Iranian command vehicle in Syria.‪An Iranian UAV crossed into Israeli territory and was intercepted by an attack helicopter‬-Posted by Israel Defense Forces on Saturday, 10 February 2018-A spokesman for Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said the Syrian response was “a clear warning to Israel.

Despite northern escalation, 100,000 people across Israel visit national parks-Hikers flock to nature reserves throughout country, including in north, after clashes sparked by Iranian UAV infiltration into Israel-By TOI staff-FEB 11,18

Despite the escalation on the northern border, some 100,000 people visited national parks throughout the country on Saturday, including in the north, the Israel Nature and Parks Authority said.Among the sites in northern Israel to see thousands of visitors were Mount Hermon, as well as the Banias and Hula Valley nature reserves, the Parks Authority said.Both Mount Hermon and the Banias Nature Reserve are located in the Golan Heights, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War.Early Saturday, an Iranian drone that entered Israel from Syria was shot down by an Israeli Air Force combat helicopter.In response, Israel struck Iranian and Syrian military targets in Syria, and an Israeli F-16 jet was downed over Israel after it was targeted by Syrian anti-aircraft missiles.The condition of the pilot, who was seriously injured after he was forced to evacuate the plane, stabilized Saturday morning, but he was still unconscious and connected to a respirator, doctors at Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center said.A second pilot was lightly injured while abandoning the aircraft.The jet itself crashed into a field near Kibbutz Harduf in the Jezreel Valley.Following the initial exchange of fire, the military attacked 12 Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria a new wave of strikes it described as a “large-scale” attack.The military called the drone infiltration a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty” and said Iran would be held responsible for its outcome, marking a dramatic escalation in tensions along its northern border.After Iran and Syria denied that the unmanned drone violated the Jewish state’s airspace, the Israel Defense Forces released video footage of the drone’s destruction over Israeli territory, as well as the subsequent IDF strike on its Iranian command vehicle in Syria.‪An Iranian UAV crossed into Israeli territory and was intercepted by an attack helicopter‬-Posted by Israel Defense Forces on Saturday, 10 February 2018-A Syrian statement said Israeli jets targeted a drone base in central Syria whose mission is to gather intelligence on IS in the area.

Palestinian stopped outside Hebron holy site with knife-With Border Police weapons cocked at him after setting off metal detector outside Tomb of Patriarchs, 15-year-old raises shirt to reveal weapon-By Jacob Magid-FEB 11,18-TOI
For the second day in a row, Border Police arrested a Palestinian suspect in the West Bank city of Hebron on Saturday, after finding a knife hidden under his clothes at the entrance to the Tomb of the Patriarchs holy site.After the 15-year-old boy set off the metal detector at a checkpoint outside the holy site, officers cocked their weapons at him and asked him to slowly raise his shirt.Upon recognizing the knife underneath, security forces detained the teen and took him in for additional questioning.Less than 24 hours earlier, Border Police forces made a similar arrest of a 23-year-old Palestinian man who raised the suspicions of officers at the holy site’s entrance. They uncovered a knife under his clothes upon carrying out a full-body inspection.Also Friday, security forces arrested an armed Palestinian teenager at the entrance to the West Bank settlement of Hashmonaim.The Tomb of the Patriarchs is a frequent target for attempted stabbing attacks.In January Border Police officers made similar arrests of a man and a woman in two separate incidents at the site, after finding knives on their persons.A Palestinian teen was arrested trying to enter the holy site with a knife in December, and in November two 17-year-old Palestinians were also detained after each attempted to smuggle a knife into the site in two separate incidents a day apart.

Israel urges Russia to prevent further escalation in Syria-Moscow calls for 'restraint' on all sides following clashes, says risk to lives of Russian soldiers 'absolutely unacceptable'-By TOI staff and Agencies-FEB 11,18

Israel appealed to Russia to intervene and prevent further escalation after an Iranian drone was shot down over Israel Saturday, leading to “large-scale” Israeli strikes in Syria and heavy Syrian counter-fire. An Israeli F-16 fighter jet subsequently crashed under fire from Syrian air defenses in a severe increase in tensions.Diplomatic sources said Israel was in contact with officials in Moscow, seeking to convey a message to Syria and Iran that though it had landed a heavy blow in response to the drone incident, it was not interested in further violence.Similar calming messages were reportedly passed on to Washington.Moscow, in a statement, called for “restraint” of all parties in Syria and said it considered risking the lives of Russian soldiers “absolutely unacceptable” following large-scale Israeli air strikes inside Syria.“We strongly call on all sides involved to show restraint and avoid all acts that could lead to complicating the situation further,” the Russian foreign ministry said.“It is absolutely unacceptable to create threats to the lives and security of Russian soldiers that are in the Syrian Arab Republic on the invitation of the legal government to assist in the fight against terrorism,” it added.Israel has told Moscow that Saturday’s events are proof that its warnings of Iranian entrenchment and growing boldness in Syria were merited, sources told the Ynet news site.Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has held a series of meetings in recent months with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Iran’s influence in war-torn Syria and Lebanon.Netanyahu has been seeking to persuade Russia to limit Iran’s presence near Israeli territory and to stop it from entrenching itself militarily in Syria.Israel struck a dozen Syrian and Iranian targets inside the civil war-torn country on Saturday in what it said was a “large-scale” attack, after the Iranian drone was shot down over Israeli territory, and an Israeli F-16 fighter jet subsequently crashed under fire from Syrian air defenses. The two pilots ejected; one of them was seriously injured and the second was lightly injured.The confrontation was the most serious between Israel and Iran since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011.Russia, Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah — which is backed by Tehran — all support Syrian President Bashar Assad in the civil conflict.In a meeting in Moscow last month, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s concerns with what he described as Iranian attempts to establish a military presence in Syria and produce weapons capable of precision strikes against Israel there.“We won’t accept either of those, and will act according to our needs,” Netanyahu said following the meeting with Putin.Israel remains technically at war with Syria and occupies a swathe of the strategic Golan Heights that it seized in the Six Day War of 1967 and later annexed in a move never recognized by the international community.On Tuesday, Netanyahu took members of his security cabinet for a tour of the Israeli side, where they were briefed by the military on the situation.“We want peace, but are prepared for any scenario, and suggest that nobody tries us,” he said.Israel has sought to avoid direct involvement in the Syrian war, but acknowledges carrying out air strikes there to stop what it says are advanced arms deliveries to Hezbollah.

Israel says Iran, Syria ‘playing with fire’ but does not want escalation-'This is the most blatant and severe Iranian violation of Israeli sovereignty in the last years,' army spokesman states, after Iranian drone infiltrates and Israel retaliates-By AFP and TOI staff-FEB 11,18

The Israeli military said Saturday Iran and Syria were “playing with fire” but that it was not seeking an escalation after an Iranian drone infiltration resulted in large-scale Israeli air strikes inside Syria.Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus made the comments after Saturday’s confrontation, the most serious between arch foes Israel and Iran since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011.Conricus told journalists in a phone conference that the Syrians and Iranians were “playing with fire” but Israel was “not looking to escalate the situation.”“This is the most blatant and severe Iranian violation of Israeli sovereignty in the last years,” Conricus said, referring to the Iranian drone entering Israeli airspace from Syria. “That’s why our response is as severe as it is.”Earlier Saturday, an Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashed after coming under fire from Syrian air defenses during attacks against “Iranian targets” in the war-torn country, a military spokesman said. The two pilots ejected. One was seriously injured and the second was lightly injured.The military said it later attacked 12 Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria in what it described as “large-scale” raids.

After downing of Israeli F-16, Iran warns: ‘Era of Israeli strikes over’-Tehran, Syria deny 'lies' that Iranian UAV that sparked northern clashes entered Israeli territory, insist it was gathering intel on IS; IDF issues footage of drone's destruction-By TOI staff and Agencies-FEB 11,18

Iran and Syria on Saturday denied that an unmanned drone Israel said it shot down violated the Jewish state’s airspace, calling Israeli allegations “lies” and saying the drone was on a regular mission gathering intelligence on Islamic State.The drone incident led to a barrage of Israeli airstrikes on Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria. Syria responded with heavy anti-aircraft fire that set off multiple warning sirens in Israel and managed to down one Israeli F-16 in Israeli territory, seriously wounding a pilot.A spokesman for Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said the Syrian response was “a clear warning to Israel. The era of Israeli strikes on Syria is over.” He vowed a “relentless response” to “all further aggression.”A Syrian statement said Israeli jets targeted a drone base in central Syria whose mission is to gather intelligence on IS in the area. It said the station was hit while drones were on regular missions in the country’s desert in Homs province. The statement said it was “a lie and misleading” to say the drone had entered Israel’s airspace.A statement on Central Military Media, which is allied with the Syrian military, called Israel’s attack on the drone site a “terrorist act,” warning of “a tough and serious response.”According to the Israeli military, the confrontation began with the drone entering Israeli airspace before being intercepted by a combat helicopter over the city of Beit Shean, near the Jordanian border.The military called the infiltration a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty” and said Iran would be held responsible for its outcome, marking a dramatic escalation in tensions along Israel’s northern border.The IDF released video footage early Saturday afternoon of the drone’s destruction over Israeli territory as well as the subsequent IDF strike on its Iranian command vehicle in Syria.‪An Iranian UAV crossed into Israeli territory and was intercepted by an attack helicopter‬-Posted by Israel Defense Forces on Saturday, 10 February 2018-Israel said it later targeted at least 12 other sites “including three aerial defense batteries and four Iranian targets that are part of Iran’s military establishment in Syria,” according to a military statement.Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said Syria “has the right to legitimate self-defense. To cover their crimes in the region, Israeli officials are resorting to lies against other countries.”The deputy chief of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards warned, meanwhile, that his country could “bring hell upon the Zionist regime.”Brigadier General Hossein Salami refused to confirm to the Tasnim news agency that an Iranian drone had been shot down. “We cannot confirm this report on the drone because Israelis are liars … if Syrians confirm it, Iran will confirm it as well,” said Salami, according to a Reuters translation.But he warned that Tehran had the capability to destroy all US army bases in the region and to “bring hell upon the Zionist regime.”A Syrian military official said that his country would continue to respond in kind to all attacks on its soil.“Our defense systems hit a number of missiles as well as an Israeli aircraft that had been carrying out attacks south of the Damascus capital, to its west and on the outskirts of Homs,” the Syrian official told the Lebanese El Nashra news outlet.He added that the damage sustained from the Israeli aircraft fire was limited to property, but acknowledged that a number of soldiers had been injured as well.The Hezbollah-affiliated Al Mayadeen TV station claimed that the Syrian military had managed to intercept 70 percent of the dozens of missiles fired by Israel’s warplanes.The Israeli army responded to the drone infiltration with strikes on Iranian targets, including the drone’s launch site — the Tiyas Military Airbase near Palmyra — which the army said it hit in “a complicated surgical strike.” The strike reportedly targeted a facility housing the unmanned aircraft’s Iranian operators.Israeli warplanes flying over Syria met heavy anti-aircraft fire. The military said one of its pilots was seriously wounded as a result of an emergency evacuation from his F-16 jet targeted by missiles. The F-16 crashed in northern Israel. One pilot was evacuated to a hospital in serious condition. A second pilot was lightly wounded.If the plane was in fact shot down by enemy fire, it could mark the first such instance for Israel since 1982 during the first Lebanon war.Damascus residents celebrated the news.Wassim Elias, 39, a government employee, called it retribution for the many Israeli raids on Syrian soil before. “This earned the Syrian army and every Syrian citizen prestige. This is what we have always demanded,” he said.Firas Hamdan, 42, a public servant, said such Syrian responses will ensure no more Israeli attacks in Syria. “Such attacks should be confronted and the response should be tougher to give the Israelis a lesson.”A Syrian lawmaker, Feras Shehabi, said the response marked a “major shift in the balance of power in favor of Syria and the axis of resistance.” He said “Israelis must realize they have no longer superiority in the skies or on the ground.”Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said the army had information on the drone’s mission, but would not go into details, saying only that it was “on a military mission sent and operated by Iranian military forces.”He warned that Syria and Iran were “playing with fire,” but stressed that his country was not seeking an escalation.“This is the most blatant and severe Iranian violation of Israeli sovereignty in the last years,” Conricus told journalists in a phone conference. “That’s why our response is as severe as it is.”The confrontation was the most serious between Israel and Iran since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011.Diplomatic sources said Israel has appealed to Russia to intervene and prevent further escalation.

It fears Iran could use Syrian territory to stage attacks or create a land corridor from Iran to Lebanon that could allow it to transfer weapons more easily to Hezbollah.The Israeli Cabinet recently held a meeting on the Golan Heights near the border with Syria to highlight new threats, which are attributed to Iran’s growing confidence given Assad’s apparent victory in Syria thanks to their help.Agencies contributed to this report.

Hezbollah: Downing of Israeli F-16 the start of a ‘new strategic era’-Lebanese terror group praises 'vigilance' of Syrian army, says crashed jet marks 'decisive end to old arrangements'-By Agencies and TOI staff-FEB 11,18

Hezbollah hailed Syria’s air defenses after they reportedly downed an Israeli fighter jet on Saturday, saying it marked the start of a “new strategic era.”“This is the beginning of a new strategic era which puts an end to the violation of Syrian airspace and territory,” the Lebanese terror group said in a statement published by Lebanon’s ANI news agency.Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy backing Syrian President Bashar Assad in his country’s civil war, praised the “vigilance of the Syrian army,” and said it had “bravely blocked Israeli warplanes and downed an F-16.”It also said the Syrian response marked “a decisive end to old arrangements.”Hezbollah supporters were celebrating the incident on Saturday across from the Israeli city of Metulla, according to Israeli TV reports.The statement from Hezbollah came after its allies Iran and Syria denied that an unmanned drone Israel said it shot down violated the Jewish state’s airspace, calling Israeli allegations “lies,” and saying the drone was on a regular mission gathering intelligence on the Islamic State.The drone incident led to a barrage of Israeli airstrikes on Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria.

UN agency for Palestinian refugees fundraises after US cuts-President Trump said last month that the Palestinians must return to peace talks in order to receive American aid money-By Edith M. Lederer-FEB 11,18-TOI

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The UN agency for Palestinian refugees said Friday it has embarked on a fundraising campaign that will likely include a ministerial-level donors conference next month to fill the gap left by the Trump administration’s sudden cut of tens of millions of dollars in funding.Scott Anderson, the agency’s West Bank operations director who just visited Washington, said the US hasn’t yet spelled out what reforms it wants to see implemented in order to restore the $65 million it is withholding now — and possibly millions more it may hold back in the future.The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees, known as UNRWA, was notified on Jan. 16 that the US was withholding $65 million of a planned $125 million installment and demanding a “fundamental re-examination” of the agency in addition to changes to its programs, which have been heavily criticized by Israel.UNRWA, which serves some 5 million Palestinian refugees and their descendants, had a budget of over $1 billion last year. The US gave $350 million of that amount and was the agency’s largest donor.US President Donald Trump told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Jan. 25 that the Palestinians must return to peace talks to receive US aid money — a comment that raised alarm from the leaders of 21 international humanitarian groups who protested the administration’s “dangerous” link between aid and political objectives.But Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon praised the US move, arguing that UNRWA misuses humanitarian aid to support propaganda against the Jewish state and perpetuate the Palestinians’ plight.Anderson, a former US Army major, stressed that UNRWA has no political role and is a UN humanitarian organization that helps the impoverished civilians and youngsters needing education.He responded to a questioner alleging that Palestinian students in UNRWA schools are taught that Israel doesn’t exist and isn’t on the map and that “Jews are hateful people” saying: “We certainly do not teach hatred for anyone and we do not teach that Israel does not exist.”Anderson added that he speaks to the Israeli army almost every day and a general tweeted last year “praising UNRWA for the work they’re trying to do around the curriculum.”But Trump’s action has sparked UNRWA’s biggest-ever financial crisis, and it is seeking $800 million for emergency operations in Syria, the West Bank and Gaza Strip this year.Anderson said “it’s far too early to talk about the consequences of underfunding,” stressing that “our operations remain viable.”But in the West Bank, he said Palestinians are quite concerned about the funding cuts as well as Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and continued Israeli settlement building.“They see this also, without perhaps defining it as such, as an existential threat to them and their future,” Anderson said. “It’s a combination of fear of the decisions that have been taken, fear of what may be coming in the future, and trepidation of what all that means to them at this point in time.”But Anderson said he wants to focus less on consequences and more on increasing income.In addition to the ministerial conference, he said UNRWA has launched a campaign for individual donors called “dignity is priceless.”Peter Mulrean, director of UNRWA’s UN office, said only Kuwait has increased funding, giving the agency an additional $900,000. But he said 15 other countries have “front-loaded” their yearly donations including the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Japan. Others have taken steps to do so including Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Russia, Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland.Mulrean said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has agreed to participate in the ministerial conference which will also focus on UNRWA’s accomplishments and cost-effective delivery of humanitarian assistance.By showing “that we are effective and get a good bang for the buck,” Mulrean said, “we hope (we) will make it all the more attractive for donor countries as well as others to step up and fund UNRWA.”Mulrean said UNRWA is also continuing to engage the United States and hopes it will participate in the funding conference.“We would like nothing more than to see the US continue as our single largest donor,” he said. “They are a hugely important country in the region and they have traditionally been a great leader in humanitarian assistance and we hope that will continue to be the case.”

Heading home, Pence insists 'no daylight' on North Korea-[Associated Press]-ZEKE MILLER-YAHOONEWS-February 10, 2018

ABOARD AIR FORCE TWO (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence's efforts to keep North Korea from stealing the show at the Winter Olympics proved short-lived, drowned out by images of the two Koreas marching and competing as one.And as the South appeared to look favorably on warming ties on the Korean Peninsula, Pence insisted Saturday "there is no daylight" among the United States and allies South Korea and Japan in intensifying pressure on the North over its nuclear and missile programs.Pence spent the days leading up to the Pyeongchang Olympics warning that the North was trying to "hijack the message and imagery" of the event with its "propaganda." But the North was welcomed with open arms to what South Korean President Moon Jae-in called "Olympic games of peace."It was the U.S. that appeared to be the one left in the cold, especially after the sister of the North Korean dictator extended an invitation from her brother for Moon to visit the North. That was the clearest sign yet of an expanding diplomatic opening opposed by the Trump administration.Pence said Moon updated him about the meeting he had with North Korean officials and "both of us reiterated to each other tonight that we will continue to stand strong and work in a coordinated way to bring maximum economic and diplomatic pressure to bear on North Korea."Moon was all smiles as he greeted Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and Kim Yong Nam, the country's 90-year-old nominal head of state, for lunch at the presidential residence.Pence said Friday the U.S. would oppose talks between the two Koreas until the North agreed to open negotiations on ending its nuclear program.On his flight to Alaska on Saturday, the vice president said he left Asia "encouraged that we will continue to work very closely to continue and intensify the maximum pressure campaign" against North Korea.He said war had forged "the core of the bond" between the U.S. and South Korea and that helps explains "why there is no daylight and there will be no daylight" between the two.At the opening ceremonies Friday, Pence sat stone-faced in his seat as Moon and North Korean officials stood together with much of the stadium to applaud their joint team of athletes. White House officials stressed that Pence had applauded only for the American team, but Asia experts said the vice president's refusal to stand could be seen as disrespectful to the hosts.U.S. officials have been urging South Korea to be cautious in its rapprochement with the North. But North Korea's record on human rights and the growing threat from its nuclear weapons program appeared out of mind.Even Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has shared the American skepticism of warming North-South relations and pressed Moon against falling for the North's "smile diplomacy," greeted Kim Yong Nam.At a Friday VIP reception for delegation leaders, Pence arrived late and stayed for just five minutes — and did not interact with the delegation from the North."The Koreans will think it's a mood kill," said Frank Jannuzi, an expert on East Asia at the Mansfield Foundation in Washington. He criticized the Trump administration for straining too hard to signal disgust of Kim Jong Un's government."The grievances that the world has about North Korea are very legitimate. But the Olympic moment that President Moon is trying to generate here is not a time to nurse those grievances," Jannuzi said. "It's a time to focus on messages of reconciliation and peace."As it turned out, with the two Koreas celebrating a moment of unity, the United States was left outmaneuvered by an adversary and out of step with an ally.___Associated Press writers Matthew Pennington and Jonathan Lemire in Washington contributed to this report.

Come visit: South Korea's leader invited to North Korea-[Associated Press]-FOSTER KLUG and KIM TONG-HYUNG-YAHOONEWS-February 10, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — A rare invitation to Pyongyang for South Korea's president marked Day Two of the North Korean Kim dynasty's southern road tour Saturday, part of an accelerating diplomatic thaw that included some Korean liquor over lunch and the shared joy of watching a "unified" Korea team play hockey at the Olympics.Nothing has been settled on any trip north by South Korean President Moon Jae-in. But the verbal message to come at a "convenient time" from dictator Kim Jong Un, delivered by his visiting younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, is part of a sudden rush of improving feelings between the rivals during the Pyeongchang Olympics. The result: a heady, sometimes surreal, state of affairs in a South Korea that has seen far more threat than charm out of the North.Still, it wouldn't be South Korea if people weren't asking the perennial question when it comes to North Korea changing gears and showering its rival with apparent affection: What's in it for Pyongyang?Past "charm offensives" have been interpreted as North Korea trying to recoup from crippling sanctions on their nuclear program, or trying to drive a wedge between Seoul and its U.S. ally.A massive military parade in Pyongyang on the eve of the just-opened Pyeongchang Games has been used as Exhibit A by skeptics. In it, Kim Jong Un highlighted several huge intercontinental ballistic missiles, which were successfully flight tested three times last year and could reach deep into the U.S. mainland when perfected.Even so, there's also cautious optimism, or curiosity at least. If peace isn't imminent, a summit in Pyongyang between Moon and Kim Jong Un seems preferable to recent months' threats.Moon told Kim Yo Jong that the North and South should continue to build conditions for a summit, Moon spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said. The U.S. and the North should quickly resume dialogue, he said.The lunch Saturday at Seoul's presidential mansion between Moon and Kim Yo Jong was the most significant diplomatic encounter between the rivals in years. The night before, Kim and other North Korean delegates attended the opening ceremony of the Olympics, watching a "unified" Korean team march under a banner showing an undivided Korean Peninsula.In a surreal mixture of dignitaries, the Olympic Stadium's VIP box included Kim Yo Jong and North Korea's nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam, sitting above and behind U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and fellow hard-liner Shinzo Abe, Japan's prime minister. Pence and the Kims seemed to go out of their way not to acknowledge each other.That was not the case with Moon — either at the games, when he enthusiastically reached up to shake Kim Yo Jong's hand, or at the lunch the next day. South Korean television showed its smiling president entering a reception room Saturday and shaking hands with the North Koreans.The opening part of the talks was mostly about the weather: Pyeongchang was colder than Seoul, it was agreed."You went through a lot of trouble braving the cold until late" last night, Moon told the North Koreans, referring to their attendance at the frigid opening ceremonies.At the luncheon, Moon proposed a toast, calling for peace and "mutual prosperity" for the two Koreas. He then recalled his past visit to the North's Diamond Mountain resort, where he and his mother met his North Korean aunt during a temporary reunion of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.He also talked about visiting the North Korean border town of Kaesong, where the countries operated a joint factory park that had been a symbol of rapprochement before South Korea shut it down in 2016, after North Korea's fourth nuclear test."But I haven't been to Pyongyang," Moon said, according to comments provided by his office.Kim Yo Jong said she hopes to see Moon in Pyongyang soon so that he and her brother could "exchange views over many issues," which she said would make "North-South relations develop like yesterday was a long time ago.""We hope that President (Moon) could leave a legacy that would last over generations by leading the way in opening a new era of unification," she said.After sitting at a table, Kim Yo Jong placed a blue document folder in front of her. She later gave that folder to Moon, and Moon's office said it was a personal letter from her brother. Officials didn't reveal what was written in it.After meeting with Moon, the North Korean delegates boarded a bullet train to Gangneung, a coastal city hosting some Olympic events. Later Saturday night, they all joined the chief of the International Olympic Committee to watch the debut of the inter-Korean team in the women's ice hockey tournament. The Koreans were crushed by Switzerland, 8-0.Pence's office didn't directly address Kim's invitation to Moon. "The vice president is grateful that President Moon reaffirmed his strong commitment to the global maximum pressure campaign and for his support for continued sanctions," Pence spokeswoman Alyssa Farah said when asked about the developments.But Pence said that Moon shared "a bit" about his meeting with the North Koreans, and that he "appreciated him sharing his perspective on that.""I leave here very confident that we are going to continue to do the things we've known have to be done to continue to pressure North Korea to abandon their nuclear ambitions," Pence said.Moon is eager to use Kim Yo Jong's presence at the games to restore regular communication with North Korea and eventually pull it into nuclear talks. Many in Seoul, however, while interested in the warming high-level contacts, are also tempering expectations for a real breakthrough.There's worry, too, that the proposed summit Pyongyang may come with preconditions — a North Korean specialty. A big one could be a demand to cease the U.S.-South Korean war games that North Korea claims are preparation for invasion.But Moon, a liberal who has always wanted to engage the North, will also have to convince a good portion of his own people who are deeply wary about North Korean intentions.Throw in there the accusations that South Korea has had to arrange huge payouts for past meetings, and that these earlier encounters, while producing indelible images, have done little to slow North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons.Even if there are more meetings between the rivals after the Games, accomplishing something is another matter. South Korea wants a northern neighbor without nukes; North Korea vows to keep its weapons until the United States discards its "hostile" policies against the country.Hours before Friday's opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, Japan's Abe warned Moon not to fall for North Korea's "smile diplomacy" during the Olympics, according to Moon's office. Pence carried a similar message.They seem to have gone unheeded."Kim Jong Un is clearly serious about reviving talks with the South to improve relations," said Koh Yu-hwan, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Dongguk University and a security adviser to Moon."It seems clear," he said, "that the countries have entered a phase of restoring a regular level of contact."___Foster Klug is South Korea bureau chief for The Associated Press.
