BBC News with Suman Gamry. Israeli forces say they have hit Syrian air defenses and Iranian targets in a way of air strikes after Syrian government forces said they have brought down an Israeli fighter jet. The aircraft crashed in Israeli territory. Two pilots were injured, one of them seriously. Tom Bateman reports. Israel said a drone flew from Syria, infiltrated its airspace early this morning. Blaming Iran, it described this as the most blatant and severe violation of Israeli sovereignty in recent years. Its F-16s attacked facilities in eastern Syria from which the drone was allegedly controlled, and according to the military, they came under heavy Syria anti-aircraft fire. One of the jets crashed in Israeli territory. Israel then launched strikes against air defenses and Iranian targets inside Syria in what amounted to one of the most serious escalations yet between regional enemies. Iran accused Israel of lying and played down the scope of its role in Syria.
