One of the most confounding - and unsafe - aspects of the six-year-conflict in Syria is that its roster of combatants continues to broaden.

Iran with Russian Federation is the main military backer of the Damascus government.

The military added that during the attack was launched anti-aircraft missiles into Israel that triggered sirens in the North of the country.

Now another subplot is emerging, involving one of America's strongest allies: Israel.

During the UN Security Council briefing on the Situation in Syria on Wednesday, the US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley defended the Israeli regime for its aggression in Syria in response to the downing of its fighter jet, and accused Iran of taking destabilizing moves in the region.

Over the past years, Israel, which is viewed as a supporter of anti-Damascus militants, has frequently attacked targets in Syria, often claiming that it hit positions or convoys belonging to Iran. There's much more to this than a violation of airspace.

Syria's air defenses fired at Israeli spy drone as it flew over the southwestern Syrian city of Quneitra, forcing them to leave the Syrian air space. Tehran provides military support to Assad, but is also fortifying its own military presence in Syria, not far from Israel's northern border, and helping its Shiite ally, Hezbollah, build up forces outside the Israel-occupied Golan Heights.

Haley punctuated her assessment by noting that the incursion suggested that "Iran and Hezbollah are making plans to stay in Syria". "We think Iran needs to withdraw its military, its militia from Syria and allow the hope for the peace process to take hold in Geneva", Tillerson said Wednesday during a conference with his Jordanian counterpart in Amman.
