Israeli Patriot missile intercepts drone from Syria - IDF

Israel 'not ruling out' eventual ties with Syria's Assad

"The IDF will not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt its civilians". "We expect everyone to respect our sovereignty and for Syria to carefully abide by the ceasefire agreements".

Asked by a reporter if he anticipated a time when the Quneitra crossing would be reopened under the United Nations -monitored armistice between Israel and Syria, and whether the two old enemies could establish "some kind of relationship", Lieberman said: "I reckon we are a long way from that, but we are not ruling out anything".

Supposedly Israel waited 15 minutes before shooting it down, so they could check with the Russians, and make sure it wasn't theirs before shooting it down.

The shoot-down came weeks after Israeli forces fired at another drone from Syria.

"It's clear that our focus is on Syria and Iran", the prime minister added of the Wednesday evening meeting. "We will discuss Syria, we will discuss Iran, we will discuss Israel's security needs", Netanyahu told reporters before leaving.

"Using a Patriot battery, the IDF intercepted an unmanned aerial vehicle that infiltrated from Syria into Israeli territory", the IDF said in a statement.

It was the third time the two leaders have met in the last six months.

They trudged off the pitch after making it to the quarter-final for the first time in 48 years. Going past Croatia and beyond, though, would be the greatest reward.

Israel says it has not taken sides in the Syrian civil war, but has bombed targets repeatedly in the war-torn country, typically weapons transfers to Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group and regional rival, and sites affiliated with Iran.

Israel will not dismiss the possibility of future relations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday. An Israeli warplane was shot down during the reprisal.

However, there have recently been signs of an emerging compromise among key players.

Netanyahu's national security adviser, Meir Ben-Shabbat, also participated in the meeting.

Russian Federation is an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but has turned a blind eye to frequent sorties by Israeli aircraft against targets of Iran and the Hezbollah militant group in Syria.

While Russia and Iran have both deployed forces to Syria to help prop up Assad's government, their interests don't always converge. Israel and Russian Federation have set up a coordination mechanism over Syrian airspace to avoid an inadvertent clash between their forces.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Giornale published Wednesday that Moscow hopes that Israel and Iran will both display caution and avoid a showdown.
