Israeli military denies Syrian claim on downing its drone

Israeli army denies Syrian claims on downing an Israeli military drone. Spokesperson for the Israeli military said in a statement that the incident occurred overnight after Israeli jets struck artillery posts in Syria. The strike came in retaliation for a Syrian mortar shell that exploded a few hours before in an open field in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights. The fire exchange was the fifth such incident occurred over the past two weeks, but it was the first time the Syrian army responded with missiles to the Israeli retaliation.
