“Intentional provocation.” What is known about the crash of the Il-20 over the Mediterranean Sea
“The main military investigation department of the Criminal Investigation Service of Russia instituted a criminal investigation into the crash of the Il-20 aircraft over the Mediterranean Sea, and investigators and criminologists of the SC of Russia are working together with representatives of the Russian Defense Ministry,” Petrenko said.
All the circumstances and causes of the event are established.
Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that on September 17 at about 11:00 Moscow time, when returning to the airbase of Khmeimim over the Mediterranean Sea, 35 kilometers from the coast of Syria, communication with the crew of the Russian Il-20 aircraft disappeared.
According to the military department, the IL-20 disappeared from the radar of aviation control during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in Latakia province.
Later, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that the plane was shot down by Syria’s air defense system. According to the ministry, under cover of the IL-20, Israeli pilots placed it under the fire of the S-200 complex.
It was noted that the Israeli means of aviation control and the F-16 pilots “could not help seeing the Russian plane, since it came in for landing from a height of 5 km.”
At the same time, they intentionally went to this provocation, said the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, noting that Russia regarded the actions of Israel as hostile.

What a shame Isra-hell rushed things a bit as the Yum Kippur started in the evening of the 18-th. On the positive, the 2018 Kol Nidre prayer would fix things just fine.
The Likud military is nothing but a bunch of bullies and cowards.
Didn’t the Israelis try to blame the USS Liberty on Egypt?
Israel- For such a small and insignificant “country”, they sure cause of lot of problems. Without the USA they are nothing really.
We have to vote out the dual US-Israeli politicians in Washington and replace them with honest politicians that are not bribed by AIPAC, JDL,
Israeli Lobbyist, Sheldon Adelson etc. Otherwise Israel and Netanyahu will drag US into a nuclear war.
Clearly the Israeli military planned the illegal attack on the Syrian installations and used the cover of the Il-20 to hide from Syrian defenses. The Israelis will no doubt ignore any criminal charges brought by Russia just as the American government is above the law and ignores the International Criminal Court.
