The pilots, one of whom was in severe condition with abdominal injuries, were evacuated to Haifa's Rambam Hospital.

Ally of the Syrian regime it helps militarily, Russia on Saturday called all parties to "restraint" and considered "absolutely unacceptable" to endanger the lives of Russian soldiers present in Syria.

During the call, Netanyahu had also reassured Putin that military co-ordination between their countries would continue.

The intrusion of the drone is "the most flagrant and serious violation of Israeli sovereignty by Iran in recent years, which is why the Israeli response is so strong", said Lieutenant-Colonel Conricus.

Meanwhile, Syrian media reported later on Saturday that explosions were heard near the capital Damascus, as the Syrian air defense responded to "new Israeli aggression".

Saturday marked the first time that Israel lost an aircraft in a combat situation since 2006, when an Israeli Yasour (Sikorsky CH-53) helicopter was shot down over Lebanon. "Iran only provides military advice to Syria", Iranian TV quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying.

Russian Federation has expressed concern and called for calm after Israeli missile strikes struck 12 Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria, including an aerial defence system.

The drone entered Israeli airspace at 4:50 a.m. local time Saturday after being tracked by the Israeli military from its launch from the Iranian T-4 command center near Palmyra, Syria, Conricus said.

"The Israeli enemy has resumed aggression on some military positions in the southern region and our air defenses have responded to them and thwarted the aggression", Syrian military said in a statement.

"Our air defense systems responded to missiles fired by the Israeli enemy air force from over Lebanese territory on a military outpost in Damascus countryside and destroyed a lot of them", an army statement said.

"Today's developments mean the old equations have categorically ended", the group said in an official statement. The Israeli army released images on Twitter yesterday night showing what it said was the Iranian drone. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor of the seven-year civil war, said the earlier Israeli raids had targeted several military bases in the east of the central province of Homs.

The military says it has the drone in its possession.

The F-16 crashed in northern after facing heavy anti-aircraft counter fire from.

Syria said its air defences repelled two Israeli raids on its military bases in the centre of the country, hitting more than one warplane during the first.

According to Kuperwasser, Moscow is "being used by the Iranians", securing Assad regime bases while Tehran continues to strengthen their hold in Syria.

The Iranian side denied the Israeli story, stressing that no Iranian drone had entered the Israeli airspace.

A second pilot was lightly injured while abandoning the aircraft. The aircraft met "massive Syrian anti-air fire", Conricus said, and the F16 crashed afterwards in the Jezreel valley in northern Israel.

As the Israeli planes came under attack, two F-16 pilots chose to eject, and their plane crashed in Israel's Galilee region, Conricus said.
