Russian fighter jets have intercepted Israeli warplanes that were flying over southern Syria, media reports say.

According to Russian publication Avia.Pro, Russia’s warplanes intercepted the Israeli warplanes that had been seeking to attack the T-4 Airbase in Syria's western province of Homs last week.

According to the report, two Russian Su-35 fighters took off from the Hmeimim Airbase in Syria's western coastal province of Latakia to intercept the Israeli warplanes.

Israel has carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria, including in the Golan Heights, most of them against what the Tel Aviv regime claims to be the positions of pro-Syrian forces.

The Syrian military has mostly repelled the Israeli strikes, shooting down most of the incoming rockets.

In early 2018, Syria targeted and shot down at least one Israeli F-16 that had intruded into its airspace

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have wondered just how long Putin will put up with this nonsense, before he does something substantial; at the moment, he seems to be content with deflecting Israeli bombs, which were intended for targeting Syria.

But I cannot believe that he will not take a harder stance, at some point in the near future, against Israeli government impudence in this area.
