Netanyahu: Syria jet blatant violation of 1974 agreements, we won't accept it

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday the Syrian fighter jet that infiltrated Israel and was shot down was "a blatant violation of the 1974 separation agreements between us and Syria."


"Our air defense systems identified a Syrian Air Force jet that took off from the T-4 Syrian Air Force base and penetrated Israeli airspace. This is a gross violation of the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement with Syria. I have reiterated and made clear that we will not accept any such violation," he said. 


"We will not accept any such penetration of, or spillover into, our territory, neither on the ground nor in the air. Our forces acted appropriately. We insist that the Syrians strictly abide by the Separation of Forces Agreement between us and them."
