Iran has vowed to ‘obliterate’ Israel after the Israeli military retaliated to one of its fighter jets being shot down by Syrian forces.
Iran’s Lieutenant Commander, General Hossein Salami, warned that his country will “open the gates of Hell over Israel,” if they make another move against the Syrian regime.
Daily Star reports: Earlier today an Israeli F16 fighter jet was shot down after coming under fire from Syrian forces.
A spokesman for Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said Syria’s response was “a clear warning to Israel. The era of Israeli strikes on Syria is over.”
He also vowed that his country would respond strongly to “all further aggression” from Israel.
One of the pilots from the downed fighter jet is in a serious condition in hospital.
In response, Israel launched 12 attacks on Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria.
