a deadly response from israeli fighter jets syria says its allies drone was near the israeli border on a standard intelligence mission but israel disagrees it has released this unverified video which it says shows the drone in israeli airspace next they say it followed the drone across the syrian border and shot it down and then launched fighter jets like these to strike the drones base inside syria that triggered a syrian response the regime unleashed its anti-aircraft guns on the israeli fighter planes and it brought down an f. sixteen jet which crashed dramatically into northern israeli countryside the israeli air force says its pilot was seriously wounded after making an emergency exit. israel then responded with another large scale bombing raid it hit syrian government positions near damascus just days ago israel declared itself ready for a standoff like this on tuesday israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu stood at
the northern border in israeli occupied golan heights and delivered a warning. we seek peace but are prepared for any scenario and i wouldn't suggest anyone test us. israel's military has now been tested this is the first loss of one of its jets in syria and the rhetoric is escalating on both sides syrian government forces have warned israel it's quote terrorism will face a severe response from now on israel's reaction syria is playing with fire. and i know our we're joined by our middle east correspondent tanya in jerusalem tanya great to see you let's dive into this very complicated situation so syria has denied that its ally iran drone entered the israeli air space how serious is this confrontation between israel and the law and iran in light of the syria situation.
it is one of the most serious situations we have seen in the north of the postie is one very significant one and also from this we decided based on winning to iran that we heard prime minister binyamin netanyahu has been security meetings old day with the army saying that israel will defend itself against any attack and you're tempted by that it's. now is a has made it clear all along that it won't. rain in presence. its borders and the israeli side of the occupied golan heights through in the ukrainian presence or through the opinion backed has been now so what is seen here is on the one side you see a show of strength you know by all sides by is granted by iran by syria but on the other side there also calls for restraint and some of the military experts here in israel saying that all sides do not appear to seek an escalation but of course the
tensions remain and certainly seems like they're bearing their teeth to say the least but israel is now saying it doesn't want an escalation can that really be avoided in light of what's happened. what i mean is it has always said that it doesn't want to see a presence of iran in the area now what is so they have said really clear lines and they act accordingly so it's what is quite new and the situation i mean is one has carried out in the past many as two acts against his positions or against and weapon transfers or other locations in syria over the past years during the war in syria but usually there was not much of this one's from the assad regime now the response now has been quite strong and that's the new thing over here which creates all the tensions now iran syria the won't they say we won't no longer
tolerate. and touring the syrian as space so this is where of course all the coalition lies and the tensions allying here tanya premis for us in jerusalem thank you very much. now to some of the other stories making news around the world at least eighteen people have been killed and dozens more injured in hong kong after a double decker bus crashed in a city suburb emergency workers hurried to pull passengers from the wreck the bus appears to have skidded and hit a lamp post the driver has been arrested on charges of negligence. protesters have rallied in the thai capital bangkok calling on the country's military rulers to step down and not postpone an election planned for later this year the military seized power in thailand in a coup in twenty fourteen and has postponed elections several times. demonstrators have gathered in the central italian city of to send an anti-racist
