Jerusalem- Tuesday, a Syrian fighter jet was shot down in the Israel airspace. For the first time in a quarter of a century a Syrian fighter jet flew into Israel's airspace then was soon after shot down by Israel's military. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, A military spokes person say it was a Russian made Sukhoi warplane, this jet flew into the airspace at approximately 9:15 AM. Israel said that they knew Syria was not trying to attack, but they can not allow other planes to fly in their air space. People are now concerned that it will become into a war because of their violent past.
I that this was totally that was uncalled for. They even knew that it was not an attack but they shot anyways. I mean if i was driving an airplane I could easily fly into someones airspace on accident. In this article they said nothing saying they gave the plane warning that they would shoot it. Because they did this things may get worse between them.
We should care about this because how do we know there will not be a war? Also, if they got in a war we would have to provide aid to Israel because were allies with them. Then we would have to send troops over their that do not need to be over there. It also might cause the U.S. to be in more debit. Also if we get involved Syria might want to attack us.
