    Beirut - The Syrian air force said Tuesday it has shot down an Israeli jet following the missile attack by the Jewish State on military outposts near Damascus. In a statement the air force said it also shot down one of the Israeli missiles.

    The others reportedly fell on military sites, causing material damage.

    Israel has not confirmed either the air raid in Syria or the loss of a jet. Israeli media report the Syrian military as saying Israel attacked a weapons depot at an army base near Al-Katifa, in eastern Damascus. The same source says jets and ground-to-ground missiles were employed in the attack. The Syrian opposition website Qasioun claims the operation was conducted by four planes travelling through Lebanese air space.
