The Russian military has blamed Israel for causing Syrian air defense to shoot down the Russian Il-20 plane while responding to Israeli missile attacks. Israel launched a surprise attack on Syria at night when the Russian plane caught in between. Russia said that Israel must have known about it and that they have set up the whole thing. The Russian plane was patrolling near the Mediterranean sea when it was shot down.
