The Russian military said on Tuesday that the plane was hit by accident by one of the missiles, which were aimed at four Israeli fighter jets that were attacking targets in the coastal province of Latakia late on Monday.

His remarks came just days after Israel targeted a facility in Syria it said was involved in providing weapons to the Iranian-backed Hezbollah, during which a Russian reconnaissance plane was struck by Syrian anti-aircraft fire.

Subsequently, Putin took a telephone conversation from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who reportedly expressed condolences over the deaths of the Russian plane crewmembers, while reiterating Tel Aviv's determination to continue carrying out strikes against targets in Syria that it claims are linked to Iran and Hezbollah.

The Russian military also said the ill-fated plane was used as a cover by the Israeli air force, and that Moscow reserves the right to give a due response.

Russian Federation has largely given Israel permission to strike targets in Syria on the condition that Jerusalem warns Moscow of the attacks. "A Historical Perspective", in which I argued that, in the historic perspective, the Soviet Union, and later Russia, have not been successful in providing the necessary strategic umbrella to their allied radical Arab regimes during their wars against Israel and the Russian weapons systems have suffered disgraceful defeats at the hands of the Israeli military.

"Moscow views as irresponsible and unfriendly actions of Israeli Air Force, which exposed Russian Il-20 aircraft to danger and lead to death of 15 servicemen", the tweet said.

Konashenkov insisted the Israelis "could not but see the Russian plane, which was approaching the runway from an altitude of (3 miles)".

"The Syrian anti-air batteries fired indiscriminately and from what we understand, did not bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air", Manelis' statement said.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Israel against conducting air raids on Syria.

Israel denied the allegations, saying its jets were already back in its airspace when Syrian forces launched the missiles that hit the Russian plane. Russian Federation has said Syria shot the plane down shortly after Israeli jets hit the area, and accused Israel of creating the unsafe conditions by failing to give sufficient advance notice. Israel and Hezbollah fought a brief war on Lebanese soil in 2006. The IDF has worked closely with Russian Federation to ensure that Israel can maintain freedom to maneuver in Syria, focused on diminishing the substantial Iranian support for Hezbollah and defending the Jewish State as necessary. "We will stay until further notice", Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech on Wednesday night, adding, "Our presence there is tied to necessity and to the consent of the Syrian leadership".
