Russia says passenger plane nearly shot down by Syrian forces

Syrian forces on Thursday fired anti-aircraft missiles that narrowly missed a passenger plane carrying 172 passengers as it approached Damascus for a landing. The Airbus A320 was traveling from Tehran to Damascus. The plane was diverted to a Russian military base.

So Syria cannot shoot down an Iranian passenger plane, with Iranian missiles. That is kinda sad in a good way.

"Konashenkov accused Israel of using civilian aircraft as cover to block Syrian air defenses from responding to Israeli combat missions, which he said had become a characteristic feature of the Israeli air force." Israel has a pretty professional military, who probably shows the most restraint and care for collateral civilian deaths of any military. That quote sounds quite out of character for them. The quote was coming from Russia though, which is on Syria's side.

In the Syrian skies, every day a civilian plane is only _nearly_ shot down is a good day.
