point of order

but for IDF undisuputed invasion of Syrian air space for the express purpose of destroying an SAA installation at Latakia,

  1. SAA would not have fired anti-aircraft munitions in the flight path of a Russian Ilyushin Il-20M Coot;
  2. Russian Ilyushin Il-20M Coot would not be destroyed;
  3. and I would not be answering the question, Why friendly fire is a ludicrous cover story (to exculpate Israeli responsibility for the deaths of 14 Russian and unnumbered SSA casualties).

Russia, USA, Israel, Iran and Syria: a continuous struggle to trigger or avoid war
Posted on 18/09/2018 by Elijah J Magnier
Simultaneously with the downing of the Russian plane, four Israeli F-16s attacked Syrian and Iranian military targets around the northern city of Latakia. The Syrian air defence system responded against the incoming missiles and hit the Russian plane while in landing position over the Hamymeen military airport.
"the day after an Israeli F-16 destroyed an Iranian military cargo plane on the Damascus airport runway"
