    Russia’s Defense Ministry contradicts ‘ungrateful’ Israel’s account of incident in which 15 Russian airmen were killed, reveals op to locate remains of Israeli MIAs in ISIS-held Syria.
    Russia’s Defense Ministry on Sunday formally blamed Israel for the downing of the Russian aircraft last week over Syria, accusing the Israeli military of “criminal negligence.”

    In a report detailing the circumstances surrounding the incident, Russia accused Israel of deliberately misleading Russia on its planned airstrikes, preventing the downed plane from moving to a safe place on time.

    The Israeli military denied the claims later on Sunday, saying that mechanisms to coordinate with Russia were used properly prior to the downing of the plane and that Russian officers were given “full, precise and factual details.”

    “The presented objective data indicates that the actions of the Israeli fighter pilots which led to the loss of the life of 15 Russian servicemen lacked professionalism and were an act of criminal negligence to say the least. Therefore we believe that the blame for the tragedy of the Russian Ilyushin-20 lies entirely with the Israeli air force and those who made the decision to carry out such actions,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.
