"It was a tragic event. We all regret this. Netanyahu talked about this the day after. Everyone knows that these were Syrian missiles that shot down the plane and because of which the Russian crew had been killed. We treat it as a tragedy. We created a mechanism for military interaction so that such tragedies did not occur. But unfortunately, no one is insured … In the future, it is important to do everything so that such tragedies do not recur. We will do everything we can for this," Livne told reporters.
Israel has refuted the accusations and insisted that Moscow was warned about the air operation in a timely manner.
