This resulted in an IAF retaliation, firing at the anti-aircraft battery, located 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Damascus.
In a conference call with The Israel Project, which publishes The Tower, Ephraim Segoli, a retired IAF general, now with the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies, said that the unsuccessful Syrian attack against the Israeli planes was something "unique" that Israel might have to address.

"We know according to our intelligence it was a battery controlled by the Syrian regime and we hold the Syrian regime responsible for the fire", Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus said. In a departure from its usual practice of allowing such flights to pass without response, this time the Syrians shot at least one missile at the planes.
