Israel soon sent fighter jets into Syria to attack the T4 military base near the Syrian city of Palmyra, from which the drone supposedly was launched.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran has advisory presence in Syria at the request of the country's legitimate and constitutional government", Qassemi said.
"This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory". The lack of response indicates fear of a sharper and more painful Israeli response, since Israel has complete command of the air over all of southern Syria, and also a Russian demand from Teheran to exercise restraint and avoid escalation. "Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn't know how it will end", Israel's chief military spokesman, Brig. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Russian Federation to intervene and calm tensions on the Israeli-Syrian border.
IAF Brigadier-General Tomer Bar said that the drone, which was shot down in the Beit Shean area on Shabbos, entered Israel via Jordan and did not directly cross the Syrian-Israeli border, adding that the Iranians were trying to outwit the IDF's detection and defense systems.

In a televised statement, Netanyahu said Israel "seeks peace but we will continue to defend ourselves steadfastly against any attack against us or any attempt by Iran to establish itself against us in Syria". The IDF warned Syria and Iran against "violating" its sovereignty by saying that both countries would pay a heavy price if they defy this warning.
Reuters reports that Israel has kicked off implementation of the threat.
Israel's intensive air raids against what it said were Iranian targets inside Syria have ratcheted up regional tensions, as Russian Federation, a key player in Syria's long-running war, urged restraint.
"Iran's calculated escalation of threat and its ambition to project its power and dominance, places all the people of the region - from Yemen to Lebanon - at risk", spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.
Apple AirPod nearly blows up in man's ear
In 2016, Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 after some phones caught fire because of a defect in the batteries. A man in Florida asserts that one of his Apple AirPods started smoking and later detonated.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahran Qasemi, however, described the Israeli claim as "ridiculous".
Iran's expanding clout during Syria's almost seven-year-long war, including deployments of Iran-backed forces near the Golan frontier, has raised alarm in Israel, which has said it would act against any threat from its regional arch-enemy Tehran.
Another sign that today's incident was not happenstance is the statement by Hezbollah, Iran's Lebanese arm, which chose to respond with aggressive language: "The shooting down of the plane is the beginning of a new strategic stage that will restrict Israel's exploitation of Syrian airspace".
On other hand, Lebanon has protested against the use of its airspace by Israel to target Syria. Senior Israeli officials have acknowledged there have been more than 100 airstrikes.
