The day after the exchange, the Russian government summoned the Israeli ambassador, Gary Koren, and demanded an explanation for the mission.
A senior army officer said on Monday that Israel had fired its Arrow missile at a Syrian rocket which posed a "ballistic threat" during clashes over the weekend. For most of the Syrian civil war, Israel has watched from the sidelines, except for occasional strikes against Hezbollah weapons shipments that it says could be strategic game changers in the balance of power. "The Syrians must understand that they are held responsible for these arms transfers to Hezbollah and that if they continue to allow them then we will do what we have to do". Hezbollah claims that the attacks by Israel were in defense of ISIS in the region. Israel Defense Force officials do not believe that the launch of the SA-5 missile was deliberately carried out in this manner, but noted that over time, the systems identified the threat as ballistic and the decision was therefore taken to intercept it. Should Israel be allowed to intervene to prevent Hezbollah from being armed?
