Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters that his nation will "continue to act against the entrenchment of the Iranian military in Syria" despite Russia's decision to supply Syria with the S-300 system.

Before boarding a plane to NY at Ben-Gurion International Airport Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed Israel's "great success" over the last three years in the face of Iran's aggression in the region and vowed to continue doing whatever it takes to protect Israel's security.

The Israeli military has denied responsibility for the downing of the Russian jet, insisting Sunday that Israeli jets did not hide behind other aircraft and that they were in Israeli airspace when the Russian plane was downed.

The Russian military aircraft was downed by Syrian government missile defence systems, killing all 15 people on board. Moscow has tried to maintain good relations with Iran, which is also allied with the Syrian government, and Israel, which is wary of Iran's growing influence in Syria. "We will do what is necessary to defend the security of Israel", he said.
