Russia is the main ally of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, who Israel has repeatedly targeted.
Russia sells arms to Iran and supports the nuclear deal with Tehran – which Israel has vociferously lobbied against.
But Russia and Israel have steered clear of confronting each other.
That changed last Monday, when Syrian government forces mistook a Russian reconnaissance plane for an Israeli jet and shot it down, killing all 15 people aboard.
The Russian Defence Ministry says Israeli fighter jets deliberately used the Russian plane as cover.
The Israeli military insists it’s not to blame – saying it did not ‘hide behind any aircraft’.
So, how will this incident impact the Russia-Israel relationship?
