Russia's Defense Ministry said the Israeli warning came less than a minute before the strike, and it accused the Israeli military of using the Russian plane as a cover to dodge Syrian defense systems.
The Israeli Army said Major General Amikam Norkin and other top officers will travel to Moscow to "present the situation report of the event regarding all aspects, including the pre-mission information and the findings of the [Israel Defense Forces] inquiry".
Russian Federation has acknowledged that antiaircraft forces of its ally Syria inadvertently brought down the Il-20 plane, but it also blamed Israel for conducting a fighter jet raid on Syrian forces around the same time.
On Wednesday, Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah said the Shiite movement would stay in Syria "until further notice".
According to Ben Yishai, the incident will not likely affect Israeli military activity in Syria, where Israeli jet fighters have struck Syrian and Iranian targets several times in recent months.
"By hiding behind the Russian plane, Israeli pilots put it in the line of fire", read a ministry statement.
Timely released satellite images have revealed the destruction left by IDF air strikes in Syria's Latakia after Israel was forced to make a rare admission to the raid which resulted in the downing of the Russian Il-20 recon plane.
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Putin in a phone call that the arms warehouse that was targeted was holding "accurate and lethal weapons" that were about to be transferred on behalf of Iran to Hezbollah that were to be used to attack Israel and which pose an "intolerable threat" against the Jewish state.
Israel denied the allegations, saying its jets were already back in its airspace when Syrian forces launched the missiles that hit the Russian plane.
But President Vladimir Putin, who spoke to his Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone on Tuesday, then called it "a chain of tragic chance events" although he added that Russian Federation needed to "seriously get to the bottom of what happened".
It was the worst "friendly fire" incident between Moscow and the Syrian regime since Russian forces intervened in the country in late 2015 to support Assad whose grip on power had been weakened by rebels and jihadist fighters.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says the Tel Aviv regime is to blame for the tragic deaths of over a dozen Russian servicemen aboard an Il-20 surveillance aircraft, which was accidentally shot down by Syrian air defenses while they were responding to a wave of Israeli air raids. "Israel also holds Iran and the Hezbollah terror organization accountable for this unfortunate incident", the army said.
