Arab Official Wants to Sue Israel for F-16 Crashing on His Land

In bizarre coincidence, downed F-16 crashed on land owned by aide to Knesset’s most hostile Arab lawmaker

By |

Wouldn't you know it. The Israeli F-16 downed by Syrian anti-aircraft at the weekend crashed on land owned by the parliamentary aide to the most hostile and venomous Arab member of Knesset.

The plane went down near Kibbutz Harduf in the Lower Galillee after being badly damaged during a raid on Iranian military installations in Syria.

The land is reportedly owned by the top aide to MK Hanin Zoabi (Joint Arab List), who has made a career of badmouthing Israel and accusing IDF soldiers of being "murderers."

The aide claimed that the plane crash did extensive damage to his wheat fields, though photos (see above) of the site reveal it is an unused portion of land. No wheat in sight.

Nevertheless, the aide is said to be considering suing the State of Israel for damages.
