Israel shot down a Syrian fighter jet over the Golan Heights Tuesday, the army said, indicating that it had crossed the cease-fire line into the Israeli-occupied sector.The downing came just three weeks after Israel shot down a drone over the Golan as heavy fighting raged on the Syrian side, most of which has been seized by rebels fighting to overthrow President Bashar Assad.Some 510 square kilometres of the Golan remain on the Syrian side of the cease-fire line, with U.N. forces overseeing a buffer zone stretching some 70 kilometres (45 miles) from Lebanon in the north to Jordan in the south.
