"Early this morning the IDF plane brought the official Israel delegation to Sochi comprised of representatives of military Rabbinate (chaplains), as well as a team of police investigators who will be involved in the process of bodies identification."
A 21-member Israeli delegation arrived early on Sunday in the Russian Black Sea city of Sochi to aid the investigation into what caused an airliner carrying mostly Russian-born Israeli immigrants to explode in flight, killing 78 people.
The Tupolev 154, en route from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk, exploded and crashed into the Black Sea on Thursday 180 kilometers (114 miles) off the Russian coastal city of Adler, near Sochi.
There have been growing suspicions that it was a mistake by the Ukrainian military that caused the Russian passenger jet, en route to Siberia, to crash.
The Israeli delegation included forensic experts, technicians and three Jewish military chaplains, one of whom carried a large box containing a Torah scroll.
Most of the forensic experts were to help identify the victims, while the rabbis were present to observe Jewish rites surrounding death.
Israel's charge d'affaires in Russia, Arkady Milman, said the Israelis had received exceptional cooperation from Moscow in the investigation effort.
U.S. intelligence officials believe the plane was hit by a Ukrainian S-200, or SA-5, missile, a large surface-to-air missile, during exercises on the Crimean Peninsula, which juts into the Black Sea.
These types of missile are designed to shoot down heavy bombers flying at high altitudes.
More relatives were due to arrive from Israel later on Sunday.
