Russia Blasts US For Shooting Down Syrian Warplane

Russia's defense ministry says it will treat USA -led coalition planes in Syria, west of the Euphrates River, as targets after the us military shot down a Syrian Air Force jet on Sunday.

Earlier, the Russian military alleged that "the command of the coalition forces did not use the established communication channel for preventing incidents in Syrian airspace".

WASHINGTON/BEIRUT: Russia on Monday warned it would track US-led coalition aircraft in Syria as potential "targets" and halted an incident-prevention hotline with Washington after United States forces downed a Syrian jet.

"Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the worldwide coalition operating west of the Euphrates River", said the Russian defense ministry, "will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets".

On the weekend, a US Navy F-18 shot down a Syrian SU-22 fighter bomber that had bombarded rebel Syrian Democratic Forces, who are US allies and who are participating in the allied offensive to liberate Raqqa from the IS. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.

It was the first time an American fighter jet has shot down a Syrian aircraft in the civil war, with USA officials saying the action was taken to defend Washington-allied forces in the area.

The prior deconfliction arrangement was set up in 2015 "to avoid mid-air collisions in Syria as both sides fight militant groups", and was broken on Sunday when American forces brought down a Syrian jet. In April, after the United States missile strike on a Syrian airbase, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Russia would suspend the 2015 agreement aimed at minimizing risks of in-flight incidents.

Moscow says it will "target" USA coalition aircraft in the west of Syria's Euphrates River after United States downed a Syrian jet.

The Pentagon statement added: "The demonstrated hostile intent and actions of pro-regime forces toward Coalition and partner forces in Syria conducting legitimate counter-Isis (IS) operations will not be tolerated".

Iran's launch of its ballistic missiles against IS hit Syria's eastern city of Deir el-Zour on Sunday night and was its first such strike in the conflict.

The Defense Ministry's response doesn't mean there'll be war with the US, though it's a "pretty serious" signal that Russian Federation won't accept acts of aggression against Syria, said Frants Klintsevich, deputy head of the defense committee in Russia's upper house of parliament.
