Russia warns it will shoot down US planes after Syria military hit

Russia warns that it will treat all US coalition aircraft west of the Euphrates River in Syria as “airborne targets” after a US fighter jet shot down a Syrian warplane.

Russia’s Defence Ministry announced that it was ending US-Russian co-operation in Syria that had been designed to prevent a direct conflict between the great powers.

“Repeated military actions by US aircraft against the lawful armed forces of a United Nations member state, under the guise of a ‘fight against terrorism,’ are a profound violation of international law and, in fact, military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic,” the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement.

“As a result of the strike, the Syrian plane was destroyed. The Syrian pilot catapulted into an area controlled by Islamic State terrorists. His fate is unknown.”

The US military confirmed a US F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian SU-22 on Sunday, after it dropped bombs near the US partner forces known as the Syrian Democratic Forces. SDF fighters are aligned with the Americans in the campaign against the Islamic State group.

Russia has been a staunch supporter of Syria’s beleaguered President Bashar Assad and has been providing an air cover for his offensive against IS since 2015.

Earlier Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov compared the downing to “helping the terrorists that the US is fighting against.”

the threat is real..

australia has stopped its flights..and today the usa shot down a syrian drone..the powder keg is just waiting for the spark..

“As a result of the strike, the Syrian plane was destroyed. The Syrian pilot catapulted into an area controlled by Islamic State terrorists. His fate is unknown.”

i think the pilot would be better off going down with the plane than being caught by those freaks..

  1. I think this is one of the clearest violations in the war. Always an excuse, but how will the U.S. excuse this one away? Syria, Russia, and SDF are fighting against ISIS; the U.S. is supposed to be also. The violation, including shooting down the Syrian drone, is like being on the ground in a battle fight and somebody who is supposed to be watching your back, instead shoots you in the back. Terrible.

  2. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.
