United States downing of Assad aircraft ups tensions with Russian Federation in Syria

Russian Federation has threatened to treat United States coalition aircraft as targets in Syria, according to The Washington Post.

Coalition aircraft conducted a show of force and stopped the initial pro-regime advance toward the SDF-controlled town.

On Sunday evening, a Syrian regime SU-22 fighter dropped bombs near US -backed Syrian Democratic Forces fighters south of Tabqah in Syria and, in accordance with rules of engagement, was immediately shot down by a U.S. F/A-18E Super Hornet.
