US Responds to Russian Warning in Syria

The United States claims that the Syrian jet dropped bombs on us -allied Syrian forces. A "hotline" for Russian and USA military officials to talk about activity within the zones was established in 2015. Analysts say that more robust U.S. military action in Syria since President Donald Trump took office in January has resulted from his decision to give the military more autonomy in how it pursues the war on Islamic State.

"The escalation of hostility among all the factions that are operating there doesn't help anybody", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday.

An American F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down the SyrianSU-22 as it "dropped bombs near SDF fighters" south of the town of Tabqa, the coalition said in a statement.Russia's defence minister said the pilot ejected "above IS-controlled territories" and that his fate is unknown.

The United States insisted on Monday it wants no broader role in Syria's civil war, and seeks only to destroy the Islamic State group, but the weekend incident shows the limits of America's ability to stay disengaged.

Washington hasn't provided enough details on the post-war policy in Syria but as of the moment, fighting Assad isn't one of them.

President Donald Trump has ordered stepped-up military operations against Islamic State and delegated more authority to his generals, but without a comprehensive Syria strategy, his approach risks further confrontation with Syria, Iran and even Russian Federation, according to USA officials and analysts.

If Moscow is not bluffing, we could be headed for U.S.

US forces tangled previously on this month with Syria-allied aircraft in the region. And until now the overarching United States guiding principle has been to avoid such direct conflict with Assad forces on the ground - at almost all costs.

"The shooting down of a Syrian Air Force jet in Syria's airspace is a cynical violation of Syria's sovereignty".

Russia, a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, called on the US military to provide a full accounting as to why it made a decision to shoot down the Syrian Su-22 bomber.

What will the United States do after ISIS is defeated in Syria?

Their advance prompted the Syrian government and its allies to step up their operations in the two provinces. The Syrian government insisted the Su-22 was carrying out a mission against ISIS.

The Syrian plane was shot down by a U.S. Navy fighter jet after attempting to bomb U.S. -allied coalition forces, according to the U.S. military.

Sillo also warned that if "the regime continues in its offensive against our positions in Raqqa province, this will force us to retaliate with force".

US -backed opposition fighters said Assad's forces have been attacking them in the northern province of Raqqa and warned that if such attacks continue, the fighters will take action.

And it has demanded a full account of why the U.S. military shot down a Syrian SU-22 on Sunday.

It's believed to be the first time in nine years that "a US combat aircraft has shot down a manned enemy aircraft in aerial combat", The Aviationist reports. "The Coalition does not try to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them".

That was the same reason given for launching three airstrikes against forces loyal to Assad in the town of Tanf, farther south along the Iraqi-Syrian border, where USA forces train Syrian rebels at a small military base.
