US Shoots Down Iranian Drone in Syria

On several occasions in recent weeks, warplanes of the US-led coalition have also struck pro-regime forces to prevent them advancing from the Al Tanf garrison in southeastern Syria at a spot where the country's borders join Iraq and Jordan. The decision came amid increasing tension between the US and Russian Federation, which warned it would track coalition aircraft in Syria as potential "targets", and halted a military hotline with Washington over the incident.

The staunch U.S. ally in September said it would widen the scope of targets in the air war against IS by allowing its pilots to strike jihadist support and logistics resources in Iraq and Syria.

These battles are critical for Syria's future, Abdullah said, noting they will force the U.S.to negotiate with the Assad government. Neither official could say for sure whether either of the two drones that the US has shot down in southern Syria flew out of that base, but both said it was likely.

Turkey and the Kurdish fighters have come to blows on a few occasions in recent months, leading USA forces to establish a buffer between them.

The incident marks an escalation in the area around At Tanf, a base manned by coalition forces supporting an anti-ISIS Syrian rebel group. The drone, roughly the size of a U.S. Predator unmanned aerial vehicle, was armed and within range of striking U.S. -led coalition troops and their Syrian allies, the official said, who said the strike was in "self-defense". But weeks later, the Russian and USA militaries continued to use the hotline, with the number of calls increasing, American officials said.

More than 320,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began in March 2011 with anti-government protests before spiraling into a war that has drawn in jihadists and foreign powers.

Weeks after President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian military forces to Syria in September 2015 to prop up the regime of President Bashar Assad, Russia and the USA signed a memorandum on preventing air incidents between the two countries.

Sunday's downing of a regime jet prompted the Russian ministry of defense to announce that it would suspend the de-confliction hotline with the coalition, which is created to prevent any accidents in the skies over Syria.

Guard spokesman Gen. Ramazan Sharif told The Associated Press on Tuesday the force's "local sources and drone films say that all the six missiles the Guard launched hit their targets".

"I think we're getting closer and closer to open conflict with Iran and Russian Federation, and the American public needs to know that we're moving very fast toward what could be another war inside the Middle East", Murphy told anchor Alisyn Camerota on CNN's "New Day", "something by the way that Donald Trump promised he wouldn't do when he ran for office".

Israeli security officials said Monday they were studying the missile strike to see what they could learn about its accuracy and capabilities.

Washington also described those strikes as self-defence.

In another first, Iran - another close ally of President Assad - fired ballistic missiles at Isis targets in the province of Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria later on Sunday.
