US military shoots down Syrian pro-government drone: The pro-Syrian government armed drone had been flying near to a de-confliction zone in the country’s south-east, which is close to the Jordanian and Iraqi borders.

According to a US military spokesman this was for the first time that pro-Syrian government units had attacked US-led coalition forces.

No coalition forces casualties or injuries have been reported.

The incident had occurred near the al-Tanf border crossing, between Syria and Iraq, which has become a new flashpoint in the conflict.

According to US Col Ryan Dillon even if the drone had only been firing a warning shot, “it was something that showed a hostile intent, a hostile action and posed a threat to our forces because this drone had munitions that were still on it”.

The reports can’t confirm that which armed element fighting for the Syrian government was operating the drone.

However it is estimated that this will result in another escalation and can potentially push pro-Assad forces to directly engage with US.

In the previous moth US lead coalition forces aircraft had bombed Pro-Assad forces.

Syrian and Iranian-backed militiamen were reportedly moving towards the base, which is used by rebel fighters and Western special forces personnel.
