Russia issues warning after US coalition downs jet: Unidentified flying objects west of Euphrates will be considered targets

Russia has warned the US-led coalition fighting in Syria that it will view its aircraft as targets, after a Syrian military plane was shot down.

The coalition said it had shot down the Syrian Su-22 after it bombed US-backed fighters in Raqqa province on Sunday.

Russia, Syria's main ally, said it was also halting communications with the US aimed at preventing air incidents.

Syria condemned America's "flagrant attack", saying it would have "dangerous repercussions".

"Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition operating west of the Euphrates river, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets," the Russian defence ministry said.

It denied the US had used a communications channel before the Su-22 fighter bomber was downed.
