Part of the Syrian airspace belongs to the US : US F-22 fires flares to ‘warn’ Russian jets in Syria

Russian jets in Syria
An F-22 fighter fired flares to warn Russian planes away from a “deconfliction line” in Syria, US military officials claim.


The incident took place Wednesday, when two Russian Su-25 close air support jets entered a “deconfliction area” east of the Euphrates river, a US military official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. Two US F-22 fighters warned the Russian jets off, firing flares, the source added.

After the encounter, the Russian planes reportedly left the area. The incident also involved at least one Russian Su-35 fighter jet, CNN reported, citing an unidentified US military official.

  1. US fighter planes fired warning flares after Russian jets entered an agreed non-conflict area over Syria, the US defence department says.
    The two Russian Su-25s flew east of the Euphrates River and into US-designated air space on Wednesday, the Pentagon said.
    One of the US F-22 jets was nearly involved in a mid-air collision with a Russian plane, according to the US.
    However, the Russian defence ministry has denied the US account.
    In a statement it said the two Su-25s had been escorting a humanitarian convoy near a town beside the Euphrates when they were approached by the two F-22 jets.
    At the weekend Russian official Igor Konashenkov said he was bewildered the US had staked a claim over part of Syria's air space and accused the US-led coalition of "operating in Syria illegally".

  2. A Su-35 fighter jet, which provided cover for the Russian planes, “rapidly approached” the F-22 from the rear and the US warplane left the area afterward, the ministry added.

    The ministry stressed that the incident occurred above the western bank of the Euphrates River, dismissing media reports that the Russian planes were allegedly operating over the eastern bank.

  3. Though a verbal agreement last month indicated "that the Russians would remain west of the Euphrates River," according to Pahon, Russian jets have flown into coalition airspace in Syria "on the east side of the river six to eight times per day."

  5. L’information du Pentagone sur l’interception des avions d’assaut russes Su-25 par des chasseurs américains ne correspond pas à la réalité, a déclaré la Défense russe...

    «Certains médias américains et britanniques ont pris une nouvelle fois leurs désirs pour la réalité. Le 13 décembre !!!!!????, deux avions d'assaut Su-25 se trouvant à une altitude de 3.300 mètres ont accompagné un convoi humanitaire près de la ville de Mayadine. Un chasseur F-22 s'est approché d'eux depuis la rive gauche de l'Euphrate. Il tirait des leurres à chaleur, il entravait le vol des Su-25», indique un communiqué.

    C’est seulement après l’intervention de l’autre chasseur russe, qui se trouvait à une plus haute altitude, que l’avion américain s'est éloigné.

    «Un chasseur russe Su-35S, qui opérait à 10.000 mètres d'altitude, a avancé rapidement […] vers le F-22, après quoi le chasseur américain a quitté la zone», lit-on dans le communiqué du ministère de la Défense.

    Plus tôt jeudi, le Pentagone a déclaré que deux avions F-22 de l'US Air Force avaient «intercepté» deux Su-25 russes dans le ciel au-dessus de l'Euphrate non-loin d’Abou Kamal

    Selon l'armée américaine, deux avions d'assaut russes ont volé dans l'espace aérien contrôlé par la coalition dirigé par les USA.
