Russia condemns US for shooting down Syrian warplane

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Moscow (dpa) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov condemned the United States on Monday for shooting down a Syrian warplane.

"This strike can be regarded as another act of defiance of international law by the United States," Ryabkov said in comments carried by state news agency TASS.

Russia, which entered the Syrian civil war in 2015 to support the beleaguered regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a long-time ally, has claimed that the US involvement in the war without the regime‘s permission violates international law.

The US, which provides air support to rebel forces, has accused al-Assad‘s regime of committing crimes against humanity, including killing civilians.

The US said that on Sunday a US F/A-18E Super Hornet fighter jet shot down a Syrian regime Su-22.

The Su-22, a Russian-made warplane, had attacked a town held by the US coalition-aligned Syrian Democratic Forces, "wounding a number of SDF fighters and driving the SDF from the town," the US coalition‘s press service told dpa.

The US coalition, whose mission is to defeat the terrorist group Islamic State, "does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat," the US coalition said in emailed comments.
