Australia to resume airstrikes against ISIS in Syria amid threats from Russian Federation

The coalition shot down Iranian-made Shahed-129, belonging to the Syrian #Air Force, near the At-Tanf area, the channel said.

USA officials said it remained uncertain as to who was operating the drones - Whether it was Shiite militia fighters, Syrian officers or Iranian advisers.

This is not the first time the US -led coalition shut down a regime drone.

The U.S. -led coalition fighting the Islamic State group said a U.S. F-15 fighter jet shot down the drone "after it displayed hostile intent" while approaching a military camp near the Syria-Jordan border.

On June 8, the US shot down a drone that had fired on coalition forces near At Tanf.

The U.S. military shot down the Syrian warplane on Sunday, saying it had targeted an American-allied, Kurdish-led force that is battling the IS extremists in their de facto capital, Raqqa.

In an indirect reference to Iranian-backed forces that have been gathering in the eastern desert region, the coalition statement cited a recent escalation of tensions and said it would not "tolerate any hostile intent and action of pro-regime forces".

Operations were suspended earlier this week, after a United States fighter jet shot down a Syrian warplane.

Moscow has now suspended a hotline meant to prevent confrontations in Syria s crowded air space, and warned it could consider US-led coalition planes "targets".

Moscow said it was suspending an incident hotline set up two years ago and warned that it would consider global aircraft operating in central Syria "aerial targets". That's a questionable line of argument, particularly as unlike the recent strikes around al-Tanf, there's no indication that there was a USA troop presence nearby-only Kurdish SDF forces.

There are tensions long running between the United States and Russian Federation that erupted on Monday publicly as Moscow condemned the downing of American military's of a Syrian warplane and threatened to aim aircraft flown by the United States and its allies.

"The Syrian regime ... needs to understand that we will keep the right of self-defense of coalition forces aligned against ISIS", he said.

Australia will soon resume airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria after a temporary suspension due to threats against United States and coalition missions from Russian Federation. "If you look back at the logs that we put out fortnightly, you'll see that all out operations were in support of the retaking of Mosul", he said on Thursday. The Iranian-made drones can be armed or used for reconnaissance.

The global coalition led by the United States was hit by Syrian drones, CNN reported. Among US coalition members, Australia is carrying out one of the highest levels of airstrikes in both countries, though naturally they are all far fewer than US strikes.
