The U.S. military has repeatedly warned forces fighting on Assad's side to stay away from a "deconfliction zone", agreed with Russian Federation, near a garrison used by U.S. Special Forces and U.S. -backed militia around Al-Tanf, near the border with Jordan.

Australian warplanes will soon resume airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria after operations were suspended as a precaution because a USA fighter jet shot down a Syrian warplane earlier this week, the defense chief said Wednesday.

Beirut- The Syrian scene lately witnessed several escalatory messages exchanged between the US, Russia and Iran, pushing Washington on Tuesday to call for more troops to al-Tanf military camp in the southeast of Syria as the US-led International Coalition succeeded to down an Iranian-made drone operated by the regime.

"ADF force protection is regularly reviewed in response to a range of potential threats", the Defence statement said. USA commanders have twice bombed convoys that entered an exclusion zone around a border town where American advisers are based and they have destroyed a drone.

An American fighter jet downed an "Iranian-made" drone in southern Syria Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

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".

"Given recent events, the coalition will not allow pro-regime aircraft to threaten or approach in close proximity to coalition and partnered forces", it said.


Two days earlier, an American FA-18 shot down a Syrian SU-22 warplane that had dropped bombs near American-backed fighters combating the Islamic State. That Syrian aircraft had dropped bombs near the SDF south of the city of Tabqah. Yesterday, the USA coalition announced that it had shot down a Syrian regime plane which was bombing predominantly Kurdish SDF positions. "We want to de-escalate, not escalate", Davis said. Russian Federation previously closed its end of the line for a period of time after the US bombed the Syrian Shayrat airbase in April in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack against Syrian civilians, including children, in the town of Khan Sheikhoun.

On Sunday, the U.S. shot down a Syrian warplane for the first time, prompting Russian Federation to issue a threat to coalition aircraft flying west of the River Euphrates, saying they "will be considered air targets".

Russian Federation reacted angrily to the USA shootdown of the Syrian jet, which the Pentagon said was dropping bombs near the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, a mixed Kurdish-Arab militia fighting Islamic State.

"Trump has not delivered on his promise for better relations with Moscow and the Congress is moving towards expanding sanctions against Russia", West said. The Syrian fighter bomber shot down Sunday violated another exclusion zone around the forces surrounding Raqqa.

"The coalition presence in Syria addresses the imminent threat ISIS in Syria poses globally".

In a recent statement, the US military arrogated to itself the right to control the strategic area, placing multiple rocket launcher systems at the base and warning that it would not "tolerate any hostile intent and action of pro-regime forces", a stance raising concerns of further aggression from USA forces unlawfully stationed in the Arab country.

Australian Defense Force Chief Mark Binskin said operations were halted while the Australians examined what was happening in what he had described as a "complex piece of airspace" over Syria.
