In a recent development, the U.S. Air Force has unveiled a video capturing what they claim to be Russian jets engaging in provocative behavior towards drones during a mission aimed at combating the terror organization ISIS.

In a daring move, the Russians strategically deployed flares in the trajectory of the drones, compelling them to swiftly alter their course in order to ensure their own safety. According to reports, the flares have been securely fastened to parachutes.

In a recent incident, an unmanned aircraft faced operational challenges as another jet activated its afterburners, creating a hazardous environment for the operation.

In a recent statement, 2Lt. Gen. Alex Grynkewich, the commander of the 9th Air Force in the Middle East, revealed that a concerning incident occurred over northwest Syria. According to Grynkewich, three United States drones were conducting a mission against the Islamic State terrorist group after 10:30 a.m. local time when they were subjected to harassment by three Russian aircraft. According to reports, the drones in question were found to be unarmed and are typically utilized for reconnaissance purposes.

According to Grynkewich, it has been reported that a Russian pilot took action by maneuvering their SU-35 aircraft to position it in front of a drone. Subsequently, the pilot activated the afterburner, a mechanism known to significantly enhance the speed and air pressure of the aircraft. According to Grynkewich, the jet blast emanating from the afterburner has the potential to cause damage to the electronics of the Reaper. Additionally, he mentioned that this phenomenon has a negative impact on the drone operator’s ability to safely control the aircraft.

According to a statement made by an official, Russian military aircraft have been involved in unsafe and unprofessional conduct during their interactions with U.S. aircraft in Syria. The official expressed concern over the potential risks posed to both U.S. and Russian forces due to these actions. In a statement issued today, we hear a call for action as concerns rise over the behavior of Russian forces in Syria. The plea is made for these forces to put an end to what is being described as reckless behavior and instead align themselves with the expected standards of conduct for a professional air force. The aim behind this appeal is to allow for a shift in focus towards the ongoing mission of defeating ISIS.

In a statement, Army Gen. Erik Kurilla, who serves as the head of U.S. Central Command, expressed concern over Russia’s infringement on the ongoing airspace clearance operations in Syria. Gen. Kurilla emphasized that such actions by Russia heighten the potential for escalation or misjudgment.

Approximately 900 U.S. forces have been deployed to Syria, where they are collaborating with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in their ongoing fight against Islamic State militants. No additional information regarding the drone operation was disclosed.

According to the Air Force, numerous comparable incidents have allegedly been carried out by the Russians in the past few months. The Air Force is urging the Russian military to cease these actions.

In March, according to a report by CBN News, a Russian fighter jet allegedly collided with the propeller of a U.S. surveillance drone over the Black Sea. The United States claimed that this incident constituted a bold breach of international law. Consequently, American forces took action to bring down the unmanned aerial vehicle.

In a statement issued today, Russia adamantly denied any involvement in the reported incident where a MQ-9 Reaper drone was allegedly struck by warplanes. The Russian authorities maintained that their aircraft were not responsible for the incident, refuting any claims suggesting otherwise. According to reports, the drone allegedly executed a sudden maneuver before ultimately plunging into the water. This incident occurred after a confrontation with Russian fighter jets, which had been dispatched to intercept the drone in the vicinity of Crimea.

In a development that has further escalated tensions between Russia and the United States regarding Moscow’s involvement in the conflict in Ukraine, it seems that a U.S. aircraft has been brought down following an encounter with a Russian warplane. This incident marks a significant event, reminiscent of the Cold War era, as it appears to be the first time in recent history that such an incident has occurred.
