The Wall Street Journal: Russia warns U.S. jets over western Syria will be potential ‘targets’

Tensions between Washington and Moscow escalated on Monday when Russia threatened to track American warplanes in Syria after a U.S. pilot shot down a Syrian jet for the first time in the country’s six-year war.

The U.S. military responded to Moscow’s warnings by shifting the flight routes of some pilots carrying out missions in Syria, U.S. officials said, an effort to minimize risks to American pilots as the White House and the Pentagon both appealed for calm.

Sunday’s U.S. downing of the Syrian regime warplane came as American forces are increasingly at risk of direct confrontation with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies from Russia and Iran.
