Russia threatens to end coordination with US over downed airplane in syriaRussia said it is ending logistical military coordination with the United States and threatened to shoot down any aircraft west of the Euphrates River after the U.S. Navy shot down a Syrian regime jet.

The "deconfliction" communication agreement between Washington, D.C., and Moscow was previously established to avoid problematic encounters while aircraft operated above Syrian territory.

The U.S.-led international coalition fighting the Islamic State on Sunday said it shot down a Syrian regime fighter jet because it was attacking the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces militia near Tabqah. The SDF is leading the ground offensive in Syria to capture the Islamic State's stronghold of Raqqa.
