A Fox News report says that the Russian plane was a Su-27 jet with two missiles under its wing. The Russian jet was reportedly flying very “erratically.”
This near-miss comes just a day after U.S. forces shot down a Syrian jet. The embattled Syrian regime is aligned with Russia in its ongoing civil war. Russia is now warning the U.S. that it will shoot down any fighters that travel west of the Euphrates.
