- No injuries but US military says drone ‘posed a threat to our forces’
- Spokesman says such strikes will take focus away from fighting Isis
The United States has shot down a pro-Syrian government drone that opened fire on US-led coalition forces in Syria, a military spokesman said, in a major escalation of tensions between Washington and troops supporting Damascus.
No one was hurt in the incident, which occurred near the coalition’s At-Tanaf garrison, coalition spokesman Colonel Ryan Dillon told Pentagon reporters.
