When coalitions led by three #Nuclear Forces collide, things are bound to get serious. That's exactly what is happening in Syria these days. On the one hand, we have the U.S. backing up the rebels and on the other, we have Russia and Iran supporting President Bashar al-Asad. Just from the mere look of this situation, it is kind of obvious that conflict is inevitable.

What stirred up the conflict?

Last week it was the fourth time in less than a month that there has been conflict between the coalition led by the U.S .and the Syrian government forces. The US shooting down of a Syrian warplane is just one of the many incidents that threaten to spread the conflict to the whole region and even further.

American military officials said on Sunday that it was Syrian government forces that first attacked the village of Jadin, near Raqqa. Apparently, in the attack, they wounded the members of Syrian Democratic Forces who are important U.S. allies in the battle against the Islamic state.

The U.S. Army allegedly tried to contact the Syrian warplane, an SU-22 that started bombing the rebels without a warning, but there was no response they shot down the plane.

The coalition led by the U.S. already battled the Asad army in the southeastern part of the Syria, especially near Al Tanf region, close to the Iraq border. After those conflicts, the U.S. stated that they don't want to fight the Syrian regime or Russia but they won't hesitate to defend the coalition and their partners from any kind of threat.

The conflict goes even deeper

Given all that has been said, it seems as though U.S., Russia, and Iran are going deep into further conflicts. After U.S. forces shot down the Syrian warplane, Russian officials stated they will monitor all the planes that fly west of Euphrates and will consider them to be potential targets.

On the other hand, the U.S. stated that they will not withhold from placing their planes all over the Syrian sky to enforce security in their operations against the Islamic state and that they will defend themselves if the Russians attack.

"Pentagon spokesman, Major Adian Rankine Galloway, said the US had taken "prudent measures to re-position aircraft over Syria" to avoid conflict" and "The Coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend Coalition or partner forces from any threat," DW Made for Minds reported.

Iran's involvement

Just when it seemed that events in Syria couldn't get more complicated than this, Iran decided to step in.

Iran attacked the extremists of the Islamic State in Syria with a ballistic missile. The Commander of Revolutionary Gard Ramazan Sharif has stated that local sources, as well as a drone recording, confirmed that the missile hit the target.

Sharif also said that this attack happened as retribution for a terrorist attack in Teheran that happened earlier this month where 18 people have died. However, experts claim that Iran is trying to warn U.S., Saudi Arabia, and Israel because of their apparent involvement with Suni terrorists of the Islamic state.

Tthe American public is concerned about the conflict between the U..S and Iran especially after it was reported that White House officials want to enlarge the number of their troops in Syria in order to confront Iran. #Syrian Civil War #War In Syria
