The US military forces have gunned down another drone on Tuesday midnight near the Jordan border. The drone was described as a Shahed 129, an Iranian model that was launched in 2012. It has a range of 2,000 km and is capable of carrying ammunitions. The US military officials said that it threatened the US coalition forces on the ground and an F-15 plane downed the drone in the north-east of Tanf.

It is the second incident after the US shot down a Su-22 Syrian bomber plane on Sunday that was reportedly dropping bombs on the US coalition forces. Another similar incident was reported earlier this month.

The repercussions that led to making the situation worse

The incident is of great concern in the current political scenario. It clearly showcases the growing Tension in the region as a clash develops between the major forces over the control of Eastern Syria. After the drone was shot down on Tuesday, Russians made an announcement that the US coalition warplanes will be tracked and targeted flying west to the river Euphrates.

It suspended the possibility of the hotline set up or any other communication between the US and Russian forces to avoid further clashes in the war zone. Adding fuel to the situation, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister gave a statement on Tuesday accusing the US to secretly help the terrorists in Syria.

The tensions are growing between the US and Russia. After the air attacks, there is increased tension between the US and Iran as well.

IS leader Binali killed by US airstrike last month

The military activities are on the rise in the area after the air attack by US forces that killed the Islamic State (IS) mastermind Turki al-Binali.

Binali was originally from Bahrain and joined IS in 2014. He played a significant role as a religious leader and was a popular official in the Islamic group providing guidance to its leaders and militants. He was killed in the air strike on 31st May and his death was confirmed by the IS in an online video. The news was supported by the US military officials too.

After his death, IS is under immense pressure over fights of succession to control the territory. Iran claimed it attacked the IS terrorists in eastern Syria with long-range missiles. Iranian-backed Syrian forces are pushing forward on many fronts while the US is building up a resistance against the increasing Iranian interference.

The war game continues

The situation is tensed and US foreign ministry should take calculated steps in deciding the next course of actions. Syria continues to be the scapegoat for the political war games between the larger countries. The condition of the locals is not even close to being normal and the future is uncertain.
