Daily Sabah/Wire Services: Suspected pro-Assad regime drone fired on coalition forces, official says
The United States shot down a pro-Syrian regime armed drone that was attacking U.S.-led coalition forces in Syria on Thursday, a U.S. military spokesman said, the first time the regime had attacked coalition forces.
U.S. Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, who is a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition fighting Daesh, said the MQ-1 like armed drone was destroyed after it fired upon coalition forces carrying out a patrol outside a deconfliction zone in southern Syria. Dillon said there were no coalition casualties.
The U.S.-led anti-Daesh coalition also confirmed it struck forces supporting Syria's Bashar Assad, marking the third such incident near a key border town in southern Syria.
