Russia Continues To Pound Rebel-Held Areas While Claims Of Regime-ISIS Collaboration Near Aleppo Circulate

The Russian Ministry of Defence claimed today that one of their fighters has approached a US Air Force aircraft to within visual range over Syria.

Russia's state-owned RT reported that Major General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the MOD, said that a Russian Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter had identified the aircraft as American. 

The general said that on October 10 a Su-30SM fighter jet securing airspace in the zone of operations against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Aleppo province detected radiation emitted from an unidentified aircraft and approached it to identify the bogie.

A Russian pilot estimated the distance between the aircraft as 2-3km.

After establishing visual contact with the US aircraft, the Su-30SM rejoined the task force group to continue the mission.
