US Fighter Jet Shoots Down Iranian Drone in Syria

A U.S. jet fighter shot down an Iranian drone in Syria Tuesday.

The drone was approaching a military base where US-backed forces were training partner forces in the fight against ISIS. According to a Pentagon news release, a U.S. F-15 plane intercepted the drone and attempted to divert its course prior to it being shot down.

The incident comes on the heels of the downing of a Syrian fighter jet on Sunday after the plane dropped bombs near American-backed forces fighting ISIS.
