Coalition forces are using the Al-Tanaf base by Syria's borders with Jordan and Iraq to train anti-jihadist Syrian fighters and stage attacks against IS. It added that a June 8 incident occurred in the same area where another armed pro-regime drone dropped ammunition near Coalition forces before it was shot down.

"This is such an important election because of what goes on in D.C.", said Tom Greathouse, 52, a business owner who supported Handel.

In this picture released by the Iranian state-run IRIB News Agency on Monday, June 19, 2017, a missile is fired from city of Kermanshah in western Iran targeting the Islamic State group in Syria.

Fighting and bombardment meanwhile resumed early Tuesday between Syrian government forces and rebels in the southern city of Daraa and nearby areas, where a 48-hour truce had gone into effect on Saturday.

"We are heading toward a bare-knuckle fight, which is likely to be in favor of the Russia-Iran-Syria axis", he said.

Moscow said it was suspending an incident hotline set up two years ago and warned that it would consider global aircraft operating in central Syria "aerial targets". Ankara is angered by a USA decision to launch the Raqqa offensive in partnership with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

Russian Federation is the most powerful ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, and the rare air-to-air encounter prompted Moscow to suspend a de-confliction hotline with the US-led coalition, created to prevent any accidents in the skies over Syria.

Ossoff's camp is maintaining its confidence, noting that elections officials have said about 36,000 of the more than 140,000 early votes were from people who didn't cast ballots the first round.

Australia said Thursday it had lifted a suspension of its airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria that was imposed amid tensions with Russian Federation after a USA fighter jet shot down a Syrian warplane this week.

The U.S. military has repeatedly warned forces fighting on Assad's side to stay away from a "deconfliction zone", agreed with Russian Federation, near a garrison used by U.S. Special Forces and U.S. -backed militia around Al-Tanf, near the border with Jordan.

A U.S. military official told AFP the drone was "on a run toward our folks to drop a munition on them" and was shot down in self-defence.

A Syrian military official in Damascus said the truce was not extended.

The Russian military had informed Turkey and Israel in advance of Russian Navy Kalibr cruise missile launches on Daesh targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

The tensions between the United States and Russian militaries who support opposing sides in the six-year Syrian civil war follows a number of recent incidents where the United States military downed manned and unmanned Syrian and pro-Syrian warplanes.

The Sunday downing of the Syrian warplane prompted Russian Federation to issue a threat against American airborne assets over Syrian airspace and track all coalition flights west of the Euphrates River. The US pilot proceeded to fire off a second missile, an AIM 120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile, which hit its intended target, downing the Syrian warplane and forcing its pilot to eject, the officials added. It was a reaction to the USA striking a Syrian airfield that was allegedly used to launch a chemical attack.
