TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria, a division of the Russian defense ministry, disclosed on Wednesday that fighter jets and drones from the US-led coalition breached Syria’s airspace in the al-Tanf area on 18 occasions on Wednesday.

“Three pairs of the coalition’s F-16, four pairs of F-35, a pair of Typhoon fighter jets, as well as two MQ-1C multi-role unmanned aerial vehicles violated Syria’s airspace in the al-Tanf area, across which international air routes run, 18 times during the day,” The deputy chief of the Russian Center Vadim Kulit stated, according to TASS.
