Syrian Special Forces opened fire on a US reconnaissance drone flying over their positions in northeastern Syria, a military source confirmed to Al-Masdar on Saturday.

Communication channels between Russia and the US have been suspended, which gives Syria more "wiggle room" when it comes to defending its airspace. 

Al Masdar News reports:

The U.S. reconnaissance aircraft was reportedly hovering over the Syrian Army’s Regiment 54 Base in Al-Qamishli, when the personnel at the installation opened fire on the plane.

The aircraft fled the area around the base after it came in contact with the Syrian Arab Army on Saturday evening, the military source added.
