FARSNEWS2017/6/19
TEHRAN (FNA)- The first clash between the Syrian army troops and the predominantly Kurdish-led Syrian democratic Forces (SDF) occurred North of the city of Rasafeh after a Syrian air force fighter jet was shot down by the US-led coalition warplanes West of Raqqa.

The Syrian army and SDF forces reportedly engaged in fierce clashes North of al-Rasafeh city and in areas surrounding Shavihayan and Jaydeen villages.

The Syrian troops tried to rescue the pilot of the Syrian air force's fighter jet, Ali Fahd, after his plane was shot down by the US-led forces, but they faced the US-backed forces.

In a relevant development on Sunday, the Syrian army backed by the country's air force continued its military operations in the Western part of Raqqa, after capturing ISIL's last bastion in Eastern Aleppo and has recaptured several districts in recent days.

The predominately SDF also intensified attacks on ISIL's defense lines in Raqqa from three directions to oust Takfiri terrorists out of the group's self-proclaimed capital.

Damascus announced in a statement on Sunday that the US-led coalition has shot down one of its fighter jets during a mission in Raqqa countryside.

According to the statement, the warplane was carrying out operations against ISIL in the countryside of Raqqa when it was targeted, leading to a crash and the loss of the pilot, who is currently missing.

“This attack comes at a time when the Syrian Arab army and its allies are advancing in the fight against ISIS (ISIL or Daesh) terrorists who are being defeated in the Syrian desert in more ways than one,” the statement read.

The statement stressed that although such attacks seek to undermine the Syrian armed forces’ struggle against terrorism, they will not be deterred in fighting for stability and security in the Syrian Arab Republic.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A Kurdish political analyst disclosed that Syria's fighter jet downed by the US-led coalition warplanes in Raqqa had not targeted any position of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Raqqa.

"The phrase used by the US shows that the Syrian warplane had not tried to hit the SDF positions and therefore the Damascus government's version of the story about the attacks on ISIL's positions is correct," Member of the Syrian Democratic Council Rizan Hadu said.

He said it is at this point that the US cannot make any lame excuses as it is trying to deteriorate the relations between the Syrian army and the SDF. "This issue will have negative effects on the conditions of Qamishli, Aleppo and Afrin and it will cause the Syrian army and the SDF to enter a marginal war which will be harmful to the war on terrorism.

Hadu also reiterated that Syria has the right to tell all sides that its strategy in fighting terrorism would never allow it to be a Troy horse to allow the US or any other side to use it in order to enter Syria.

Damascus announced in a statement on Sunday that the US-led coalition has shot down one of its fighter jets during a mission in Raqqa countryside.
