Russian unprofessional behavior over Syria - 5 July 2023
Russian SU-35 fighter aircraft employ parachute flares in the flight path of U.S. MQ-9 aircraft on July 5, 2023 over Syria. Against established norms and protocols, this forced U.S. aircraft to conduct evasive maneuvers. Russian forces have displayed increasingly unprofessional and unsafe actions while operating in Syria, threatening the safety of both U.S. and Russian forces. (U.S. Air Force photo)
