U.S. F/A-18E Super Hornet shoots down Syrian regime SU-22

U.S. led Coalition forces conducted a “show of force” on Sunday (June 18) against pro-Syrian regime forces and downed a Syrian regime warplane.

Pro-regime forces attacked U.S.-backed SDF fighters in Ja’Din, wounding a number of SDF and driving them out from the town. Coalition aircraft conducted a show of force and stopped the initial pro-regime advance.
According to a statement, a U.S. F/A-18E Super Hornet then shot down a Syrian regime SU-22 after the regime warplane dropped bombs near SDF fighters south of Tabqa.
