Zionist brothers Russia, US hold joint air force exercise over Syria
Russian and US air forces have held a joint drill over Syria to practice air safety measures for their aircraft, the Russian defense ministry said.
“There was a joint exercise with air crews and ground troops from the Russian and US air forces,” said Russian General Staff spokesman Colonel General Andrey Kartapolov on Tuesday.
He noted that during the exercises Russian and US-led coalition planes practiced close encounters in a specifically designated zone within a minimum distance of three aeronautical miles of each other.
“The exercises took place at 11:00 Moscow time (08:00 GMT) [on Tuesday],” he said, adding that during the exercises the crews from both sides also practiced communicating in Russian and English.
