Aircraft of the US-led coalition have recently been activating their arms system on Russian aircraft over Syria, Rear Admiral Oleg Gurinov, the deputy head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria, said on Friday.
The admiral added that the Russian pilots have logged such actions in eastern Syria, noting that the US continues to breach deconfliction protocols with Russia and the air safety agreement in Syria.
"One of the examples of such violations is the increasing cases of activation of combat systems for targeting aviation weapons of the coalition aircraft to Russian aircraft, recorded by Russian pilots during scheduled flights in the eastern regions of Syria," Gurinov told reporters.

In March, Al Mayadeen sources reported that the so-called "International Coalition" led by the United States in Syria has transferred a number of ISIS militants from the Industrial Secondary Prison in the city of Al-Hasakah.
The sources stated that the ISIS militants of various foreign nationalities, who number about 150, were transferred to the US bases of Al-Shadadi and Al-Omar in the countryside of Deir Ezzor and the Semalka border crossing, on the border with Iraq.
This came in parallel with the launch of the Popular Mobilization Authority in Iraq, a large-scale security operation in the western Nineveh Governorate.
