Russia carrying out unsafe and unprofessional air activity in Syria: US general

The US continues to see “unsafe and unprofessional air activity” from the Russians in Syria, a top US military general says.

“We continue to see unsafe and unprofessional air activity from the Russians,” Maj. Gen. Matthew McFarlane told reporters during a phone call to discuss the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

McFarlane, who leads the coalition against ISIS, said the US military uses a deconfliction hotline with the Russians to mitigate any increased risks due to Russia’s disruptive activities.

But he said the anti-ISIS coalition remains committed and focused on the mission, ensuring that “we can do that uninhibited by different players on the battlefield that seek to frustrate us possibly.”
