BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – A Syrian Special Forces unit targeted a U.S. reconnaissance aircraft flying over their positions in northeastern Syria , a military source confirmed to Al-Masdar this evening.

The U.S. reconnaissance aircraft was reportedly hovering over the Syrian Army’s Regiment 54 Base in Al-Qamishli, when the personnel at the installation opened fire on the plane.

The aircraft fled the area around the base after it came in contact with the Syrian Arab Army on Saturday evening, the military source added.

Today’s confrontation in the Al-Qamishli District of the Al-Hasakah Governorate marks the first time since Friday that the U.S. and Syrian forces have confronted one another.

Recon generally means a drone. BTW, Tomahawk strikes are preceded with photographic course mapping .
