This is the second incident of this kind to take place in the Al-Hasakah countryside this week.
The first interception attempt took place east of the city of Qamishli, but no film of the incident was captured by locals.
Despite open channels of communication, the U.S. and Russian troops continue to engage these hostile acts against one another in northeastern Syria.
