    Fearing Russia, Australians Decided to Pack Their Bags up and Leave "Anti-ISIS" Coalition

    Australian officials made an announcement on Tuesday, saying the country will cease its participation in the US-led so-called “international anti-ISIS” coalition.

    The decision comes amid Russian warnings of a possible targeting of the coalition aircrafts, following the illegal US downing of the Syrian military jet that was conducting anti-ISIS raids above Raqqah, on Sunday.

    Fearing consequences, the Australians decided to step out of the ISIS arena.

    Earlier on Tuesday, a spokesman for the Australian Ministry of Defense said the decision was made due to increased tensions between the United States and Russia, after the US Air Force shot down a Syrian combat jet. 

    On Monday, Russian Defense Ministry issued a statement, saying Russian forces operating in Syria, will likely target any flying objects, considered dangerous or intrusive, with their own missiles.

    The White House has since responded, saying the coalition has the right to defend itself from the threat of ISIS.

    Australia joined the coalition back in 2014 and reportedly contributed at least eight of its F/A-18 military jets to the international alliance.

    It is noteworthy that Australian Air Force was involved in the slaughter of more than 100 Syrian soldiers, when the coalition forces “accidentally” raided the Syrian military airport in Deir Ez Zour province back August 2016.
