The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has suspended flights over Syria after Russia said it halted sky incident prevention interactions with the US as of June 19, due to the coalition’s downing of a Damascus warplane.

“As a precautionary measure, Australian Defence Force (ADF) strike operations into Syria have temporarily ceased,” Australia’s Department of Defense said in a statement, adding its operations in Iraq would continue as part of the coalition.

I didn't even realize Australia was in on the bombing in Syria. Who isn't?

f**king Aussies also been bombing Syria.  Who'd have thunk it?   It least they have the sense to back off when S-400s are waiting to lock onto them.
