An F/A-18E Super Hornet fighter jet from the US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria downed a Syrian SU-22 fighter over the countryside south of Raqqa on Sunday afternoon local time, according to a coalition press release.

According to the release, on late afternoon Sunday, pro-Syrian government forces attacked the town of Ja'Din, south of Tabqah and west of Raqqa, ISIS' self-declared capital.

Ja'Din was held by coalition-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, and the Syrian strikes wounded some SDF fighters. Coalition aircraft stopped the initial strike through a show of force, according to the release.

Coalition officials then contacted their Russian counterparts via a "de-confliction line" to stop the firing. However, about two hours after the first strike by pro-Syrian government forces, a Syrian SU-22 fighter dropped several bombs near SDF fighters south of Tabqah.
