Daniel Larison: Intercepting Iranian plane over Syrian airspace another reminder that US military presence in Syria is illegal

Daniel Larison, a US writer in the "American Conservative" Magazine, has stressed that the incident of intercepting an Iranian passenger plane by two US warplanes over the Syrian airspace is another reminder that the U.S. military presence in Syria is unauthorized and illegal and that the US forces should withdraw from Syria immediately.

"This latest incident is another reminder that the U.S. military presence in Syria is unauthorized and illegal. U.S. jets have no business operating in Syrian airspace, and U.S. troops have no business being on Syrian territory. The jets were operating illegally to safeguard an illegal base, and in the process they nearly caused a terrible accident, Larison said in an article published by the "American Conservative" Magazine on Thursday.
