Two American F-22’s on patrol over Syria, flew within a mile of two Syrian fighter jets and "encouraged" them to leave.

The close encounter comes only a day after two Syrian warplanes attacked the Kurds, a key US ally, forcing US special operations forces to be withdrawn from their position in northern Syria.

The American aircraft are part of the beefed-up US air combat patrols in the area that the Pentagon had announced following Thursday's attack.

The pilots of the F-22 Raptors tried to call the Syrian aircraft cockpit-to-cockpit but got no response.
