WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An American F-15 fighter jet landed in the sights of an Iranian passenger plane on Thursday, but two U.S. officials told Reuters.


An official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the incident was related to Syria.

Two American fighter jets came close to an Iranian passenger plane in Syrian airspace, preventing the pilot from colliding quickly and injuring several passengers, the IRIB news agency reported.
