Sovereign nations in the region dont want Assad and dont want Russian involvement.
Sovereign nations in the region certainly don't want Israel in the region............................. You gonna start filtering terrorists into Israel and start killing the the IDF with your f16's? I don't think the USA is going to start attacking Israel which really is the hated state in the region lol.
Look Xcath Syria for all its issues is a soverign state under attack by western and Gulf sponsored terrorists. The one nation on planet Earth that has made the big difference in getting rid of ISIS is Russia, they have bombed them into retreat, something the USA mysteriously was unable to do with all its super duper tech. Those Russians have saved Christians from being exterminated from their ancient homeland in Syria and if you don't recognise that you one blind individual and one that cares nothing for Christendom in its heartland of the ME

the Syrian fighter kill was a message to all sides that the USA is gonna carve out a Fortress State, a USA & Kurd Zone that is destined to survive Iran/Hezbollah/Syrian & Russian aggressions
U.S. EQ-4 GLOBAL HAWK DRONE SHOT DOWN BY RUSSIAN S-300 OVER MEDITERRANEAN SEA NEAR SYRIA
UPDATE 11:46 PM EDT --
Reports are now coming in that a United States Air Force EQ-4 "Global Hawk" drone was shot down over the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Syria, by a Russian S-300 surface-to-air missile fired from the Russian Base at Tartus, Syria.
If this information that the Russians shot down an EQ-4 Global Hawk is accurate, then US Troops operating on the ground with Syrian "Rebels" will no longer be able to INSTANTLY talk to nearby air support as was done a few days ago, when a US F/A-18 was called-in to attack and destroy a Syrian Arab Army Air Force fighter jet.
Such a shoot down by Russia would be pricey retaliation over the US Shoot-down of a Syrian Jet, without causing the US to feel a need to avenge anything; like a pilot. It would send a Russian message to the US not to shoot down anymore Syrian government aircraft.
If the Pentagon Press office responds to my inquiry, this story will be further updated.

Hezbollah head: ‘Hundreds of thousands’ of Muslim fighters will respond if Israel attacks
BEIRUT, Lebanon — The head of Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy, on Friday warned Israel against attacking Lebanon or Syria, saying “hundreds of thousands” of Arab and Muslim fighters would be ready to strike back.
“The Israeli enemy should know that if it launches an attack on Syria or Lebanon, it’s unknown whether the fighting will stay just between Lebanon and Israel, or Syria and Israel,” Hassan Nasrallah said. “I’m not saying countries would intervene directly — but it would open the door for hundreds of thousands of fighters from all around the Arab and Islamic world to participate in this fight — from Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan,” he said.
The powerful Shiite movement and Israel have fought many battles including a devastating 34-day war in 2006 that killed 1,200 people in Lebanon, mainly civilians, and 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.
Earlier this week, the head of Israel’s air force said it would have “unimaginable” military power at hand in any future conflict with Hezbollah.
“What the air force was able to do quantitatively in the… Lebanon war over the course of 34 days we can do today in 48-60 hours,” Major General Amir Eshel said on Wednesday. “This is potential power unimaginable in its scope, much different to what we have seen in the past and far greater than people estimate.”
