Russia backs off threats after US Marine Corps show of force in Syria

In early September, Russia threatened operations or precision strikes within the deconfliction zone, home to deployed US soldiers, after accusing the US-led coalition there of harboring terrorists. Responding to these threats, the US carried out a large show-of-force exercise. Since these exercises, there has been no further threats or contact regarding the zone that carries significant strategic potential as it would connect Damascus with Tehran-controlled territory.
