Earlier Wednesday, a United States commander accused Russian and Syrian jets of bombing US-backed fighters in Syria. The United States and Russian Federation have a channel for avoiding each other in the crowded airspace over Syria.

Cellphone footage of the incident showed the man saying that all the "illegals" should be kicked off the plane, moments before he and a woman were asked to collect their belongings and exit the aircraft.
