Report warns threat to airliners; United States bans flights over Syria

Swiss-based researchers and FAA have reported that Syrian rebels have a variety of anti-aircraft missiles. These could easily fall into the hands of extremists intent upon shooting down commercial planes. The report, performed by an international arms research group, was released just a few hours after the FAA notified all U.S. airlines that they must stop flying over Syrian airspace. The Federal Aviation Administration had warned about flights over Syria previously but hadn’t yet prohibited them. Most airlines stopped flying over Syria after the warning in May 2013.

In the notice, the FAA said that opposition groups have already been successful in shooting down Syrian military aircraft using these same weapon systems.
