U.S. military says crisis communications link with Russia 'in use'
Oh well, looks like the rhetoric was just that. The "The deconfliction line is open and it is in use,":
The U.S. military said on Friday that a crisis communications link with Russia meant to avoid an accidental clash over Syria was "in use," even after Moscow threatened to abandon it over the U.S. downing of a Syrian military jet on Sunday.

"The deconfliction line is open and it is in use," Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, a Baghdad-based spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition battling Islamic State in Iraq and Syria told a Pentagon news conference.

The remarks were the latest indication of a possible easing of tensions in the wake of the U.S. shootdown of the Syrian jet.
It would appear the 'targeting' of coalition aircraft is not taking place either:
Russia also said on Monday it would treat U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft.

But the Pentagon later said that Russia was not carrying out any actions in Syria that caused it concern.
No doubt a new line will be spun by the 'propaganda dogs'
 
I was illustrating that the likelihood of Turkey and Russia becoming best buddies was very unlikely. In both Turkey and Russia, the heavy hand of history is all persuasive in international relations.
Russia and Turkey becoming best friends, perhaps not. Making an alliance of convenience however, that's a different story. If they can come to an agreement on the future of Syria, there's no reason why they couldn't cooperate on that and other common fields of interest.
 
Spillover of conflict into Israel from Syria provokes immediate response.
Israel strikes Syrian positions after fire toward it

Meanwhile Russian state-run news agency RIA Novosti reports that according to a source in Russian MoD, Israeli strikes hit positions of Nusra front that made an attempt to involve the Israelis into the civil war.
 
Certainly Israeli involvement would be an additional complication, one that Israel themselves would probably wish to avoid. They will no doubt however continue to respond vigorously to any territorial infringement.
 
The tinfoil hatters are saying that Israel hit a position (Syrian) being attacked by ISIS which ISIS then overran, then making comments about how ISIS has never attacked Israel in some kind of conspiracy that ISIS is an American psyop!

Priceless.
