I’d be willing to bet big dollars that this is an incomplete or wildly misleading statement.  It smells like the US had some embedded troops and this plane was getting a little close to something or someone(s) that we cared about and, after careful consideration, escalation be damned, the decision was made to shoot it down.

Iran is also now lobbing missiles into the area.  Israel was revealed to have been also supporting anti-Syrian forces today.  No suprise there.
