Report revealed that, Australia has plan to temporarily suspending its military air operations over Syria, after a notification from Russia that it would treat aircraft from the US-led coalition as potential targets.
Australia government said, the suspension was a "precautionary measure".
Russia's caution came after the US brought down a Syrian military plane.
Moscow also said it was halting communications with the US aimed at preventing such incidents.
Australia has deployed about 780 military personnel as part of the US-led coalition fighting so-called Islamic State (IS) in both Iraq and Syria.
The halt in operations comes as the coalition and the fighters it is supporting on the ground attempt to eject IS militants from the city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the "caliphate" they proclaimed in 2014, BBC report said.
