They tried to shoot down the Russian reconnaissance aircraft Tu-214R over Syria - it miraculously survived

In the sky over Syria, another Russian military aircraft was shot down.

The Russian military reconnaissance aircraft Tu-214P was attacked several hours ago from the FIM-92 Stinger man-portable air defense system while carrying out an reconnaissance mission. It is reported that an anti-aircraft missile with a thermal guidance head was fired on the plane, however, for unknown reasons, it was unable to hit its target, which is obviously due to the shooting of heat traps by the Russian plane.

The source reports that the incident occurred in the area of ​​the village of Kaminas.

“The Turkish-supported jihadists in Kaminas in Idlib again tried to bring down a Russian plane, but this time the Tu-214R reconnaissance aircraft, using Turkish-supplied MANPADS, but to no avail (I wonder why?)”, - the user of the “Syrian_MC” Twitter account reports.

As follows from the data provided by other military sources, the Russian Tu-214 military aircraft was indeed located in the area the day before, however, at the moment there is no evidence in the form of photo or video materials allowing 100% certainty to confirm the next attack on a Russian military plane.

It is noteworthy that the attack on the Russian Tu-214R aircraft took place just a few hours before the telephone conversation between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Turkey is not the first time trying to attack the Russian military in Syria - either Erdogan has absolutely no control over the situation in the region, or the attacks against the Russian military are targeted”, - the expert marks.
