The latest news of the fighting in Syria on February 8, 2020

Russia responded to Turkey's ultimatum with massive strikes

The ultimatum of Turkey against Russia and Syria ended very sadly for terrorists - exactly 36 hours after its announcement, Russian military aviation resumed large-scale attacks on the positions of jihadists, which, while also under the blows of the Syrian army, suffer enormous losses.

At the moment, the Syrian army has almost completely taken control of the M5 highway - the final liberation of this region may occur within the next 48-72 hours.

It should be clarified that Turkey promised a military response if the Syrian military continues the offensive operation, however, obviously, without support, the Turkish army may begin to incur incomprehensible losses.

Israel accused Russia and Syria of destroying the IL-20

Israel refused to plead guilty to the destruction of the Russian IL-20 in 2018 and blamed Russia and Syria for everything, saying that the Russian side’s arguments are provocative and that both the Russian and the Syrian military should bear responsibility.

“Modern fighter jets are not able to hide behind passenger liners. Therefore, when they say that the Israeli Air Force is hiding behind passenger planes, this is nonsense. Israel does not comment on this topic and the incident is hardly discussed in the local press. As for the incident on the eve of the incident, it recalls what happened in September 2018, when Israel was also accused of being covered by a Russian plane. Then the Syrian air defense, which for fear shot in all directions, because they are not professionals, shot down the Russian Il-20 aircraft. "They tried to blame Israel, despite the fact that at the time when the Russian airliner was shot down, Israeli fighters had already landed at their airbases."- said the ex-adviser to the Minister of Homeland Security of Israel, Alex Wexler.

Given such statements, Russia can radically change its attitude towards Israeli attacks on Syria.
