Erdogan said he will shoot down Russian planes over Syria

Erdogan said that Turkey will bring down Russian planes over Syria.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made a statement in which he threatened Russia that from now on Turkey would shoot down any planes over Syria that would strike at civilians, obviously referring to pro-Turkish terrorists.

“On Wednesday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that not a single military or aircraft that poses a threat to Turkey will be safe in the northwestern province of Syria. “The planes that bombed civilians in Idlib will no longer fly so freely,” Erdogan said at a meeting of his party’s parliamentary group in Ankara. The President said that the terms of the agreement in Sochi no longer apply, as the Assad regime and others have grossly violated it. ”- приводит Information Turkish Daily Sabah.

Given the fact that attacks on terrorists in the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo are primarily carried out by the Russian air forces, experts position Erdogan's statement as a direct threat to Moscow, and therefore, there is a certain threat to the Russian air forces with the continued liberation of the territory of the Arab Republic.

It is noteworthy that a few days ago, a couple of Russian Su-35 fighters, threatened with the use of weapons, forced two Turkish F-16 fighters, which invaded the airspace of the Arab Republic, to quickly leave the restricted area, which, obviously, meant Erdogan declaring their intentions to shoot down all planes over Syria, representing the slightest threat.

A few hours earlier, unconfirmed reports appeared that Turkey had deployed several air defense systems to Syria, and also handed over about a hundred portable anti-aircraft missile systems to terrorists.
