Russian combat aircraft shot down an unknown target over northwestern Syria.

According to Turkish, Syrian and Arab media reports, Russian combat aircraft lifted from the Khmeimim airbase in the Syrian province of Latakia (fighter type not shown - ed.), Made a U-turn in the sky and rushed in a north-westerly direction hit an unknown aerial target. According to Turkish sources, the goal could be a reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle of the Turkish army, which was first seen by Russian airborne fighters.

“Syrian Observatory activists reported that planes flew over Aleppo province early Saturday morning. These aircraft fired several air-to-air missiles that exploded in the airspace of the western part of the Aleppo project. They also fired several rockets on the outskirts of Azaz in northern Aleppo, where the Turkish military post is located. The affiliation of the planes is not yet known, but they are considered Russian, since Russian planes previously delivered similar attacks over Hama and Idlib. ”- сообщает SyrianHR Edition.

It is noteworthy that, despite all the arguments that the Turkish drone is in question, there are no official statements from the Turkish Ministry of Defense in this regard, although Turkish sources on social networks report that it is about fighters of the Russian Aerospace Forces, although the actions of the latter remain unknown. Debris of a downed aircraft still not found

Analysts did not rule out that kamikaze drones, with the help of which the so-called “moderate opposition” Turkey makes attempts to strike at a Russian military airfield, could have been struck.
