Turkey deployed air defense systems against American fighters

Turkey intends to shoot down American fighters in case they appear in the military operation zone.

Due to the fact that the United States of America refused to support Turkey during a military operation in northern Syria, the latter deployed short-range air defense systems in the area of ​​the operation, which would hit American planes and drones if the latter tried to intervene.

According to preliminary data, we are talking about anti-aircraft missile launchers, consisting of 8 "Stinger" missiles mounted on a wheelbase. There are no official comments from Ankara on this subject, however, experts pay attention to an important detail - the Kurds have no planes or helicopters in their arsenal, and it is Washington that is the main opponent of the military operation in the northern part of the Arab Republic.

Whether the Turkish army dares to use its air defense systems against American combat aircraft and helicopters is still unknown, however, experts believe that in this way Ankara intends to demonstrate its full determination to the United States.
