Any aircraft that violate the border will continue to be destroyed by Syrian air defense

Against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the northern provinces of Syria, where the confrontation between militants supported by the Turkish army and government troops continues, the SAA air defense crews were ordered to shoot down any aircraft that illegally invaded the republic’s airspace.

This is stated in a statement circulated by the command of the armed forces of the Arab Republic.

RIA News" cite a statement by the Syrian military:

Any aircraft that violate Syrian airspace will be regarded as an enemy combat target that is not allowed to be in our skies. It will be prosecuted immediately after detection, and destroyed immediately after the violation of our airspace.

The statement emphasizes that any violation of airspace will be regarded by air defense forces as external aggression against Syria.

It should be noted that the Syrian government forces have every reason to make such uncompromising decisions.
They are prompted by constant threats from the Turkish leadership.

So, on Saturday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced his intention to take "more decisive action" in the territory of sovereign Syria.

    Accounts for Turkey have been accumulated in Syria for a long time, even since the annexation of the Syrian Alexandretta Sanjak by Ankara. Now here are the new challenges from Turkey. The Turks must understand that behind the statements of Damascus about the need to bring down their military sides is Russia. All this is understandable. But what to do with the Israeli military sides? This is not Turkey. Try to shoot too? Or not?

      Israeli military aircraft are also being shot down, which are now trying to wrap themselves secretly to the border with Syria, for example, from Lebanese territory.

    1) It is urgent to stop flying there ours. And then again all sorts of Jews and Yusovtsy will be to blame ...
    2) Urgently deliver another T-400 to Turkey for tangerines. They won’t hurt us, but terrorists are pleased.
    3) Once in the 100th, thank Erdogan for cooperation, etc., etc. Maybe it’ll grow up, he’ll buy more weapons.

    Of course they will! Ours are afraid to bring down, and the Syrians even more so! Shmallut once and bomb all the air defense! But we did not answer for the pilots. If there was a superpower, the rocket would fly to the airfield where their plane landed.
