Russian aerospace forces stop Turkish convoy in Syria

The Russian Air Force combat aircraft had to intervene in a situation where a Turkish military convoy tried to enter the settlement of Al-Bara in the Syrian province of Idlib.

Russian planes carried out jewelry bombing raids on terrorist positions, to which Turkish army units were heading.

Such a measure forced a military convoy of 65 cars to turn around and leave the dangerous area.

However, the Turks did not manage to avoid losses, as the Syrian government army attacked the ill-fated military convoy, forcing the Turkish military to take refuge in nearby buildings.

According to European news agencies, several Turkish soldiers were injured during this incident.

Later, information about the intervention of the Russian Aerospace Forces was denied by the agency Interfax with reference to a military source, however, it seems that the case took place to be, and the refutation was made on the basis of some need.

It can be assumed that the Turks would have long ago used their military aircraft to support the ground forces in Idlib, but they do not, as the Syrian command ordered the air defense forces to shoot down any foreign aircraft that violated the republic’s air borders.

    The evening ceases to be languid.
    And the second question to the author of the publication. Just to clarify. Since I personally read the explanation of specialists in Russian studies - philologists on this issue. The expression "takes place", is it applicable today in Russian, is it included in dictionaries, or is it correct "does it take place"? I ask only because, like all languages, Russian is alive and changing.

    My friend is a combat pilot, graduated from the Barnaul Higher Military Aviation School, fought in Afghanistan on Su-24. I asked him the other day how they estimated the cost of rocket-bomb weapons for airplanes. His answer - the launch of one laser-guided missile type UR X-23 (X-25) was the cost of the Lada. My specificity was cheaper - one shot from a tank - and officer chrome boots flew (their cost in the 80s was 70-80 rubles). I’m just wondering how much money the Russian leadership, led by the president, profiled in Syria and other, far from local, conflicts around the world ???

    The Russian Air Force combat aircraft had to intervene.

    - the Russian aerospace forces will run into their own S-400s, and the Turks will do it - they have already proved it.
