Turkish military fired at VKS planes in Idlib


Airplanes of the Russian air forces, helping the Syrian army to deter the onslaught of illegal armed groups in the province of Idlib, were attacked by militants and the Turkish military.


This was reported by journalists of the TV channel "Russia 24", which are located in the Arab Republic.

The report said that militants and their instructors from Turkish units are actively using MANPADS against Russian and Syrian aircraft, but pilots are helped by altitudes and heat traps that are unattainable for missiles.

Meanwhile, on the eastern part of the Syrian front, the militants of the Islamist alliance “Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham” and the “National Liberation Front”, with the active support of the Turkish special forces, captured the city of Sarakib, the adjacent towns and a significant section of the M-5 highway connecting Aleppo and Damascus.

In this sector of the front, militant actions are supported by self-propelled howitzers and multiple launch rocket systems, as well as rocket launchers, artillery and mortars of the Turkish armed forces.

Recall that on February 26, the third stage of negotiations between the delegations of Russia and Turkey on the situation in Idlib ended.

At the negotiations, the parties did not come to a single decision and agreed to continue consultations.

    If the Turks really set the task of shooting down Russian planes, they would have coped with this task without any problems - there are enough funds. Apparently, the Turkish command has not set such tasks yet. It is clear that the Turks have a huge superiority of forces over the Russians in Syria, but the Turks are by nature insidious and cowardly, like all Muslims, so it is not a fact that they dare to engage in a direct armed conflict with the Russian Federation.

      They won’t go, the Turkish gut is thin. But Russia can. And then what will Erdoогan do? He broke pots with the States, and even teased. Russia tried to take advantage of this, even supplied air defense systems. Tomatoes, as a symbol of Russian-Turkish friendship, took in their markets. Now they are bombing tomato carriers. Under such circumstances, the main tomato bearer seemed to get on his nerves, both in Turkey and abroad. If the Turkish opposition revives, then Erdogan will be washed. It is high time. How pleasant in all respects (a womanizer, an alcoholic, a reformer) was Ataturk, Erdogan is so disliked. We-lo !!!

        Not a damn thing really Russia in the current situation can and Erdogan understands this.

          The indefinite trip to another world of 33 Turkish heroes of the Black Sea uncle Erdogan speaks of the opposite. Somehow I can't believe that this is the work of the Syrian Pokryshkins. And Erdogan's reaction is indicative: "We will take revenge, we will brutally take revenge ... Assad, who will enter the history books as a war criminal." Assad has something to do with it? Does Erdogan not know, or does he not understand, whose hands it was? And since he understands and untied Assad, it means he is afraid. Is this layout interesting for Israel? As for me - of course. Moscow, with the aggravation of relations with Ankara, accordingly, will strengthen military and economic ties with Israel. Which are already at a good level today. At the same time, the regime of Israel's enemy, Iran, will be weakened and isolated. It's simple: what's bad for Iran and Turkey is good for Israel. I do not equate the official position of Russia with regard to Israel with the subjective opinion of some individual emotional characters of the site who hate the State of Israel in general, Zionism and Jews in particular. These are two big differences. Hey, medabrim bodesa - ele shneim eudelim gdolim.

            In order to send three dozen Turks to the guria, it is not necessary to be an ace - just one NURS, accidentally hit the target, so that the Syrian flyers themselves could well carry out this outstanding feat.

            I want to remind you that in 2015, the Turks were not afraid to shoot down a Russian attack aircraft that entered the airspace of Turkey for a few kilometers, did they suddenly suddenly lose their former determination?

            Moscow, while aggravating relations with Ankara, will accordingly strengthen military and economic ties with Israel

            This is beneficial to Moscow - now that sanctions have been imposed on the Russian Federation, Israel is a window into the outside world through which various kinds of contacts take place.

            In this matter, Russia is guided exclusively by its own interests - the Persians for Russians in Syria are not only situational allies, but also competitors, the less their influence will be, the more the influence of Russians will increase. For the Israelis, it would be an ideal option if the entire territory of the UAR altogether turned into a subject of the Russian Federation, but this, as we all understand, is far from reality, alas ...

    From our side, a strike with "calibers" against terrorists would not hurt. For the Turks to calm down a little. And then they are insolently trying to shoot down our planes. And the highway must be released until March 5!

    No more cowardly than the Zionists, but they are clearly inferior in meanness and bragging.

    To apply the ODAB-500P and ODAB-1500 volumetric explosion air bombs to bandits, it’s enough to stand on ceremony with them ... Let them burn in hell!

    - Yes, yes, yes ... - "helps out" ... - Where does such calmness come from ... - And how will the militants drag something "more serious" and they will start knocking down ours ... - And then it will begin (as always) ... - well, who would have thought that Ukraine had supplied its "Buks" to the militants in Syria (after all, Erdogan just goes to Ukraine - to drink vodka and eat lard) ... or who could have expected that the Turks, it turns out, too - supplied the militants with air defense systems (or even the Turks themselves with these air defense systems arrived to shoot from them) ...
    - Such "tranquility" is simply criminal ...

      As for me, you are right. This is an equation with many unknowns. And many introductory notes. The introduction of which depends on the change of a seemingly already calculated option. Take Melnichenko's tapes. Suddenly it turned out that through Jordan, Ukraine supplied to Iraq "Kolchuga", which very successfully shot down US combat aircraft .... The Turks went to increase tensions, Russia is waiting. But her last moves show that the Turks were marked with the boundaries of advance. They hit them very unobtrusively. And explanations, such as that we warned the Turks, but they told us that they were not there - they were not rolling. Everything was perfectly understood. The states seem to have taken a favorite position: to intervene when it is clear who will take it. Iran, in this situation, is out of work at all. It's time to wind up the bag. And to the house to the hut. Israel plays very competently: we wish you happiness and cheer for the victory of all sides. Optimal position. Well, how will the heart calm down? Partitioning Syria, I guess. No one will be able to crush it all under themselves. Assad can survive in his enclave, like the rest of the puppets in theirs. And everyone in their zone of influence will deal with separate gangs. But all this will not happen suddenly and not now. Much more blood will be spilled.

        Well, and how will the heart calm down? I believe the partition of Syria. Nobody will succeed in crushing her under him.

        Yes, but the division can take place only according to the principle ... - "Here are the tops for you, and I'll take the roots" ... - Ie. Assad (pro-Russian) Syria will get endless sand dunes with ruined cities and lack of not only hydrocarbon reserves (oil and gas); but also simply - with the lack of fresh water ... - yes, yes, yes - everyone, like parrots, repeats about Syrian oil, and meanwhile, there is no fresh water in Syria ... - water flows into Syria from Turkey ... - Moreover, both rivers (Tigris and Euphrates), flowing from Turkish territory, are systematically blocked with dams. At present, Turkey is implementing a grandiose project in Southeast Anatolia (SEA) ... - According to Turkish data, the full implementation of the SEA project will reduce the river flow to Syria to almost zero. But the Euphrates supplies 80% of the total water resources of the Syrian rivers.
        - Our Crimea just nervously smokes on the sidelines ...
        - So Russia will build in the Syrian deserts of the city and ... bring water ... - But that's where to bring it ???

          I recall the heroine of Nona Mordyukova:

          And do not buy - turn off the gas!

          The demarcation lines will pass exactly where, who, and what time to fight. About the sands and

          ... the fifth day without water, all camels come, may Allah help them in loose sand ...

          But the new states are not the old Syria. The border area with Israel may well make peace with the Jewish state. And it will receive water, as, for example, Jordan, or reconciled Egypt - gas. After all, it is a delusion that the only source of water in Israel is the Kinneret. Our country has the most powerful and modern seawater desalination plants. According to the WHO conclusion, it can be drunk from the tap without filtering. What I am doing. Alive, however. So the problem with water can be solved. In principle, recovery can also be dealt with. Cheap labor, assembly points for branded products. I took, for example, Levi Strauss jeans in Munich: made in Bangladesh, Israeli Castro were also sewn there, Nike sneakers - Vietnam, China. Beneficial. The cost price is low. The basics of the economy. The main thing is to end the war and deal with the bandit formations. Only not according to the principle: my gangs are fighters for world peace, and my opponents are monsters of the human race. All non-state armed groups, without exception, must be disarmed, and those who do not want to do so must be neutralized in the most harsh manner. There will be no winners in Syria. If they do not divide the territory according to their interests, they will fight forever.

        - Rights, say ... - And then why don’t I put a plus ???
        - As for Syria, her song has been sung ... for a while ... - Obviously, Syria will disintegrate into several impoverished limitrophe states dependent on neighbors ... - Maybe then, after 150 years ... - again unite ... - What can you do if the Syrian people themselves do not want to fight in order to rid themselves of the bandits; nor rebuild destroyed cities; nor does he even want to pick up the "fishing rod" that Russia is constantly thrusting into his hands ... - Give him only fish ... - Such peoples do not live on their own for a long time ...

    Easily. But we have hat-tidying moods. As before Russian-Japanese.

      England has no permanent enemies or friends. England has permanent interests. This saying applies to Russia, and Turkey, and to Israel. To any state.
      At present, the interests of Russia and Israel in BV, in particular, and other parts of the planet, if they do not coincide, then they do not contradict. Israel is interested in the weakening of Turkey and Iran in BV. Russia also would not refuse. Moreover, Turkey has recently been doing everything in its power for this. I, as a convinced Zionist and anti-Islamist, moreover, with two hands in favor. And no nervousness at the same time. Some positive emotions.
