Syrian Army Warns Against Any Violation Of Country’s Airspace

File image

The General Command of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) warned on February 22 that any violation of the country’s airspace will be dealt with as a “foreign military aggression.”

In an official statement, the army’s command said that orders have been given to the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) to repel any such aggression.

“Any aircraft that violates the Syrian airspace will be treated as a hostile military target that will not be allowed to fly over our airspace, it will be tracked at the moment of its discovery and we will work to destroy it once it penetrates our airspace,” the statement reads.

The SAA’s warning appears to be directed against Turkey, whose forces are amassing in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

Two days ago, Turkey and its proxies, including al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) launched a joint attack on SAA positions in southern Idlib. The army, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS), repelled the attack within a few hours.

Despite sustaining catastrophic losses in their attack, Turkey and its proxies are now apparently preparing to launch an even larger attack. This time, however, Ankara may attempt to use its air force.

The Turkish Air Force (TAF) operates dozens of advanced f-16 fighter jets. However, the SyAADF maintains a tight grip over northwest Syria thanks to a network of air-defense systems around the region, including at least one S-300PMU2 battery deployed in Hama. The SyAAF could also provide support with its upgraded MiG-29SM warplanes.

A Turkish aerial attack on SAA positions in northwest Syria could provide Ankara’s proxies with the support they need to advance again. However, such a move will for sure come with a very high risk. A battle in the sky could ignite a full-scale war between Turkey and Syria.

      He, as a Dönmeh Jew, is just doing what the Zionists, and christian Zionists, and what ever mad religious zealots told him to do. That’s his job – to make the whole region go up in flames – including Turkey. And for what ever reasons, or what ever the Turkish people think – that he want’s to free Palestine, or to fulfill mad Mahdi prophesy (as the fake Israel-Nato ISIS) – they are in it, because of their support for Israels man Erdogan, and they will be part of those flames. Why they are running with seeing eyes and cheering into this, is beyond me…

      At least these are not censored. Its very important to spread non-censored images, because people need the shocks seeing reality as it is.

      lmao they got fucking massacred hahahahahhahaha

  • nyomarek

    Hopefully SAA means Israeli, French, Dutch and other North Atlantic Terrorist Organization jets.

    • <>

      Let them shoot on IAF jets like before if they dare, we all know how it will end. The IDF will crush the SAA and Iran in Syria if they face us in an all out war, and even Russia won’t save them.

        Didn’t the Syrians knock down one of your jets about a year ago which is why you no longer fly over Syrian territory, you Jew fuckwit!

            What’s in a name? They just keep bumping off your friends with impunity regardless of what name you prefer.

        • Jake321

          And yet the body bags just keep flowing back to Iran and Lebanon as Israel just keeps bombing Islamist Iranians and their lap puppies, Hezbollah, with impunity all over Syria. Try to keep up, AH.

      • Bru

        When the Zionist regime invaded Lebanon, it was defeated by the Hezbollah, which had no airforce and nor even armored vehicles… IAF and IDF seem to be only “good” (evil) at murdering the innocent indigenous habitants of Palestine to steal their land and houses.

        • <>

          We will give you a real reason to cry about in the next war, whoever supports Hezbollah and helps them in Lebanon will die, there will be no mercy.

          • Wizzy

            We know you are arrogant but we also know what Hezbollah did to you in 2006. IDF is not all that

          • <>

            Then trust Hezbollah, put your money on them then. I don’t have to convince anyone here, the more Israelis die the more destruction upon Lebanon.

          • Arch Bungle

            Hezbollah can at any time end Israel. They have enough missile power to level Tel Aviv and Haifa.

          • Jake321

            You have such delusional wet dreams. But if ever that is tried, there would be little left of Lebanon. And if need be it and Islamist Iran, who would be the sponsor of the attacks, might all glow in the dark.

          • Arch Bungle

            Promises promises.

          • Jake321

            Unlike you and yours, Israel follows through on its promises. And if you were such big guy winners, why is the potential Palestinian State always shrinking? Soon all that will be left to witness is a second Nakba.

          • Arch Bungle

            “Israel follows through on its promises. ” … LOL! You’re funny hasbara troll. You should quit the propaganda game and take up comedy instead.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    I’ve not noticed Damascus deterring the Israeli Air Force recently, so have absolutely no idea how they would do so with regards the TAF.

    Still it would make for interesting comparisons… MiG-29M v F-16 Block 50+ standard.

    • <>

      We don’t give a shit about their threats, if they help Iran then they will both be targeted.

      • PZIVJ

            How’d that fight with the Hezbollah work out in 2006 ?

          • <>

            Very well thank you, many of them roasted like BBQ. It took just 10K soldiers and one month to break them, a small operation in our standards. As you can see, they have been quiet since then.

          • Tim Williams
          • <>

            They won’t breathe enough time to shoot all of those, trust me.

          • Tim Williams

            first ones to land on your runways and jet fuel storage tanks

          • <>

            Like I said, they won’t live long enough to do it, and also the people in those villages where the rockets are fired from.

          • Monte George

            That’s what you said before the 2006 debacle. Why should anyone believe you now?

          • <>

            You don’t have to believe it, you just need to sit and watch when the time comes.

          • Arch Bungle

            We did in 2006 and it was glorious watching Hizbollah humiliate the IDF.
            They’re more dangerous now, so the next war is going to be an even bigger defeat for you zionist reptiles.

          • Monte George

            Not so well, actually. It took total mobilization of IDF + callup of reserves + resupply from USA stockpiles to enter Lebanon, get defeated and humiliated by Hezbollah’s 2nd string fighters, and limp home with your tails between your legs. Next time the fight will come to your homeland, and the entire world will rejoice as you are decimated and driven into the sea.

          • <>

            Oh, I am so scared. Bring it on.

          • Arch Bungle

            Youbbroke nobody, liar.
            You lost that war.
            You killed a lot of civilians, even UN staff.
            Hezbollah kicked your asses with only one battallion and zero air support.
            Your ground forces were cooked like roast pig in their merkavas.
            In the end you had to run to Uncle Sam to get a ceasefire.

          Iran will leave Syria dead or alive, we won’t let them open another front.

        News, Rusty: Iran is *all over the place*. They have you surrounded from the Red Sea to Iraq and that noose gets tighter every day. There’s nothing you can do about it …

          Not yet anyway, till you will see a new patriotic Israeli governemnt taking some real actions in Syria.

          • Arch Bungle

            Your new patriotic government of fake hebrews are going to get smashed if they try crossing into Syria. All you can do is keep up the pathetic pinprick attacks your expensive Airforce manages to shit out.

            Whatever, loser.

  • TTdr

    If Turkey dare to cross the airspace, it would have long done it since 2013, after it shot down one RuAF Su22 & get warn by Russia.

  • JIMI JAMES

    Sounds like dog fight on the horizon or anti aircraft against such,economics?

  • Xoli Xoli

    Syrian military forces should deploy bomb planter’s,sniper battalions,manpads battalions,signal battalions,paratroopers,airforce,defence systems operators.But all forces should be able to operate in all battalions and engage enemies attacks like a trooper.If eny terrorist start preparing for attack resort to preamtive attack to disengage the enemy.Turkey army should be restricted to avoid entering or moving on Syrian land.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Any meeting or telephone call between Putin and Erdogan should call for complete Turkey withdrawal 9r face the consequences. No more Turkish soldiers allowed on Syrian territory.Syria reserves the right of self defence in own country.USA control UN should request Erdogan to moving his heavy artillery and weapons 30 km away from Syria n border.

  • gustavo

    Nothing to worry about my friend, Russia air force is far too effectiva and darger than NATO (Turkey) air force, and the Russia intelligence can see and predict any Turkish motion. So, one must expect another catastrophic attack of Turkey and its terrorists, and this one must trigger the continuation of SAA-Hezbolah-Iran-Russia ground troops.

  • Assad must stay

    yes use your S-300s and down any turkish insect!!!!

    • Jake321

      These Russian things have really proved their effectiveness. When operated by Syrians, they shoot down Russian spy planes. When operated by Iranians, they short down civilian airliners. Heck, when operated by Russians they also shoot down civilian airliners.

  • Cheryl Brandon

    ERDAGOON IS A TOTAL IRRATIONAL MONSTER

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    syrialivemaps showed Turkish aircraft operating over Aleppo on friday, and they also stated a Russian aircraft chased off a Turkish F-16.

  • Romeo Pesiao

    An air battle might be Russian Aerospace Force against Turkish Air Force. It’s interesting if it will happened. The event is the scale who’s fighter jets prevail in the air. (US or Russian made).

  • Jake321

    Well, maybe they can do better against Turkey than they have been doing against Israel.

    • Arch Bungle

      What happening to Turkey will shortly happen to Israel.
