Turkish Specialists Are Using Anti-Aircraft Missiles Against Russian, Syrian Warplanes: Russian State TV

File image

Turkish military specialists in Syria’s Greater Idlib region are attempting to shoot down Russian and Syrian warplanes with man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADs), the Rossiya 24 TV revealed on February 27.

In a report, the state-run channel said that Russian and Syrian aircraft are taking counter-measures after carrying out airstrikes on Greater Idlib in order avoid Turkish missiles.

“Syrian and Russian planes are stopping the rebels again and again. But the sky above Idlib is also dangerous. The rebels and Turkish specialists are actively using portable air defense systems,” the channel said, according to Reuters.

Aside from employing air-defense systems, Turkish artillery are also providing Greater Idlib militants with fire support, according to Rossiya 24.

Following the Russian report, a Syrian military source confirmed to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) that Turkish personnel are the ones using MANPADs in Greater Idlib. The source also confirmed that the militants are receiving fire support from Turkish forces.

A day earlier, two Syrian warplanes, one of which an L-39, dodged two anti-aircraft missile while carrying out airstrikes on Greater Idlib.

Rossiya 24’s report was not a surprise. Earlier this month, a pro-opposition news agency shared a video showing the launch of a U.S.-made Stinger missile from a Turkish post in southern Idlib at a Russian Su-24 warplane.

These hostile acts by Turkish forces in Greater Idlib could eventually lead to a direct military confrontation with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), or even Russian forces.

      • David Price

        Putin doesn’t lose his head, in either of the situations you mentioned he is calculating and after his refusal to travel to Turkey Today a large Turkish military convoy was devastated.
        He has played chess with his moves since 2015 and Syria is now to be liberated because Erdogan doesn’t learn but Turkey will,how long do you think the sultan will hold power when Turkey’s young men die for terrorist and Erdogan’s expansion dreams?

        There is, on the right of his comment is a – and an arrow pointing down.
        The – collapses his comment, the arrow requests blocking.

        Just block the twat Its easy.

        Scroll over his comment and you will see a downward arrow. Click on that and follow the prompt.

        • roland

          I don’t like the idea of blocking people unless it’s extremely personal threats or something like that because it’s a form of censorship and there is too much of that in this world

          • FlorianGeyer

            You have a point, but many of them repeatedly troll in order to disrupt discussions. The repeat offenders , I block.

    • EveryoneIsBiased

      I said before, your previous critique of the Idlib deal was spot on, and yes, Putin has personally said he stands by Isreal, and will defend them with Nukes, though everyone has to judge for themselves that fact. IMHO critizing Israel for its often criminal policies is a valid position, but seeing Israel as the only bad actor in the world is delusional, when American, Muslim countries, western, african and asian countires too are often criminally breaking international law.

      But you have to agnolegde, that no matter how bad the Idlib deal was:

      IT IS NOW BEING CORRECTED.
      Since some weeks, the support from Russia could not be better. On ALL levels.
      The bad outcomes of the deal are being corrected. It was late, but NOT TOO LATE.
      And that, is all that counts NOW.

      • occupybacon

        shhh don’t question Putin’s personality cult here

        • EveryoneIsBiased

          I do, as i question every cult. But i also question the Anti-Putin cult..

        • yep

          I would have Putin as president to any recent USA president.
          He at least fights for his country and his people.

    Time to take out Turkroache isis specialists…

  • EveryoneIsBiased

    Good that this is shown in Russian state TV. It will push the patriotic sentiments of the people to the point, where any new concessions to Erdogan become even more unlikely.
    Add to that the fact, that Putin now calls Erdogans bluff anyway, it looks even more dire for the Turkish dog.
    Now lets hope some elite units on reserve are there to take back Saraqib until whole south Idlib is free, and Turkeys game is finished.

    • 1691

      Check RT. You’ll bee surprised! :) re: Saraqib

      • Ronald

        RT claims the SAA is still in control of Saraqib, interesting.

      It is not alone Turkey game, it is USA-Israel-NAT(Turkey) game.

    Turkey requests access from Russia to use armed drones in Syria’s airspace:
    Speaking to reporters in parliament, Akar said Ankara was “hopeful” about ongoing talks between Turkish and Russian officials in Ankara over the northwestern Idlib region, where Turkey’s military is backing militants against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA)

    • FlorianGeyer

      It would be madness for President Putin to ever visit Turkey again as the Turks are likely to murder him.

      • yep

        The reason hi refused last invitation (5th of march) visit is because Erdogan has betrayed his promises from Sochi and Astana.
        There was nothing left to talk about after Erdogan openly announced aggression against Syria..

        Putin is man of his word and Erdogan could screw him only once with his betrayal and double speak.
        Now the masques are removed. The games are over and serious stuff is about to begin

        • FlorianGeyer

          The global Corono virus hysteria, big stock market falls, US and EU debt,tension with Iran, warlike tensions between Russia and Turkey, the climate emergency boondoggle, the Yemen genocide by Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong interference by the US/UK, Trumps popularity,Brexit,all have become a perfect storm for the US/NATO.

          Tis time to find my tin hat I think :)

          • yep

            it is more like instead of a”tin hat” …that we need “tin” sombrero and very big one :)

          • roland

            It looks like this end times shit has happened before as they are finding underground cities all over the place where people went underground to hide from something or other so it might be time to get the shovel out

    great Breaking News for syria….

    the russian Military Leadership just talled the turkish Military to go fuck themselves….no future safe Zone in Idlib, no permission for turkish Aircraft or uav´s to enter syrian airspace!!!!!

      How nice person you are.

  • Boxman

    So this is it; the moment of truth I dreaded since 2015 has come. Russia is about to be exposed as a paper tiger, which we kind of all knew already after Turkey got away with shooting down and murdering a Russian pilot, and after years of watching Israel striking targets throughout Syria without much regard for the vaunted S-400’s or SU-35’s.

    Russia has no choice but to mobilize its nuclear forces and try to scare Turkey and Isreal into backing down. And make no mistake: Turkey and Isreal are on the same team.

    • Lone Ranger

      You aint following news…
      SAA is vaporizing the enemy, right now.
      Russia is such a papertiger it blocked the U.S., UK, France, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey.
      I wish I had half that paper power :)

    • Maluta86

      Let’s just get the record strait. Without NATO and potential nuclear all out exchange, Turkey is not even in the same League with Russia. It’s going to be the same as comparing let’s say Real Madrid to Castile-La Mancha. Turkey could not last even a week against Russia in all out conflict 1vs1. Without any use of tactical or strategical nuclear weapons, Russia can still quite comfortably dismantle Turkish arm forces in 5-7 days and that’s me being overly generous. Turkey does not posses mid or long range Air defense of any type( both against air planes, cruise or balistic weapons), their military doctrine depends on Air superiority fighter to defend their troops and air space. That all works beautifully if you are paired against regional enemies, the likes of Greece. However against Russia that is not going to work and not because Turkey’s air force is much inferior to RuAF, but because they need air fields. Within the first day all vital infrastructure, military facilities and key production facilities would be hit with ballistic and cruise missiles including all air fields and planes that are stationed there. Once they are completely decimated, Russia would start direct flights over Turkish territory, obliterating any moving ground and naval units and would not take them long to destroy all military capabilities. Russia have 72 bomber/attack squadrons. Even if they only used 1/3 would be over in a week.

      That being said Russia would never start or look to start War with Turkey or NATO. Further more Russia is looking to further integrate Turkey in it’s sphere of economic influence and on later stage military economy as well. Russia is actively been trying to avoid confrontation and made concession to Turkey, deescalated several times. I hope Erdogan would back off, but the problem with is first his type of characters and second local culture and mentality – something called “save face”. He needs a small victory or something that would make him look like he is equal partner, that he is not humiliated in any way or he is achieving and wining some of his goals. The problem is that Russians have drown a line and Idlib needs to be cleared of terrorists. I just wonder who is going to blink first as Erdogan also needs Russia in economical terms and also to leverage his position with USA.

    • roland

      It’s pretty obvious isreal has no fear of Russian nuclear weapons they seem to know Russia will not resort to such things plus isreal and its allies seem to posses some unconventional weoponry which scares the shit out of people it’s probably Babylonian shit involving demons and gods and spirits and such like no shit one of the most powerful forces in the world today is a man with tits and a goats head he is one of the ancient demons these zionists masonic illuminati cunts worship

    • JIMI JAMES

      Syrian fighters are tougher than you think,cia muppet pm back then ordered your hato hit,hato are a packa gutless tyrants whom can’t fight for sht. Either way intell is way outta touch,way too unprofessional to render advantage,and no russia ain’t gonna use nukes either,what for,tyrant?

      Well they have the hardest trained military on earth,cia is finished,and you need to wisen up,

    Breaking Sputnik News……… seems like the russian Military is now fed up!!!!

    The Russian military announced Thursday evening that the Syrian air defences downed a Turkish attack drone that violated Syrain airspace and was preparing to carry out strikes against the positions of the government’s forces in Idlib’s Maarzaf area.
    Speaking in a daily briefing, the head of the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation, Rear Admiral Oleg Zhuravlev noted that Ankara keeps violating the agreements reached with Moscow in the Idlib de-escalation zone established in northern Syria.
    “In violation of the Sochi accords, the Turkish side continues to support the actions of illegal armed groups in the Idlib de-escalation zone by artillery fire and the use of reconnaissance and strike drones in attacks on the units of the Syrian armed forces,” Oleg Zhuravlev highlighted.

      • The Farney Fontenoy

        No, Putin is Israel’s man, and is under very tight jewish control, however Russian military will not bow to Israel, last year Shoigu forced Putin to blame Israel, in a humiliating public U-turn after Israel got a Russian spy plane shot down. Putin has very few friends in the military.

        • JIMI JAMES

          No you are just a liar and a flog,who has it in for putin as he don’t respect kweers and you being one of deplorable liars,despite putin contributions is proof you are as your fake zoggie khazar bots,down with your tyranny,RUSSIA STOCKS UP!

          • The Farney Fontenoy

            Please ask families of SAA killed by Turkish drones today what they think of Putin letting Turkey kill their sons.

    an entire turkish Military column was atatcked in Idlib for first time…… 30+ dead, over 70 wounded

  • gustavo

    At least, Russia should tell Turkey not to do that.

  • Peter Jennings

    It’s time to flatten every Turkish observation post before they cause the destruction of Syrian and Russian aircraft. Air supremacy over Idlib is essential for SAA success.

    It won’t be a good year for the Turkish tourist industry. They may as well file for bankruptcy now and get ahead of the rush. Erdogan would rather play his political games than care about the business lost. He also risks bad ties with the only country that was willing to help him during his problem with assassins and regime change agents. Such Ingratitude won’t go unnoticed.

    • Tim Williams

      RuAF leveled one today 30 + Turks dead

      • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. Russian and Turkish servicemen have held a joint patrolling mission in Syria’s Hasakah province, the Russian Center for reconciliation of the conflicting sides in Syria said on Thursday.

    “Another joint Russian-Turkish patrolling mission was carried out along the route of Qamishli — Shayreq — Delliq — Tavrat — Qasra — Duhayt — Tell Boum — Kara Mania — Salam Alayk — Shayreq — Qamishli in Hasakah province,” chief of the Russian reconciliation center Oleg Zhuravlev said.

    Moreover, Russian military police carried out three patrol missions on Aleppo province and one in Hasakah province. Aerial patrolling missions were also carried out from the aerdoromes in Qamishli and Qwaires.

      I guess we shall find out whether the Syrian operated S-300 or the Russian operated S-400 takes them both out.

      • Tim Williams

        overkill … PANTSIR can do it

        • Dick Von Dast’Ard

          Or maybe the UAV’s are assisting Russian military aviation?
          I think many people are reading what is going on, all wrong.

          • Tim Williams

            LOL

          • Dick Von Dast’Ard

            Well that’s my take, don’t see how you can be doing joint patrols and not in some kind of mutual deal and understanding.
            Rarely anything is quite what it seems at face value.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    2 Turkish drones reportedly operating over Idlib, I think if the Russians haven’t already given the SAA heaps of MANPADS, they should now.
    The map looks both good and bad at the same time now, I like all the additional red on the map that’s great, but all the blue dots make it look really ugly at the same time.

    there is another video online that shows Turkish soldiers (or maybe isis with Turkish uniforms) firing a stinger missile against a Russian aircraft. there is a claim that its on the rooftop of a Turkish outpost.
