BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 P.M.) – A number of Turkish warplanes were spotted flying over Syria’s Aleppo Governorate this afternoon as the situation in northern Syria continues to deteriorate.

According to a military source in Aleppo city, the Turkish warplanes were seen flying over the demilitarized zone in southwest Aleppo and the areas controlled by the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) near the Al-Raqqa border.

In particular, the source said a Turkish warplane was flying over the demilitarized zone around the Rashiddeen suburb, and the towns of Khan Al-Assal and Khan Touman.

While the Turkish jets did fly over the Syrian military’s positions in Aleppo, there is an agreement between the armed forces of Russia and Turkey to monitor the demilitarized zone in northwestern Syria.

Furthermore, the Turkish Air Force informs the Russian military that they intend to enter Syrian airspace, which lowers the Syrian air defense’s alert levels in northern Syria.

The Turkish Air Force has been conducting these overflights since the start of the new year; they have yet to encounter any resistance from the Syrian military.

Where are S-300? TAF is nowhere near having IDF’s ECM and their F-16 are NOT upgraded to latests standards => These are very good preys for S-300!
