Turkish airforce runs and hides from Russian retaliation


Russian Air Force Annihilated Militants In Area Where Su-24 Was Shot Down. Erdogan Ordered Turkish Air Force Planes Be Grounded


Information has come from  Syrian sources that last night (24.11) the Russian Aerospace Defence Forces struck with massive attacks on the positions of militants (including Turkomans) in the region where the Russian Su-24 was brought down.

The source reported that most likely nothing remains of the militants who shot down the Russian MI-8 .

No detailed information has arrived yet.

Meanwhile, there has appeared information that the Turks are not putting their fighters in the air after the majority of them were lit up by Russian radar (the S-300 and, according to early reports, possibly the S-400). After the statement of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, Turkey is afraid that their planes can be destroyed when approaching the border.

In this regard the Syrians reported that the Russia air-space forces can begin the full-scale destruction of camps in the border territory, and also annihilate the retreating militants and the fuel trucks which are moving towards Turkey.

Erdogan did not receive the hoped-for support from NATO. Erdogan has acknowledged that if the Russian plane even violated the border of Turkey, this was for only for 17 seconds, which means that the Turkish Air Force, on purely physical grounds, could not have reacted to it if the provocation was not prepared in advance. This figure of 17 seconds appears in NATO reports.

Members of NATO have been ambiguously treating Erdogan’s action. At present it is difficult to judge how the situation will develop. While it is obvious that Erdogan is attempting to back off, it is already too late, as Vladimir Putin gave to understand at a meeting with the king of Jordan.

Most likely Turkey did not expect such a severe reaction from Russia.

    Early days to predict anything. As I said on another comment, compared to Russia, Turkey is nothing.

        TEHRAN (FNA)- Yemen’s army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait, the sixth Saudi vessel sinking in waters offshore Yemen in the last one month.

        The Saudi warship was targeted with Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters in the province of Ta’iz today.

        The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets at residential areas in Ta’iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.

        This is the sixth time that a Saudi warship is sent deep into the waters of Bab al-Mandab Strait by the Yemeni forces.

    The coward thought NATO would protect him.. He warned Putin to stop hitting the oil convoy days before. This Turkey is cooked just in time for thanksgiving….!

    Traditionally the military has stepped when it disapproves of the govt in Turkey.

    Davutoğlu claimed that Turkish F-16 jets opened fire at the Russian warplane while it was in Turkish airspace,

    although radar printouts shared by Turkey’s General Staff appeared to show that the plane was hit in Syrian airspace.

    U.S. Launch Military Offensive Against Turkey For Killing 12 Marines

    Posted on February 12, 2016.


    U.S. set to attack Turkey after Turkish military kill 12 marines

    A Ministry of Defence report says that the U.S. was granted permission by the Russian Aerospace Forces (AF) to fly over the Syrian city of Aleppo in order to completely obliterate 7 command and control centers operated by Turkish intelligence.

    The reason for the attack is due to the Turkish air force downing 2 US Marine helicopters, killing all 12 soldiers aboard, on the 14th January.

    Whatdoesitmean.com reports:

    Though the Obama regime has kept hidden from its citizens Turkey’s deliberate murdering of these 12 US Marine heroes, this report notes, yesterday’s events prove that it wasn’t being forgotten—and which began when Russian commanders contacted the US Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) at the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar as to the intentions of two US Air Force A-10 “Warthog” fighter bombers that had taken off from their Incirlik Air Base (IAB) in Turkey and were flying in a holding pattern just north of the Syrian border.

    Upon being advised by the CAOC of the “revenge mission” these A-10 fighter bombers were tasked to perform, this report continues, Russian commanders then requested a pubic statement be made by the Obama regime stating that no Aerospace Forces personal, equipment or aircraft would be the target (either intended or unintended) of the Americans—and which within 20 minutes was complied with when US Army Colonel Steve Warren, a spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF–OIR), in Baghdad, Iraq, stated that the US military has no current plans to intervene against the Syrian regime and Russian assault on Aleppo or provide air drops to the starving civilians and that “the situation in and around Aleppo has, in our view, become dire” but “our focus really is to defeat ISIL, so that’s where our focus remains.”

    Immediately upon Russian commanders receiving this public statement of “intention of non-aggression” against Federation forces from the Obama regime, this report says, permission was granted for these two US Air Force A-10 warplanes to enter into Syria, overfly Aleppo, and make complete their “revenge” combat mission against Turkey.

    Most outlandishly, this report shockingly details, immediately after these US Air Force A-10 warplanes completed their “revenge” mission and returned to Turkish airspace, US Army Colonel Warren in Baghdad then “blatantly lied” when he released a statement saying Aerospace Forces had just bombed two hospitals in Aleppo—which then caused Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov to retaliate against by stating that “Yesterday, at 13:55 Moscow time (10:55 GMT), two American A-10 assault aircraft entered Syrian airspace from Turkey, flew right to the city of Aleppo and bombed targets there.”
