VIDEO: Turkish Troops Fire Missile at Russian Strike Aircraft

Video evidence of Turkish-Russian acts of war in Syria

Thursday, during the Turkish and rebel vs Syrian and Russian battle of Nairab:

The HD video (at 1:54) leaves no doubt these are indeed Turkish soldiers:

It is in the realm of possibility that the Turkish soldiers thought it was a Syrian Su-24, but it was in fact a Russian one. Or maybe they knew that. The Russians sport a different color scheme and only the Russians carry external fuel tanks:

Another video from Nairab battle shows that Turkish soldiers are intermingled with rebels as sort of advisers and leaders. As munitions drop from the air the rebels immediately drop their weapons to record with their phones. The only person with a rifle in hand is a Turkish soldier yelling at them to get back to cover:

Erdo is desperate to distract attention from economic collapse at home and a fresh disaster unfolding in Libya where he backed the wrong horse. A war, even a calamitous one, is a risk he’s willing to take.

Stinger based air defences are relatively obsolete and easily neutralized by modern day ECM counter measures. To show the hopelessness of Turkish air defense dilemma they want Patriot missile batteries, knowing very well they are unreliable and very expensive.

AND even then, as displayed in Saudi Arabia, useless against incoming.

Scary stuff.

But I find it hard to believe that even Erdogan will seriously try to challenge Russia.

Russia has complete air superiority.

Russia has not yet deployed sufficient air power to cope with the Zionist air force as well as with the US and Turkish air power at the same time…..but enough to act as deterrent……if any of those imbeciles dare to try out, well the whole hell will be released upon them……and they know

Erdo imagines that he can brinkmanship his way out of this and pretend that he’s won a “victory”. He’s wrong.

Erdo is afraid that after liberating Idlib the next, logical and inevitable target for Syria will be Afrin. Turkey has been frantically colonising Afrin ever since kicking out the Kurdish traitors who refused to hand the city over to the SAA. Now not only has Afrin been ethnically cleansed of Kurds, the Turks have Turkified it with Turkish currency, mobile phone networks, and Turkish as the medium of instruction in schools. All that effort to annex the place is about to go belly up, and it would be a defeat so catastrophic that Erdo couldn’t bluster his way out of it. Any amount of effort to keep Afrin must seem acceptable to Sultan Erdogan.

Has anyone mentioned to Mr Erdogan that, while the US is a vassal state of the Jewish World Order, If Turkey started a fuss with Russia, Washington would forget Turkey instantly?
America is not going to go to war with Russia to save Turkey.

Erdogan is a lunatic and imbecile; in a war between Turkey and Syria, both armies would be significantly weakened. The USA and Israel would immediately create greater Kurdistan, which Syria and Turkey, in their weakened state, could not oppose.

The Turks are like the Poles. When I was growing up, there are so many jokes about the Poles (Polacks). The Turks (Turkeys) are not far behind.

Do these two bumbling foolish nations know how to show straight?!? Russia has not forgotten that a Russian SU-24 that was “accidentally” shot down by the Turks in 2014, killing the pilot (by the terrorists on the ground). Revenge is best served hot!

Russian suctions imposed following this incident cost the Turk economy between 10-20 billion USD–I suspect Erdogan seeks to distract from the deepening crises in their economy.
the turks only retain support from a few turkic nations, Azerbaijan, etc—they r detested by all their neighbors

10-20 billion USD?!? That’s complete bullshit. Their total bilateral trade is somewhere around 25-30 billion USD. Where are you getting such a figure that Russian sanctions cost the Turks that amount of loss???
