Turkey Accuses Russia Of Violating Its Airspace Near The Syria Border Again

Reuters: Turkey says Russian jet violated its airspace again, warns of consequences

Turkey warned of consequences on Saturday after saying a Russian SU-34 jet had violated its airspace despite warnings, once more stoking tensions between two countries involved in Syria's war, but Russia denied that there had been any incursion.

In a similar incident in November, Turkey shot down a Russian warplane flying a sortie over Syria that it said had violated its airspace, triggering a diplomatic rupture in which Russia imposed economic sanctions.

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov denied that any Russian plane had entered Turkish airspace, and called the Turkish allegation "pure propaganda".

WNU Editor,

The Turks say they detected an SU-34M on radar.

The Russians pointed out that while you can detect aircraft on radar, radar doesn't tell you the make and model of the aircraft, only visual id's do, so, if there was an aircraft, it could have been anybody's, but it wasn't Russia's.

Only over northern Turkey where the TAF is bombing their own Kurds.
