Yeah, but SAA should better move their S-200 and Pantsir there : they’d be more useful than risking a 2nd conflict at shooting at Israelis which have never started a single war.
As long as they don’t provoke Israelis, they won’t come in harm’s way! The problem is Erdogan, not Netanyahu!
SAA must stop acting stupid!
