On Wednesday, Russia’s Aerospace Force and Turkey’s Air Force are conducting the first joint air operation against the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia) on the outskirts of the al-Bab town in the Aleppo province, Head of the Main Operations Department of Russia’s General Staff Lieutenant-General Sergei Rudskoi told reporters.

“The air operation, agreed on with the Syrian government, involves nine warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Force, including four Sukhoi Su-24M, four Sukhoi Su-25 aircraft and one Sukhoi Su-34 bomber, as well as four F-16 and four F-4 fighters of the Turkey’s Air Force. A total of 36 targets are planned to be hit,” he said.

According to Rudskoi, all the targets have been previously fixed by the two countries’ General Staff and their air force units command. “In the past two days, a reconnaissance mission involving unmanned aircraft and cosmic reconnaissance equipment was carried out in order to help fix the targets,” Rudskoi elaborated.

“The joint airstrikes against the ISIS facilities, delivered by Russia and Turkey, have already proven highly effective,” he noted.

The energy should be focused on Deir Ezzor.
And Turkey is violating Syria’s airspace. The Syria government did not give it permission to do this. Turkey cannot be trusted.

Muy mal Rusia, en estos momentos requiere apoyo aéreo en Dei-Ezzur y no es posible apoyar a un ejercito invasor junto a sus mercenarios.

Apparently they think their response in DeZ will suffice, hope so.

And the point of this is probably to perhaps get to al bab themselves.
