The Russian Air Force did not need to attack Turkey directly in order to retaliate; instead, they have responded to the Turkish military aggression with an increase in the number of airstrikes over the Turkmen Mountains (Jabal Al-Turkmen), Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad), and the Prophet Jonah Mountains (Jabal Nabi Younis) of northern Latakia.

According to several battlefield reports from local sources in northern Latakia, the Russian Air Force’s SU-24 fighter jets and their MI-24 Hind Helicopter Gunships have already conducted three dozen airstrikes over the Turkmen Mountains, Kurdish Mountains, and the Prophet Jonah Mountains, while following the same route their downed pilots took the day they were shot down by the Turkish Air Defense.

The field source further added that the Russian Air Force has been ordered to respond to any-kind of provocation next to the Turkish-Syrian border; meaning, the Russian Air Force has been given the green light to retaliate against any group that fire on their aircraft.

The Turkish government believes they have a moral obligation to protect the Turkmen people living in northern Syria (specifically northern Latakia, despite the fact that this territory is internationally recognized as Syria – not Turkey.

The Russian Federation’s president, Vladimir Putin, has stated that Russia will not militarily retaliate against Turkey; however, he did warn that any future attack on Russian military assets will not go unpunished.

Thank you for your fine reports. The SU 24 bombers are presumably accompanied by SU 30 air superiority fighters for their protection. Turkey today backtracked anyway , Davutoglou saying that he does not want to risk the ”good relations” . Real cowardice behaviour.

Andrew Korybko writting for Global Research make a good case that USA setup Turkey and Russia. http://www.globalresearch.ca/ Turkey had to know in advance how NATO would react. This is why Turkey called the special meeting ASAP. However, Erdogan could not have know that US military would purposely leak a statement saying that the Turkey downed the Russian plane in Syrian airspace. Was this another April Glaspie moment? Did Erdogan get setup based on the likely response of Russia and Turkey and the economic damage it would cause? It is clear that there was much to loose and little to gain… Read more »
