BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has shot down another Turkish military drone that was seen flying towards their positions in northwestern Syria this week.

According to Yusha Yuseef of Muraselon News, a Bayraktar drone was shot down by the Syrian Arab Army on Tuesday in the western countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

The downing of the Turkish drone marks the sixth time in the last 48 hours that the Syrian Arab Army has downed an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) belonging to Ankara.

At the same time, the Turkish military has shot down another Syrian aircraft, bringing the total of downed jets to three in the past 48 hours.

The Turkish military has effectively blocked Syrian aircraft from flying near their border, which would benefit the militant forces in Idlib, if not for the heavy strikes launched by the Russian Air Force.
