The Syrian army announced on Sunday imposing a no-fly-zone over the country’s battlefield Idlib Province, saying any hostile aircraft will be targeted, according to the state news agency SANA.

The airspace over northwestern Syria, particularly Idlib, is closed to any flight or drones and any aircraft violating the airspace will be dealt with as a hostile target and will be shot down, said the statement.

The new decision comes on the heels of the current tension with Turkey, which is backing the rebel groups in Idlib.

Sehr gut und absolut notwendig. Viele im Westen sind naiv und glauben auch nach 9 Jahren Krieg immer noch daran, dass die sogenanten Rebellen Demokratie wollen. Das stimmt nicht. Wir können Nordsyrien nicht Al Qaida überlassen. Auch dann nicht, wenn die Türken Al Qaida “kontrollieren”. Die Türken spielen ihr eigenes Spiel und wollen ihr Sultant ausweiten. Das ist inakzeptabel. Jeder Staatschef der EU sollte nachdenken oder die Klappe halten. Schluss mit der Kriegstreiberei des ewigen Schüler Macron oder Außenminister-Schauspieler Maas. So wie wir zu recht Al Qaida in Afghanisten bekämpfen, bekämpfen die Syrer Al Qaida in Nordsyrien und das ist… Read more »

I thought they were useless and completely incapable to destroying anything ? funny you suddenly seem to develop faith in Russian gear when it comes to countries you’d like destroyed. Not that I don’t want the Turks to get utterly toasted here myself, but the irony of you babbling about none other than the S-300 (and not even 400 !) is quite the fun to read.

I was smiling at your comments as well. Those are better platforms than the US has. They have managed to keep Israeli planes out of Syrian airspace. Despite claims to the contrary, most if not all recent Jewish attacks come from outside of Syrian airspace and most are intercepted.

He is is an Israeli troll pretending to be against Wahhabi militants just to advance his pathetic anti-Iran and Hezbollah agenda.

I think most of his BS comments have been filtered out already, if you pay attention you’ll see that he’s been remained oddly silent in the vast majority of articles where he otherwise would absolutely not resist the urge to drop his usual precious archives of his dead darling called the Shah and classic compilations of Hasbarah portfolios making a mockery of UN-recognized Palestinian Territories on middle-eastern maps, not to mention his pathological obsession with nukes.
