Turkey downs drone as Syria launches Aleppo offensive

“Turkey shot down a drone on Friday in an incident highlighting the dangers of multiple air combat operations over Syria, where government troops and their allies backed by Russian jets have launched an offensive against rebels near Aleppo.”

On 14 OCT 15 NEC-SE posted the article: Who’s in charge? Who is responsible? What are they responsible for?

In the article we stated:  “NEC-SE predicts that Turkey will soon have to deal with over flights of its territory by Russian cruise missiles launched from Caspian Sea-based Russian warships, as well as incursions into its airspace by Russian warplanes. The removal of the Patriot batteries raises concerns that the U.S. and Germany will be leaving Turkish skies—and, critically, the civilian aircraft that transit them—defenseless to the Russian weapons.”
