Accordign to them we are talking about at least one Russian Su-34 fighter and Syrian fighter-bombers Su-22, which attacked the positions of jihadists in the southern part of Idlib province. The defeat of combat aircraft was avoided due to the timely shooting of heat traps.

On the presented video frames you can see how the Su-34 fighter-bomber, after striking at the positions of the militants, fires heat traps and tries to escape from the shelling of Turkish MANPADS. Similar cases, according to other sources, were also observed with the Syrian Air Force.

All three attempts to defeat military aircraft were recorded from almost the same area, and not only the militants, but also the Turkish military are here, which confirms the theory that it was Erdogan’s troops who tried to destroy the Russian and Syrian bombers.

The Russian side has not yet commented the information that appeared about attempts by Turkish and pro-Turkish troops to bring down Russian aircraft.

However, given the video that appeared on the Web, it is logical to assume that militants often attempt to destroy Russian combat aircraft, which creates certain risks.
