The position area was completely ruined thanks to Russian anti-radar missiles, which have successfully justified their mission.

“In early March, in Syria, with the help of anti-radar missiles, the Su-34 destroyed an early warning radar of the enemy,” the Huanqiu news publication reports.

At the moment, it remains unknown how exactly the terrorists were able to build early-warning radars in Syria.

However, obviously, the latter did not exist for very long, and since Russia has enough funds to detect the enemy’s radio-electronic radiation.

It should be clarified that it is likely that it was thanks to the early warning radars used by the terrorists that the militants were able to destroy several Syrian military aircraft, knowing in advance about their approach, however, it is also important to clarify that the Russian airborne forces were not previously informed of such an operation, all the more, that it was at the beginning of March that Russia and Turkey reached an agreement on de-declaring the conflict in Syria.

Background

In February, Turkey lost at least 62 troops killed in Syria, nearly 100 soldiers were wounded, dozens of Turkish armored vehicles were destroyed and more than ten drones, including drone, were shot down. Washington has repeatedly accused Moscow of involvement in the deaths of Turkish soldiers, Russia rejects these allegations.

In early March, the presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, concluded an agreement according to which a ceasefire came into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would be able to use force.

The reason for the Russian-Turkish negotiations was a sharp aggravation of the situation in Idlib, where in January a large-scale offensive by the Syrian army against the positions of the armed opposition and terrorists began.

Government forces recaptured nearly half of the Idlib de-escalation zone and left behind a number of Turkish observation posts. After that, Ankara sharply increased its military contingent in the region and launched the operation “Spring Shield” to push the Syrian troops. Turkey is also supported by militants loyal to it.
