Russia banned the Turkish jets from flying over Syria, including the Kurdish territories.

According to sources, this decree of Russia comes after the downing of an aircraft of the country by the Turkish-led Tahrir al-Sham fighters in Idlib, a city in northwestern Syria which caused the death of the captain of the aircraft.

“No official statements have so far been made by any sides, but Russia has temporarily banned the Turkish jets from flying over Syria,” reads an article of Metehan Demir, a Turkish reporter, published in Super Haber newspaper.

Tahrir al-Sham fighters on February 3 downed a Russian jet in Syria.

Turkey on January 20th launched a new air and ground operation on Afrin, dubbed “Olive Branch Operation” which resulted in the killing and wounding of at least 500 civilians so far.
