Turkey has reported a third incident in which an unidentified Mig-29 – which analysts say may have been Syrian – locked its radar onto Turkish jets for more than five minutes on Sunday over the Turkish-Syrian border.
“Russia must deconflict its military activities in Syria”, he said and added that an initial assessment of the incidents indicated “that it doesn’t look like an accident”. He famous that they can “survived for quite a time”.
