Turkey gebruikt dronevloot tegen Syrische regime

March 4, 2020 - Turkije heeft tientallen op afstand bedienbare vliegtuigen ingezet om door
Rusland gesteunde Syrische regeringstroepen onder vuur te nemen als
vergelding voor het doden van Turkse soldaten in noordwest-Syrië.

The series of strikes by unprecedented numbers of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) targeted Syrian bases and chemical warfare depots, Bloomberg said, citing the Turkish military. Turkey also located and destroyed some Syrian missile defence systems, raising questions about the effectiveness of the Russian-made equipment intended to deter such air attacks.

The tactic threatens to bring NATO member Turkey into direct confrontation with Russia, Bloomberg said.
