Russia cannot guarantee the safety of Turkish aviation in Syria after closing the skies over Idlib, said Oleg Zhuravlev, head of the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties.

Rear Admiral recalled that the Syrian authorities were forced to take such a step against the backdrop of a sharply aggravated situation in the airspace over the province.

In late January, the Syrian army launched an offensive in the province against terrorists.
A few days later, Turkish authorities reported losses among military personnel due to the actions of Damascus.

In addition, Ankara reported a retaliatory strike against government forces and numerous losses in the Syrian army. Subsequently, the Russian Center for Reconciliation denied this information.
