With 2 Syrian Su-24s and 6 Turkish drones shot down in 24 hours, is the conflict in Syria about to rock?

In the past 24 hours, even as Russian President V. Putin and his Turkish counterpart RT Erdogan have interviewed on the phone to try to defuse the spiral From a commitment to work in Syria, the confrontations on the ground have taken a new step towards a more global, and massive, engagement between the belligerents. On the Turkish side, we claim the destruction of 2 Syrian Su-24 aircraft, shot down by its F16s, as well as multiple drone strikes that destroyed many tanks, artillery pieces and even a Pantsir S1 anti-aircraft system, in an operation called "Spring Shield" launched in retaliation for the death of its 34 soldiers a few days ago.

On the Syrian side, we admit the destruction of a Su-24 and an L-39 training and attack aircraft, otherwise difficult to deny given the videos published showing their destruction. On the other hand, we claim the destruction of 6 combat drones. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announces for its part an assessment of 19 Syrian soldiers killed by the Turkish strikes.
