Det ryska plan som Turkiet sköt ner vid gränsen mellan Syrien och Turkiet hade alltså två besättningsmän. Båda sköt ut sig i fallskärm, de blev beskjutna från marken på väg ned i fallskärmarna. Piloten blev dödad, men hans medhjälpare klarade sig och har nu räddats av syriska och ryska trupper. Han säger att de inte var över turkiskt territorium. Han säger också att de inte fick någon som helst varning, varken över radio eller genom att det turkiska planet gick upp jämsides.

”There were no warnings. Not via the radio, not visually. There was no contact whatsoever. That’s why we were keeping our combat course as usual. You have to understand what the cruising speed of a bomber is compared to an F-16. If they wanted to warn us, they could have shown themselves by heading on a parallel course. But there was nothing. And the rocket hit our tail completely unexpectedly. We didn’t even see it in time to take evasive maneuvers.”

I officiella turkiska uttalanden igår sa man att man hade varnat det ryska planet 10 gånger under 5 minuter. Om man tittar på kartan över området så är det en smal tunga av turkiskt territorium som går ner mot Syrien, det är bara drygt 2 km brett. Och även om det ryska planet höll väldigt låg fart så skulle det ta max 20 sekunder att passera det turkiska området.

NATO members failed to come out with a unified show of support to Turkey following an emergency meeting it called on Tuesday. There were also serious concerns about Turkish conduct and discord about the crash location, sources say.

On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a press conference: “We also know the statement made by the [NATO] secretary general was not agreed by all [NATO members]. He, so to say, took responsibility and listened to leading NATO members.”
Lavrov added “there were quite unpleasant assessments of Turkey for [its] attack on the Russian warplane, but well-known allied solidarity has prevailed.”
”There were serious disagreements during the discussion of the Su-24 incident at the meeting. Some envoys were very cautious and reserved about Turkish complaints,” the source close to NATO also told RIA Novosti.

rt.com – Ankara’s oil business with ISIS

Moscow has accused Turkey of helping Islamic State in the illegal oil trade which helps finance the terrorist group. According to analysts, Russian airstrikes in Syria are disrupting the profitable deals for Turkish middlemen, including Ankara officials.
Turkish social media has posted photos of Turkish President Recep Erdogan’s son Necmettin Bilal having dinner in an Istambul restaurant with an alleged ISIS leader, who it is claimed participated in massacres in Syria’s Homs and Rojava, the Kurdish name for Syrian Kurdistan or Western Kurdistan.

Intressant klipp från Fox News där en amerikansk pensionerad general (tror jag) intervjuas. Han uttalar sig sansat och förnuftigt och menar att Turkiet agerat ansvarslöst.
