S-400 system scares US and Turkish warplanes away from Syria

Turkish and US warplanes have stopped flights over the territory of Syria after Russia deployed S-400 anti-aircraft system in the region.

According to Hurriyet, the Turkish Air Force stopped flying into Syrian airspace after the Turkish F-16 fighters shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber. According to the publication, Ankara made the decision following the consultations with Moscow that allegedly stopped flying along the Turkish border as well.

However, according to rosbj.ru, Turkish aircraft stopped invading Syrian airspace after Russia deployed S-400 Triumf air defense system in Syria. In addition, as soon as S-400 appeared at Russia's Hmeymim airbase, the number of flights of US aircraft reduced practically to zero. According to experts, the S-400 system covers almost the entire territory of Syria.

Noteworthy, Pentagon officials have recently said that Russia took full control of Syrian airspace as soon as the country deployed S-400 at Hmeymim airbase. Now other countries have to coordinate the flights of its aircraft with the Russian side.
