This comes as a reaction to the air strikes carried out by Turkey in northern Syria on Thursday night, reported Reuters.

“Every attempt of Turkish fighter aircraft to breach Syrian airspace once more will be resisted and aircraft will be shot down via all means available,” read the statement of the Syrian army’s high command.
