Russia began airstrikes in Syria on Wednesday, with President Vladimir Putin saying he is targeting ISIS, but at least some of the strikes appear to have hit Western-backed rebel factions.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has condemned the strikes, saying it’s “absolutely clear” that Russia is not discriminating between ISIS and the groups opposing Assad.
“As a result they’re actually backing the butcher Assad and helping him and really making the situation worse,” Cameron said.
The Russian jet left Turkish airspace and returned to Syria after it was intercepted by two F-16s from the Turkish air force, which were conducting patrols in the region, the foreign ministry statement said.
It added that Ankara has “strongly protested this violation, demanded that any such violation not be repeated and affirmed that, otherwise, the Russian Federation will be responsible for any undesired incident that may occur.”
Turkey’s foreign minister called Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov “to reiterate the views stated above and express our reaction,” the statement continued.
