Russia is calling for greater cooperation with NATO countries flying missions over Syria. Moscow made the call after NATO's chief Stoltenberg said an incursion by Russian airforce jets into Turkish airspace was not an accident.
Turkey is a NATO member, which makes the fact that it is planning to buy anti-aircraft systems from Russia more than a little unusual. Are Ankara and Moscow developing a closer partnership? Miodrag Soric comments.
Turkey has said it sent troops into Idlib province to help establish a de-escalation zone in line with the Astana agreement. Syria has rejected that claim, saying the presence of Turkish troops was at odds with the deal.
According to Israel's military, it struck the Syrian anti-aircraft battery after an Israeli aircraft was targeted over Lebanon. Israel has carried out dozens of attacks on suspected arms shipments to Hezbollah.
