BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The first group of Russia’s Aerospace Defense Forces’ helicopters arrived at the Qamishli Airport in the Al-Hasakah Governorate on Tuesday to conduct patrol missions with their Turkish partners.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, two Mi-35 helicopter gunships and an Mi-8 transport helicopter flew from the Khmeimim (Hmeimim) Airbase to Qamishli, which is located some 500 kilometres (310 miles) to the east from of Khmeimim, with the purpose of patrolling the Syrian-Turkish border together with the military police.

The footage released by the Russian MoD shows as well that Qamishli airport is protected by the Pantsir missile system.

The joint Russian-Turkish patrols started after an agreement reached between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Sochi on October 22.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
