Russia’s Ex-Security Chief Says Russian Fighter Jets Would Likely Bomb Turkish, Saudi Troops In Syria

The former Head of Russia’s Federal Security Service Nikolai Kovalyov warned Turkey and Saudi Arabia against sending ground troops to Syria, saying that Russian fighter jets would likely launch airstrikes on their positions in the war-torn country, Iran’s Fars News Agency reports.

“The Turkish and Saudi officials are well aware that in case of deployment of their forces in the Syrian territories, the Russian air force will likely bomb them,” Kovalyov, also a member of the State Duma’s security and resistance to corruption committee, was quoted as saying by al-Mayadeen news channel on Tuesday.

“If the Saudi and Turkish ground forces enter Syria, they cannot be distinguished from the terrorists and Russia will act upon the demand of the legal Syrian government,” he added.

The remarks came following an announcement from Saudi Arabia and Turkey that they plan to send ground forces to Syria.
