Die Beziehungen zwischen Russland und Türkei bleiben in Syrien extrem ambivalent.
Russland bombardierte wieder Stellungen der pro-türk. Gruppierungen. Türkei zeigte sich empört.
Zugleich patrouillieren die Länder in manchen syr. Provinzen gemeinsam.
Überblick im Thread 👇
(1/6)
Seit mehreren Wochen bombardiert Russland wieder die Stellungen der pro-türk. Gruppierungen in den Provinzen #Idlib und #Aleppo.
Insbesondere die Ölinfrastruktur wird systematisch zerlegt, um die Gruppen von ihrer wichtigsten Geldquelle abzuschneiden

Die Türkei zeigte sich empört.
Russlands Angriffe würden zivile Ziele treffen, so Ankara.
Das kennt man aber auch schon von früher, als Ankara hinter jeder Stellung und jedem Waffenlager ihrer Proxies ein "letztes Krankenhaus" erklärte.
