Portal Al Masdar News about an attempt by the Syrian air defense to bring down the Turkish Air Force F-200 fighter using the S-16 complex. This happened in the northwest of the country.

This is the seventh downed Turkish drone in the past two days.
There was also information from the American Step News Agency about missile attacks by Russian aviation in the south of Idlib in the region of Jebel Zawiya.

Today, Reuters published information about the hasty buildup of the group of Russian troops in Syria, which has occurred since the death of the Turkish military in Idlib. They refer to data on the movement of ships through the Bosphorus Strait and aviation statistics. Reuters claims that Russia sent five ships via the Bosphorus over the past six days, although according to official statistics there were only two. The agency believes that the Russian Federation began to gradually increase its contingent in Syria since October last year, when the United States began the withdrawal of its troops.
Of great importance for the future fate of Syria may be the negotiations between Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which are scheduled for March 5 in Moscow.
