It is noted that Russian planes destroyed the terrorist training base, to which militants and instructors arrived across the Turkish border from different countries of the world, including the CIS countries. Press Service of the Ministry of Defense cites the statement of Igor Konashenkov:
In the province of Idlib, the Su-34 bomber destroyed a large training camp of terrorists, where there were a large number of instructors who arrived from neighboring countries of Syria. Information about this camp, where among the terrorists who arrived from the territory of Turkey, a significant proportion were citizens of the CIS countries, came from the patriotic Syrian opposition.
General Konashenkov noted that the data on the terrorist training camp were repeatedly checked, after which an air strike was struck at the site.
A spokesman for the Defense Ministry said that the number of fakes in the Western media and so-called international human rights organizations regarding the Russian operation in Syria is multiplying. According to Konashenkov, the report Amnesty International about the deaths of civilians in Syria, allegedly as a result of strikes by Russian aviation, consists of continuous dies. The representative of the Defense Ministry of Russia called such charges unsubstantiated.

According to Igor Konashenkov, the Turks knew exactly the time and area of the combat mission performance by the Su-24 crew.
Thus, 24 November, when the Turkish fighter treacherously attacked our bomber Su-24 with a rocket, the Turkish General Staff was well aware of the time and in which area a pair of Russian bomber would perform the combat mission.
