Ankara, Nov 25 () - The Turkish Air Force has increased the number of warplanes patrolling the Turkish-Syrian border to 18 after the downing of a Russian jetfighter by a Turkish F-16 on Nov. 24 triggered unprecedented tension between Ankara and Moscow.

The intensification of the aerial protection of Turkish airspace was announced by a routine daily statement of the Chief of General Staff that declared that the Turkish-Syrian border was now being patrolled by 18 F-16s.

Turkey has always patrolled its airspace with F-16s, but the number of warplanes on duty was no more than 12, even during early October when Russian jetfighters first violated Turkish airspace.

The move follows Russia’s statement that it would continue its military operations near the Turkish border and that it would deploy high-tech air defense systems to Syrian bases.
