The Russian Defense Ministry said that Russian and Syrian radars proved that Belgian jets struck a Syrian village of Hassajek.
The Russian Defense Ministry will unveil flight path details of the Belgian Air Force jets at the time of the deadly strike on a village near Aleppo in Syria, Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Thursday.
“Russia has effective air defense means to maintain round the clock monitoring of the air situation over almost the entirety of Syria. Besides us, Syrian air defense systems that have been restored over the past year control airspace… Not to be unfounded, today we will present information about the flight route and the actions of the Belgian Air Force and US Air force aircraft in Syrian airspace on October 18,” Konashenkov said.
The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said it had received local reports of an airstrike by Belgian F-16 fighter jets on Kurdish positions in the village of Hassajek. Neither Russian, nor Syrian aircraft were in the area, while the Belgian defense minister dismissed claims of responsibility.
