TRIPOLI, October 7 (RIA Novosti) - A Libyan Air Force MiG-23 Flogger fighter crashed on Wednesday during a demonstration flight at the Third Libyan Aviation Exhibition. The aircraft crashed about 2 kilometers from observation platforms at the Libyan Aviation Conference & Exhibition, which runs October 4-8. According to preliminary reports, the pilot died. Production of the "third-generation" MiG-23 started in 1970 and ended in 1985 with over 5,000 aircraft built. Its various modifications are currently operated by several former Soviet republics and traditional recipients of Soviet arms including Armenia, Algeria, Angola, Belarus, Cuba, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Sri Lanka, Syria, Turkmenistan, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

Turkey should not even be in natio, and after denial port access,and land access, and air access for Iraq Turkey should be on their own.
What goes around comes around Turkey should not even violated Syrian airspace and yet they did.
If this escalated anymore more which I don't think it will they still have Russia,China,and Iran in the mix.

And, if I might speculate further, these S300 batteries are manned by Syrians as well as Russians. What would be the implication of Russians helping Syrians shoot down a NATO aircraft?
And furthermore, how would Russia deal with a NATO air campaign killing Russian nationals on the ground in Syria?

Why would Israel fire nukes at allies??
I would not be surprised if Assad deployed chem agents though.
