Which is exactly what the system is designed to do. Defend the airspace against INCOMING aircraft and missiles. Unfortunately it ranged in on the wrong aircraft that was ENTERING their airspace.
The Tornado GR4 - one of four based at RAF Marham in Norfolk - was on its final approach when a Patriot battery, designed to protect the airfield from missile attack, locked on to it.
Also, the confusion is called the Fog of War. Just as how both sides have been smearing the truth as to which side is killing civilians. The answer is both.
Now Imagine these missiles accidently cough cough firing on a Iranian or Russian Aircraft
Simple, Iranian or Russian aircraft shouldn't accidentally, or otherwise without permission be in Turkish airspace. If they did then your source obviously shows what could happen.
Cough Cough Weeez Gag......
