Russia Calls for Airport Closure in Northern Iraq Due to Special Operation in Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russia announced that it aims to launch an operation in Syria against ISIL, urging Iraqi officials to cancel all flights in Erbil and Suleimaniyah airports in order to prevent any hazardous incidents from happening.

Russia has announced that it is set to launch an extensive military operation codenamed “pervasive destruction”, using 69 Sukhoi fighters, Tupolev bomber 160, submarines and ships in Mediterranean Sea, Itartas reported.

Russia has, thus, urged Iraq to put a halt to the operation of Erbil and Suleimaniyah airports in a move to prepare for the upcoming military operations.

Russia, which has launched its air strikes since some time ago aims to extend its destructive operation. This move comes as a Russian fighter has recently been shot down by Turkish army in Syria.

Russia generally launches its cruise missile attacks against ISIL from the Caspian Sea, which necessarily move across the airspace of Iran and Northern Iraq before reaching Syrian territory. Russia has officially asked for these two countries’ permission to use their airspace.

  1. Good Laura. GPD sometimes makes some “writing” mistakes, sorry to have to say this, but it seems that GPD has been ISIS infiltrated. Also, does not let some replies being included, without any reasonable cause, particularly when deals with nukes, Israel or its strategically related. I don´t think that the highly respected Jim Dean analysis has anything to do with it..

  2. Quoting;- “Russia, which has launched its air strikes since some time ago aims to extend its destructive operation. This move comes as a Russian fighter has recently been shot down by Turkish army in Syria.”

    Somebody help me out here, are they in fact referring to the SU24 shoot-down ? Or have the pesky Turks been at it again, and I missed this one ???? They mention “Fighter”, not Fighter-bomber. Gordon, Ian, help me out here chaps if you’d be so kind .
