ANKARA (Sputnik) – The Turkish General Staff accused Syrian air defense system radars on Wednesday of "harassing" its aircraft on the Turkish-Syrian border.

On Tuesday, the Turkish General Staff said an unidentified MiG-29 followed its F-16 fighters that were patrolling the Turkish-Syrian border and activated its target system for 4.5 minutes the previous day.
