Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct.5
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

Russian Air Force planes involved in the military operation in Syria, violated Turkey's airspace Oct.3, the message from Turkey's Foreign Ministry said Oct.5.

Earlier, Russia's President Vladimir Putin appealed to the country's Federation Council to authorize using Russian armed forces abroad. The Federation Council granted the request.

The head of the Kremlin administration Sergei Ivanov told reporters Sept. 30 that the decision includes only the use of the air force and the military goal of the operations is exclusively air support of the Syrian government forces.

Russia earlier sent its warplanes to Syria after the request from Damascus.

Russian air forces have also been reported to deliver strikes on positions of the "Islamic State" in Syria.
