Russian Federation air strike 'accidentally' kills 3 Turkish troops in Syria
Three Turkish soldiers were killed when Russian airplanes carried out airstrikes in an operation against the Islamic State in Syria.
Russian Federation immediately deployed S-400 anti-aircraft missiles at Syria's Hmeimim airbase, weapons capable of striking targets up to 248 miles away; in other words, they could travel as far as Turkish airspace.

The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed on Thursday the accidental strike near the northern Syrian town of Al Bab, which had led to casualties among Turkish military personnel.
The Kremlin said that the leaders agreed after the incident to "enhance military coordination in the course of the operation in Syria against the Islamic State fighters and other extremist organisations".
Army General Valery Gerasimov, chief of the Russian General Staff, spoke on the telephone with his Turkish counterpart, General Hulusi Akaru, to discuss the situation around Al-Bab, and also expressed his condolences.
