Is Russia Making A Move To Justify Attacking Syria?

Ever since the Syrians helped us take out ISIS, countries seem to be itching to attack the Eastern Mediterranean country. Russia is now claiming that Syrians launched missiles at a Nordwind Airlines Airbus A320, A Russian Airlines, which was en route to Tatarstan from Egypt. The passenger plane somehow made the flight unscathed despite being fired upon, and even Russian experts are calling foul on this claim.

Two missiles were reportedly fired at a Russian plane with at least 159 passengers on board flying over Syrian territory.

On Monday Interfax cited “an informed source in Moscow,” which reported that a Russian passenger plane was attacked while flying over a mountainous area of Syria.

“Syrian [officials] informed us that on Monday morning, unidentified forces launched two ground-to-air missiles which exploded in the air very close to a civilian aircraft belonging to a Russian airline,” the source told the Russian agency.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said on its website the plane’s crew at 4:55 pm Moscow time (12:55 GMT) “detected battle action on the ground that, according to the crew, could constitute a threat to the 159 passengers on board the plane.”

The ministry is now “taking emergency measures to clarify all the circumstances of this situation, including making contact with the Syrian authorities,” spokesperson Aleksandr Lukashevich said.”

Meanwhile, Syrian aviation authorities received no indication of the alleged attack on the Russian plane, says the director of Syrian Airlines, Ghaida Abdullatif:“We contacted the service that monitors traffic within Syrian airspace. None of the air traffic control services or other ground services at the airports in Damascus and Latakia have confirmed the information of a Russian plane being fired at”.

Russian experts believe that, so far, there are no grounds to claim that the aircraft became a target of a missile attack. Moreover, some of them voiced their doubts that a passenger plane can actually perform the kind of maneuvers that would allow it to avoid a missile attack.

“Planes are usually attacked either from the side or from above. A pilot could not have seen the missiles,” Vladimir Gerasimov, a Russian pilot and an expert on flight security told RT.

“A passenger plane crew simply couldn’t see what’s behind. And if something is approaching the plane from the opposite direction – the speed doubles, so there is no time to do anything,” he added.”

It looks like Russia maybe after the Syrian Oil Fields. But I guess Russian experts were not aware they were supposed to be cashing the govt’s check about Syrians attacking a civilian plane.
