A very interesting take from a US Air Force intelligence officer claims that it is to provoke the Russians into revealing their new stealth technology radar jammer…
The technology effectively blinded both the US and Israel. None of the radars worked and most, if not all, satellite coverage was lost or compromised as well. But there’s more.
No published source to corroborate any of this.
The more obvious reason is to simply scare the Russians away from the border region so that Turkey’s proxy terrorists can flourish and keep shipping arms and oil. They long for a NATO enforced “no fly zone” of terror.
