The Syrian Army warned that its air defenses would shoot down any aircraft violating the country's airspace.

"Any aircraft which violate Syria's airspace will be treated as enemy military targets...They will be tracked immediately after detection and destroyed immediately after violating our airspace," Syrian Armed Forces Command said in a press statement on Saturday.

According to the military, air defense troops have received orders to defend the country's airspace "by all available means."

The Turkish military and Turkish-backed militias and Syrian forces engaged in a shooting war in Syria's Idlib province following a Syrian artillery attack on a hostile observation post last week.

Damascus began an operation in the province in December amid repeated attacks on its forces by terrorist militants operating in the region.
