From David Cenciotti, Aviationist: As Syria and Turkey exchange fire for the seventh straight day, Ankara has announced up to 25 F-16 fighter jets were moved closer to the border, at Diyarbakir airbase. . . .
The multi-role planes, that can be used to both launch air strikes and intercept any Syrian aircraft getting a bit too close to the border, have joined two local-based squadrons of F-16C/D Block 40s (181 and 182 Filo) as well as F-4 Phantom jets (similar to the reconnaissance one shot down inside the Syrian airspace on Jun. 22) already deployed there and involved in previous retaliation attacks.
