Russian warplane downing to cost Turkey dear: Iran general

 

 
A senior Iranian general has warned Turkey that its recent downing of a Russian fighter jet and its continued support for militants in Syria will cost Ankara dearly.
 
Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, who is senior military advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, said on Thursday that Turkey committed a "tactical mistake" by shooting down the Russian Su-24 aircraft near the Syria border.
 
“In addition to [having been providing] assistance to hired terrorists for five years and causing insecurity in Syria and Iraq, [Turkey] committed a strategic mistake in this incident and these issues will definitely cost Turkey dearly,” said Safavi, who formerly served as the chief of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
