Russia: Turkish artillery has shelled Syrian territory - MoD presents evidence

A Russian Defence Ministry spokesperson presented video evidence depicting what he said was a “Turkish border checkpoint, where large-calibre self-propelled artillery pieces had been deployed," during a press conference in Moscow on Monday.
Major-General Igor Konashenkov added, “we received shots from one of the units of the patriotic opposition which show that these self-propelled artillery pieces shell the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic." This, he said, “can be termed a ‘fact,'" adding, "this is conclusive evidence that the Turkish armed forces shell Syrian localities in the border area with large-calibre artillery pieces."
Konashenkov went on to label claims that Russian jets had entered Turkish airspace, "unsubstantiated propaganda" and “a planned provocation." He explained that “objective monitoring data demonstrated that there were no violations of the Syrian-Turkish state borders by the Russian Aerospace Forces: that is a fact." The general continued, “despite numerous statements by Turkish representatives, no actual data has so far been sent via diplomatic or others channels."
Konashenkov also reported that in the course of the last week the Russian Air Force had “destroyed 1,354 terrorist infrastructure targets in the Aleppo, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Damascus, Raqqah, Daraa and Deir ez-Zor provinces." He added that “twenty-four sorties were performed by Tu-22M3 long-range bombers [flying] from Russian territory."
