While citing the radar data as evidence, Russia asserted that two Belgium warplanes flew from an Air Force base in Jordan attacked a village in Syria. As Belgium denies conducting any airstrike, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov said, “Belgian Defense Minister Steven Vandeput deliberately deceiving people in Belgium and elsewhere in the world, or his subordinates and the Americans are lying to the leadership of Belgium.”
According to Russia, the two Belgium jets flew from Muwaffaq Salti Airbase in Jorden that were identified within no time. The accused airstrike was done on Tuesday on the Hassadjek village in Aleppo province that killed six civilians. Russia has said that the data from Syrian and Russian radars have confirmed the involvement of Belgium now.
“Detailed information about the operation of the Belgian F-16s in Syrian sky will be delivered to the Belgian side through diplomatic and military channels,” Konashenkov said. “Every aircraft type has a unique identifiable signature,” he said.
