With anti-air missiles | Turkish forces conduct military exercises for 150 members of National Front in “Putin-Erdogan” area

On August 20, the Administration of the Turkish forces instructed to replace all commanding officers present in the military checkpoints in “Putin-Erdogan” area, where this process including high-ranking officers as they were replaced by new officers from outside the region.

This took place in a surprising manner with no information regarding the reasons behind this decision.
