Footage has emerged of a huge Russian nuclear warplane flying over rebel-held territory in Syria, only a short distance from the Turkish border.
There are concerns that relations between Turkey and Russia could deteriorate even more, from an already low point.
The warplane was filmed over Idlib, and the Tupolev bomber was spotted in the airspace over the rebel-held area, which has suffered constant airstrikes.
Russia has been accused of bombing the area, despite being controlled by western backed moderates. Bashar al-Zoubi, who commands one of the largest mainstream rebel groups fighting in southern Syria under the banner of the Free Syrian Army, warned that the strikes would prolong the war.
In Britain the RAF has repeatedly been forced to scramble jets to intercept Tupolev bombers flying near UK airspace.
