My appearance on Press TV discussing the downed Russian jet SU24 by Turkey in Syria.

Key points:

-According to various reports, Erdogan’s son Bilal is deeply involved in buying oil from ISIS in hundreds of millions of dollars

-Turkey is hoping that its bringing down the plane and continued aggressive acts, it will eventually force a no-fly zone over Syria since it has been at loss following Russia’s successful strikes against the Islamic State

-Russia will not fall into the trap set by Erdogan and will not get carried away. Instead it will remain set on the goal of fighting terrorism in Syria. However, Turkish provocations and acts of aggression are likely to increase.
