“Unacceptable”, “A well-staged shot in the back”, “Ankara entered war on the side of ISIS” – just some reactions from the international community to the Turkish attack on a Russian plane which was battling Islamic State extremists in Syria.

‘Turkish attack may only worsen atmosphere in Syria’ – Czech president

Ankara’s downing of the Russian jet was criticized by Czech President Miloš Zeman, who said that it is “unfortunately, a very negative signal.”

“Sometimes one may suspect that Turkey has informal contacts with Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL]. Considering that the Russian Air Force is fighting IS, the attack appears to be a too radical measure, that will only worsen the atmosphere in the region,” he said, as cited by Czech press.

‘Turkey entered war on the side of ISIS’ – Italian politician

“Turkey has officially entered the war on the side of ISIL by downing at the order of [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan a Russian aircraft which has participated in operations against Islamic terrorists in Syria,” Roberto Calderoli, the leading member of the Northern League (Lega Nord) Party wrote on his Facebook page.

According to the politician, Ankara is merely a “‘Trojan Horse’ with which assistance Islamic fundamentalism would like to take a clear shot at the West.”

“Why is Turkey still in NATO after what happened? What else can be expected of the UN apart from taking a strong stand on ISIL and its allies?” Calderoli wondered.
