Against the objections of the US and other NATO allies, Turkey decided to purchase Russia’s S-400 airdefence system. As a result, the US halted Turkey’s participation in the F-35 combat-aircraft programme. Turkey’s incursion into northeast Syria, following the US withdrawal, increased military friction between Washington and Ankara. By November, Turkish forces were organising joint patrols in northern Syria with Russian personnel.
