Turkish march escorts a Russian plane to extinguish the Mugla fires


On Sunday, a Turkish parade escorted a Russian plane carrying 40 tons of water to extinguish forest fires in the Milas region of the southwestern Turkish state of Mugla.

They reported that firefighting teams are continuing their efforts to put out fires in many areas of Mugla state.

The video clip shows how the Russian plane dumped 40 tons of water on the fire.


Forest fires affected several southern and southwestern Turkey states, including Antalya, Adana, Mugla, Mersin, and Osmaniye, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared them “disaster areas.”

The death toll from those fires has reached 6 deaths and dozens of injuries since last July 28, while the relevant authorities were able to extinguish most of them.
