Turkey shoots down Russian warplane For VIOLATION - VIDEO
« on: November 24, 2015, 12:26:08 PM »

Turkish media reports say Turkish jets have shot down a warplane that violated national airspace at the border with Syria.

The Dogan news agency quoting unnamed military officials said the plane was shot down on Tuesday. The agency said it crashed into Syrian territory close to the border with Turkey.

The agency did not say what nation the plane was from. The Independent however is reporting that the plane was Russian.

Russia news agencies are citing the defense ministry as confirming that the warplane shot down by Turkey was Russian.

According to the reports, the ministry said on Tuesday that the plane was on a bombing mission in Syria and crashed after it came under an artillery attack from the ground.

Moscow insisted that the jet, a Su 24, did not violate the Turkish airspace.

The ministry said the pilots have parachuted but added that Moscow had no further contact with them.

Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra, reporting from Gaziantep, said the plane was shot down near the mountains of Antakya.

"What we know so far, a plane was shot down on Syria's border with Turkey, near mountains of Antakya, a scene of a lot of violence of late.

Turkish media reports said the plane's pilots ejected by parachute.

Last month, Turkish jets shot down an unidentified drone that had also violated Turkey's airspace.
