Turkey Shoots Down Russian War Jet Along Syrian Border (Photos)



Turkish military has shot down a Russian war plane near its border to Syria, Ankara and Moscow confirms. The Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter planes on Tuesday morning after violating the country's air space and ignoring nearly a dozen warnings, army officials said.


However, Russia's Ministry of Defence claims the jet was in Syrian airspace, and was shot down from the ground. Both pilots ejected themselves from the jet and could be seen parachuting down to the ground, where one has been reported as captured by Syrian Turkmen rebels who are hunting for the second pilot.
